Rant from Brenda Steele:
Gordon Dewar got a spread in the Press and Journal today from Tom Peterkin yesterday:
Gordon Dewar says Scottish Government’s coronavirus vaccine plan will cost lives and jobs
The coronavirus vaccine may not be widely rolled out until the end of next year as a result of the Scottish Government’s “woefully inadequate” plans, Gordon Dewar warned MSPs.
Appearing at Holyrood, Mr Dewar, Edinburgh Airport chief executive, delivered a damning verdict on Nicola Sturgeon’s handling of the pandemic and even accused the first minister of campaigning against his industry.https://www.pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/news/politics/scottish-politics/2725075/gordon-dewar-coronavirus-vaccine/embed/#?secret=0bFnIldDCl
He got repeat exposure at the ScotGov Coronavirus Press Conference today, using exactly the same overblown phraseology from Michael Blackley of the Daily Mail at 46m 55s in.
Gordon Dewar is not in public health or any other position that relates to the handling of a pandemic. In fact, he has no expertise whatsoever in this area. He is Edinburgh Airport chief executive. Just a businessman. Nothing more.
Why do two UKMSM outlets think that Mr Dewar’s pronouncements are of any interest whatsoever to the public?
Mr Gordon, Mr Peterkin, Mr Blackley, here is a tip. The public does not zip up the back of the head.
We know what you are about.
We are all tired of the pandemic, but we are even more tired of SNPBaaad stories, so do stop peddling ill-informed ignorant utterances as Gospel Truths.
