Scottish Politics Thread

The 'draconian meadures' were not designed to save lives as such, but to contain the outbreak - which it did, and to ensure the NHS were not overwhelmed - which it did.

A week or so ago Scotland posted death figures lower than the average, partly I contend, because many had already succumbed to Covid-19 early.

Covid-19 is a vicious, nasty virus which, just because you did not get it, does not make it any less of a killer; especially to those of us of more mature years.
A Mr D Grey would like a quiet word with you over a portrait you refuse to hand back…...
quiet word = a few expletives or five..

For those who may be tempted by this, Gorgeous George has a sober reminder that someone, somewhere has to pay for it.


He was quite indefatigable on the point.
Anyone else noticing upturn on George Galloways profile of late ?
Does he fancy a wee pop at the Holyrood elections Next Year I wonder ?

That would be great, can you just see Miz Sturgeon's blood pressure rising every time Gorgeous G gets to his feet to ask for, nay demand, answers from the government. The entertainment factor would go through the roof, compared to now. Add Joanna Cherry to the mix and that parliament night turn into an entertaining watch.

Its a tad rich of Galloway to accuse someone else of economic illiteracy but in this occasion he is right.

The governance of Scotland (and other places outside of London) has not been handled well. The question is not could an independent Scotland do better because there’s no doubt it could but would we elect a government that would. That seems quite unlikely given that so many folk are addicted to socialism.

I have friends who take a scorched earth approach to independence. They think that the ragbag if socialists and greens and other riff raf who would run Scotland would make such a balls up that there would have to be a Thatcherite style revolution which would end socialism for ever.

As ever - careful what you wish for.

I think she is right to be angry on this one. It appears that the criminals (scammers makes them sound like scamps) have been using her identity to target vulnerable people.

Several years ago my grandmother was robbed by 2 fighting aged males. I wondered at the level of depravity that would lead anyone to think its OK to rob an old lady in her 90s (as she was then) and how they could get someone else to agree to the plan. This is not really much different. What kind of scum targets the vulnerable?
 
Nicola Sturgeon says lockdown "must be extended" in Scotland and warned that any easing of restrictions would be "very, very risky".

The First Minister, speaking this lunchtime, said she would prefer all four UK nations to keep to the same rules.
I wonder if the footage / photo's of fighting in various beer gardens played a part in this decision :D :D
