The Greens today welcomed support from Edinburgh-based “Rebus” author, Ian Rankin, as confirmed in today’s Scotland on Sunday, joining other cultural stars Karine Polwart and David Shrigley who have already said they will be backing the Greens.
Top Lothian candidate, Alison Johnstone said:
“Elections aren’t won and lost with celebrity endorsements, but it’s certainly pleasing to know that Ian Rankin’s second vote on Thursday will be for the Greens. The polls show some serious momentum in our direction, and we’re picking up new members and new voters like never before. During this election, the other parties have consistently shown a failure of ambition, but Greens will continue to make the case that building a fairer and greener Scotland will require the better off and big businesses to pay their share.”
