In my local store this morning, the disgraceful undermining of a strategy, backed by experts such as professors Bauld and Sridhar, personalised so as to demonise the the most caring and popular and most democratically representative political leader, in the UK.
The press should be ashamed. You can’t even see the supposedly intelligent Telegraph, top left, shouting: Sturgeon signs death sentence for Scottish pubs.

Surely in the midst of a pandemic which has killed thousands in Scotland and where cases are surging, that’s not the question? He could have got an S5 pupil to research the scientific evidence for him and presented that instead?
BBC Scotland have more tasteful headlines but the same perspective. First Minister tries to save lives but that’s not what matters to us?
If compliance levels turn out to be less than required, to suppress this virus, we know who to blame.
