Oh so intelligent, oh so visionary but oh so neglected by those pesky SNP politicians and by the ungrateful working-classes, Common Weal‘s oh-so disappointed leader returns to oh-so inaccurately find fault in the SNP administration’s Covid-strategy.
I’m certainly not going to take this paragraph by paragraph. Maybe I shouldn’t bother at all given the traffic on the site:
The above traffic checker gave the Tusker 60 000 and Wings 900 000!
So, just three things
The SG had the courage to go well beyond the 10pm curfew to ban all visits to other households, contrary to England, and would have closed all hospitality if it had borrowing powers to fund furlough, yet is somehow ‘locked into’ the 4 Nations approach? Nope, don’t get it.
Update: And now students obliged to download app and stay out of pubs!
Scotland never really diverged though it had a longer and harder lock-down leading to England having 35% more infections and 45% more deaths, to this point. Thousands of lives saved yet apparently no different. Nope, don’t get that either.
The SG strategy should have had ‘much more scrutiny?’ Really? Daily attacks in the Scottish media and from opposition parties mostly based on unfounded or partial evidence all since rebutted. Nope.
That’s it. I’m off to do something more useful. Load the dish-washer.
