Humza Yousaf jokes about ‘breakup’ with Greens as Scottish coalition deal ends

Humza Yousaf joked about a "breakup" with the Greens after he ended the so-called Bute House Agreement underpinning the Scottish government coalition on Thursday, 25 April.

The first minister denied ending the pact because he did not want the Greens to end it first.

As a reporter asked him if his decision was "because it is better to do the breaking up yourself than be dumped," Mr Yousaf jokingly responded: “I wouldn’t know."

Mr Yousaf removed Greens co-leaders Patrick Harvie and Lorna Slater from the government, and the SNP is set to act as a minority government going forward.
