No calls for Wales First Minister or Health Secretary to resign but in the creepy world of Scottish politics and media….

As the Covid death rate in Wales surges to twice that in Scotland and the infection levels soars to six times that in Scotland, there have been no calls for the First Minister of Wales or the Health Secretary to resign, from opposition parties or from the media.

I don’t think there should be. They clearly made a mistake but it would do little good to call for a sacrifice. To politicise these deaths would be shameful and Plaid Cymru have not.

However, in Scotland, where drug deaths have doubled in six years but the causes go back for decades to Conservative and New Labour government failures, a head had to roll. Politicising death comes naturally to the creeps leading our opposition parties and media outlets.

I’m disappointed by the decision to roll over to the media clowns. Look at this:

I feel sick.

  1. WHY IS WESTMINSTER HEALTH MINISTER NOT ASKED TO RESIGN
    AS HE STOPPED DRUGS ROOM IN GLASGOW GETTING
    ACTIVATED
    SO SURELY HE IS GUILTY OF MANY DEATHS
    LETS ASK WEE LENNON
    SHE NEEDS A NEW QUESTION

  2. I think Joe has suffered because he pushed back a bit against the “scandal” story, instead of doing what Nicola did today when she said the Daily Record article was fair. She seems to have judged that saying you will always make mistakes in reference to the pandemic has gone down well and extended that to the drug deaths issue.

    I don’t know if the claims about cutting funds for rehab facilities are entirely correct, but if they are then it seems hard to justify – there surely won’t be that much money involved. Given that it’s true, someone had to go but I’m not clear whether it should be Joe.

      Yes, that looks like the strategy

  3. The first thing must do is to review the stats by recasting ours using the same metrics as used in England and other European comparators. Let’s make sure our apples are being compared with others’ apples and not pears.
    Reset our stats collection to only use
    the same inputs as England.
    Let’s see how big our problem really is.
