Not the majority. There has been a huge influx into Paisley in recent years with new house building, but there are certain areas where nothing much ever changes.
Indeed. Ferguslie Park, Glenburn and Foxbar are noted hives of scum and infamy. And in-breeding.

Ewing is a prick. Full stop. If he doesn't shut his gob, Nicky will no doubt have to sack him.
Scotgov does not sack Ministers Minsters resign to spend more time with there family's and work on there Golf Handicap it is just coincidental that occurs around the same time as them being out of favour!!!

Informative as always. But if cases are still rising, albeit low numbers, in the Central belt, why is there to travel restriction imposed There?
Some measures work better in different areas.

Folk are more likely to be travelling further for work and leisure in rural areas.

I'd have to agree to disagree Fang using Leicester as a precedent.

Indeed, as I said different measures in different areas, can also add at different levels of infection and different concentrations.

In Central Belt, we still have relatively low numbers that we are hoping to control by tracking.
The local spike in Leicester was predicted to raise exponentially giving rise to a need for more severe measures in an urban environment
 
The difficulty with the herd immunity is that it is going to require a lot of infections in the community. Whilst the majority will be asymptomatic or of low grade, there will be a number of cases which will be more serious and a significant amount of deaths
thats correct, but without a vaccine we have no alternative so we need to crack on with it and stop fooling ourselves that we can master this disease - a significant amount of deaths from suicide, cancer and poverty are equally as bad but the longer this goes on the worse they un nymber they will be and will far outweigh the CV deaths -theres no win win here but on the plus side the treatments are now better and today theres a study out proving Trump was right about hydroxichloriquine greatly reducing the impact on 50% cases when taken early - the last bunch of idiots who wrote an anti hydroxi report were found out pdq as making it up with no supporting clinical data and the lancet ractually emoved their article - as a direct result 100s or 1000s have now gone without treatment with it and suffered worse or even died because some ********* decided to play politics because they hate Trump - there are other a multitude of ways of dealing with CV other than just a lockdown which has now collapsed in and around where I live near Glasgow , its time for plan B

Ferry bookings for the tenth and thirteenth are practically empty, which is a bonus for the PSNI.
they don’t have to worry about wee Shuggy from Kinfauns Avenue, expressing his democratic richt to go walkabout for a day or two.
Alas ScotGov haven’t banned Eammon from the Bally Murphy Knights of Iona* travelling over to the twenty seventh county aka Coatbridge

* changed to appease those may resemble the above
That was my first thought but it August she is off.

I have told her not to take any green or orange just grey.

What infectious disease is this? Certainly not C-19 as it's less bad than a bad Flu virus in that young mostly immune and many have previous coronavirus immune responses. Tiny number of Global deaths (0.03%) show this

Much being posted recently is old disproven scaremongering and factually wrong

Face Masks? No - unenforced mandate is Face Coverings, covering nose and mouth; face visors are one listed face covering.

Nobody questioning new rule and asking "Why now and not in Feb/March?" "Why with this new rule is 2 Metre rule still imposed"

Figures
A fatal pandemic? Most definitely not, less dangerous to all but old than Flu - ~45% of death "with C-19" were in care homes

1,355 UK deaths with C-19 and no diagnosed pre-existing condition

Percentage of deaths with Covid-19 and pre-existing life threatening condition: 95.23% have one or more P.E.C - NHS England data

What other wild conspiracy theories do you subscribe to? CIA/Mossad responsible for 9/11? The moon landings only happened in a Hollywood lot? The Russians didn’t cheat in the Olympics? Etc
 
Funny how in 2014 the SNP insisted vehemently that there would be no border and that we wouldn’t notice crossing from Scotland into England just as an Austrian doesn’t notice crossing into Germany. And yet in the last week we suddenly have a.................................................... border.


In terms of international law, there is no "border" between Scotland and England. Neither, for that matter, is there one between England and Wales.

And the most mentions of a border has been from Conservatives, North and South of the border

Disagree. Why are some Nats protesting because some claim there is no actual border between Scotland and England and they are adamant that the road sign proves there is.

If that’s the case then you must get your passport ready for your next visit to Inverness.

Mrs Murrell will be delighted - she has been itching to shut the border to ra evul toaaaaareees ever since she got her sweaty paws on the reins.

She must thank God every day for sending her the excuse.
