The Scottish and English press on Aberdeen


Once more, the Times seems to have a better grasp on what is right:

The MSM campaign to open gyms and shorten lock-downs will cost lives. They should be ashamed but I don’t suppose lizard brains are capable of that.

  1. “In 1954, the limbic cortex was described by neuroanatomists. Since that time, the limbic system of the brain has been implicated as the seat of emotion, addiction, mood, and lots of other mental and emotional processes. It is the part of the brain that is phylogenetically very primitive. Many people call it the “Lizard Brain,” because the limbic system is about all a lizard has for brain function. It is in charge of fight, flight, feeding, fear, freezing up, and fornication.”,lizard%20has%20for%20brain%20function.

  2. Yes, it’s generally understood that dead people can’t ‘work’ and that a ‘job’ is of no use if you suffer major long term health problems after contracting covid19.

    The ‘msm’ have lost their marbles, must be all that home ‘working’.

    1. The media that operate in Scotland have been tasked (MI5?) with “changing the narrative” in this country. You can see it in the partisan coverage of Health (coronavirus lockdown), Education (the exam results and subsequent amelioration), Law (the Salmond trial–compare it to Damian Green).
      Make people angry, cynical, hate-filled, suspicious etc.

      Cochrane in the Torygraf calls for “The Trial of Sturgeon”, if they cannot get Salmond—– a British nationalist conspiracy.


  3. It might have something to do with Magnus Llewellyn, since becoming Times Scotland Editor, having carefully recruited the better Herald and Scotsman journalists to join the Times. Of course, Murdoch’s politics are anti-Independnce, but, perhaps the Times has the better staff.


      1. I did note in a posting to The Times, Boothman’s background. My posting was strictly accurate and in no way unpleasant or abusive. It was not published.


  4. And now for something completely serious
    As we approach Autumn and Winter
    It is of the utmost importance for both Health and Economic reasons that the number of new infections are kept to a manageable level
    1.If seasonal influenza Nrs . are high leading to undue strain on resource’s
    2.Given above if covid develops a 2nd wave then we are indeed in a most perilious situation
    The MSM are not only lost in a Forest and unable to know a tree that is the one that they lean upon and has diseased roots that surely shall topple as more of them lean upon the Story Tree
    But do Not even know the forest which they have become lost in
    And in their case the forest is dangerously
    Sown with Mines


  5. We all know that this has in reality less to do with jobs than it has to do with revenue generation. It would be interesting to find out at this stage just how many of those jobs are still available, or indeed how many of the staff aren’t already going through the redundancy process. A process made necessary by the Chancellors refusal to continue furlough payments at the level paid at the start of lockdown. You can smell where this is leading, that blame for job losses will be laid at the feet of the SG for refusing to open Gyms which would endangerl both staff and customer, rather than where it should lie, the Chancellor.
