A union boss has criticised the co-leader of the Scottish Green party for recent comments he made about the oil and gas sector.
Following Shell’s decision to pull out of the controversial Cambo project last week, Patrick Harvie suggested that only the “hard right” now support new oil and gas extraction.
Speaking on the BBC’s Good Morning Scotland radio programme, Mr Harvie said that the “political landscape” in Scotland has shifted, with most of the major political parties no longer supporting maximum hydrocarbon production.
