As Herald hunts former First Minister leading academic tells them to self-isolate or we’ll do it for them

The Herald has a taste for SNP blood, headlining Mark McDonald only two days ago and pushing daily the notion of an SNP civil war. To be fair, this pales in comparison with the piece associating Salmond with serial killers and the day, 6th February, when they posted ELEVEN stories on Derek Mackay!

  2. Haven’t bought/read the The Herald for years. Ditto the Scotsman. Will continue boycott until independence is achieved. Then I might buy one for a laugh.

  3. On the topic of self-isolation (in relation to coronavirus), I’d like to point out that the government in Iceland has said anyone with symptoms who self-isolates will be paid their normal salary. A decent sensible govrnment unlike the UK one which may well be forcing peple to continue working, even with symptoms, as they have no right to any sick pay.
