Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (29 Jan 2020)

Patrick Harvie: ..., the Scottish Conservatives pretended to be the Conservative moderates in these islands, there are no Tory moderates any more. They have all thrown in their lot with the Brexit extremists and the Boris Johnson regime. Everything that that Government does is now on them. There are no more Tory moderates. As for the Labour position, I say to Richard Leonard that the Scottish Green Party is...

Scottish Parliament: General Election Outcome (17 Dec 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...has a more urgent task to tackle, first. That task is to protect people from the party that brought us the bedroom tax, the two-child limit and the anti-immigrant hostile environment. Now that the Boris Johnson Government has a majority, we can expect it to be brutal to the most vulnerable people in our society. Does the First Minister agree that investment in public services, in community...

Scottish Parliament: Artificial Intelligence and Data-Driven Technologies (13 Nov 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...—we can make choices about that. Tom Arthur mentioned deepfakes. Another of the CDEI’s papers is about deepfakes and shallowfakes. In the past few days, members may have seen a video showing Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn endorsing each other for the role of Prime Minister. It is a convincing and compelling piece of work. That took a bit of effort and resource to construct with...

Scottish Parliament: Supreme Court Judgment (Response) (24 Sep 2019)

Patrick Harvie: The First Minister is quite right to say that Boris Johnson must be held personally responsible for this action. Boris Johnson is someone who, throughout his career, has shown contempt for the truth, contempt for Parliament, contempt for devolution and—although it is out of character for me to stand up for the Queen—contempt for a monarchy that he professes to believe in. However, is it...

Scottish Parliament: European Union Exit (No Deal) (5 Sep 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...behaviour has come only from those of us on the pro-independence side or only from those outside the Conservatives. If the Conservative MSPs in this chamber were working under the constraints of a Boris Johnson whip, how many would have been purged by now?

Scottish Parliament: Misogyny, Racism, Harassment and Sexism Against Women (28 Mar 2019)

Patrick Harvie: ...language in relation to matters such as this is one of the factors that make some people think that that kind of violence is acceptable? What does it say about our situation that the language that Boris Johnson, for example, used when he described the appearance of Muslim women attracted no censure or discipline from within his party, and that he is still being touted as a potential...

Scottish Parliament: UK Withdrawal from the European Union (Legal Continuity) (Scotland) Bill (1 Mar 2018)

Patrick Harvie: I assure the member that the only people who are having fun in this situation are expensively educated idiots like Rees Mogg and Boris Johnson.

Scottish Parliament: Economy (EU Referendum) (20 Sep 2016)

Patrick Harvie: ...from even considering the option of independence. Thirdly, in it, they utterly abandon any credit that Ruth Davidson gained during the Brexit debate. One minute the Scottish Tories were facing down Boris and the Brexiteers and predicting that leave would be a disaster; now they have rolled over, ignoring their own convictions about Scotland’s interests.

Scottish Parliament: European Union Referendum (Implications for Scotland) (28 Jun 2016)

Patrick Harvie: ..., take only what we want and give nothing back to the community of nations across Europe. I am not surprised that we have heard shameless dishonesty, racism and self-interest from the likes of Boris Johnson, UKIP or the right-wing media. We cannot allow that kind of rhetoric and language to become part of the Scottish political landscape. I remind the chamber of something that Ruth...

Scottish Parliament: Local Energy Companies (29 Mar 2012)

Patrick Harvie: ...I found it hardest to contain myself when Mary Scanlon suggested that we see this in the context of the big society, just as in the previous debate we were urged to see fans of cycling as fans of Boris Johnson. As members will understand, if we had thought that, we would have put it in the motion—but we don’t, so we didn’t. Nevertheless, Mary Scanlon also mentioned certain successes...
