Do Tory and Labour councils find it harder to read Scottish Government guidance on pubs?

Councillor Marie Boulton claimed "confusion" over social distancing rules inside pubs and restaurants was to blame for the spread of the Aberdeen coronavirus cluster.

Is it an IQ thing? I’ve read somewhere that left-wingers tend to be smarter than right-wingers. I certainly am and modest too.

As Aberdeen’s outbreak grows, local councillors fearing they might get the blame, are getting their oars in first.

Licensing convener, ‘Independent’ councillor Marie Boulton, was quickly onto the P&J site:

Councillor Marie Boulton insisted she was not “playing the blame game” while suggesting frailties in Scottish Government guidelines were at fault for the spike in coronavirus cases.

Not playing the game? The blame game? Of course not. Who could think such a thing?

Boulton doesn’t explain, of course, why only Aberdeen seems to have suffered from these strange ‘frailties’, nor what they might be. Too long sentences? Big words?

Boulton is not the only one panicking. Labour Group leader, Jenny Laing was on talkRADIO this morning with that other brewer, Julia.

  1. What is it about the Scottish government guidance that these people don’t understand? Serious questions have to be asked about their competence. Failing to follow clear Scottish government and scientific guidance. This is about saving lives, what is so difficult for these councils about that?
    I wonder what WHO would think of their reluctance to take responsibility at such a crucial time, anyone not following rules laid out is putting everyone at risk.

    The fact that Michael Gove travelled into Scotland, (recent, but anyone know when exactly?) met with a group of people from god knows where, with no apparent adherence to the Scottish government advice and guidelines on social distancing, or wearing masks, needs some very serious investigation.
