Carlaw gets it all wrong as poll shows Scots reject Tory plan to risk working-class workers’ lives

In the Herald yesterday we read:

In a letter to Ms Sturgeon, Mr Carlaw demanded the First Minister produce daily evidence to justify her “slower approach” and convince the public it was the right one.

On the same day, YouGov did a snap survey revealing that 60% of Scots oppose the UK Government’s plan to encourage people, who can’t work from home, to go into work and 72% support the Scottish Government’s view that only: “Stay home, Protect the NHS, Save lives” makes it clear what I am supposed to do.

Readers may also remember the poll at the end of January which placed Carlaw as the second-least trusted leader in Scotland with only 8 out of 1 039, just ahead of Richard Leonard with only 6.

In pushing for a faster approach for those who can’t work from home, Carlaw is clearly prepared to risk the lives of working-class employees in manufacturing, hospitality and retail. As a former failed car salesman, he will of course, be pleased that these workers will have to travel by car rather than by public transport.

  1. You have to have some kind of way of dealing with that kind of image in order to follow the news. No wonder people turn off.
    It is a dilemma. Many people i know prefer to live in a world without Carlaw’s face and before that Davidson (an endless stream of it).
    I try to explain that any inner peace is nothing if you can’t include Carlaw’s face but i am not a good working example.
    My next line of defence is i would rather die unhappy facing reality than happy and ignorant.
    It is a tough sell. Have i sold my soul or saved it?

      1. Dudeism does exist . . . I checked it out years ago after the Blogs senior Dude gave it a Mention.

        You’ve gotta wear Jesus boots.

  2. The BBC are doing their worst to break “that Sturgeon’s Lockdown”

    Last night’s TV attempt to hang 2000 extra Covid-19 deaths on the Scottish Gov’s “late”Lockdown,. The comparison of Scottish deaths with Southern Ireland but not England. All intended to undermine trust in The Scot. Gov’s judgement / ability in handling the pandemic and ultimately undermining the public trust required for a solid public response to the FM’s call for an extension of the Lockdown.

  3. There’s a showdown coming. Hope Scotgov have their weapons and ammo as we need them to protect us all…
