Joyous Billy Cumberland (16) has won his dream move from the Herald to the Daily Mail after capturing the image of the First Minister listening to Jackson Carlaw or Richard Leonard, today in Holyrood.

The report, once more suggests that highly trained professionals kept sick residents in care homes rather than transfer them to hospitals because Scottish Government advice recommended that it not be done. The recommendation, written by medics, was to protect the vulnerable residents from the traumatic experience of transfer and invasive testing.

The Herald report, by Tom Gordon, does not remind us of the care home’s responsibility for infection control to protect all their residents and the long-standing familiarity they should have with it after decades of controlling flu and norovirus outbreaks.

Leonard’s sickly account of one tragic case and the unspeakable cynicism of attempting to lay the death at the First Minister’s feet, reeked of rodent.
