Ours Was a Campaign of Hope and Inspiration

This has been a unique time in Scotland's history. Over the last two years we have had an opportunity which billions of people across the world can only dream of - an opportunity to imagine a better country. The result is close but clear, and naturally we accept the decision the people of Scotland have made. In the Green Yes campaign we sought to give a distinctive vision of Scotland as a beacon of social, economic and environmental progress. I argued that Scottish independence was far more likely to deliver that vision than the backward-looking and increasingly broken British state centred on Westminster.
