Nicola Sturgeon praises ‘groundbreaking’ deal with Scottish Greens

i’m absolutely delighted to confirm that the scottish government has reached a proposed cooperation agreement with the scottish greens working together to build a greener fairer independent scotland is groundbreaking groundbreaking in both scottish and perhaps even more so uk politics most importantly though it is an agreement that meets the challenges and the opportunities of our time our parties will of course retain our distinctive identities this is not a coalition and we do not agree on everything but we are coming out of our comfort zones to focus on what we do agree on despite all of the risks inherent in any decision of two parties to cooperate more closely we are choosing to work together and we are doing so not out of political necessity but for the common good this is indeed a historic moment this deal would see the greens entering government for the first time ever in scotland or anywhere in the uk and it couldn’t come at a more important time the last 18 months have been an incredibly difficult time for us all and as we seek to rebuild our lives we and our economy we really must seek to do things differently we must build a fairer compassionate country and we must do everything in our power to tackle the climate and nature emergencies and deliver a just transition for all of scotland
