Right at the end of his extended piece on Johnson, Macwhirter returns to his true love, attacking uppity young women who think they can tell him what to do:
‘As this column has pointed out?’ Is that a psychological ‘tell‘ like when the Queen or Wings say ‘we‘ when we all know it’s just them on their own ? I’ve done it too but I’m being ironic and/or sardonic. I am!
Anyhow, does he think that adds weight? But, if you keep on writing mince isn’t it still mince? A bigger pile of mince and more rancid at the bottom but still essentially mince?
With regard to the old folk ‘decanted’, how many times need I remind folk like him that repeated reports show they triggered no outbreaks, may have actually improved infection control and that it was the poor agency workers who did?
He knows why we did not lock down earlier. That other too-intelligent for him woman, Devi Sridhar, has just today reminded everyone that ‘Scotland’s hands were tied by Tories in Covid response’, that the only source of advice was SAGE and that ‘Sturgeon’ had acted to set up her own equivalent. Even then the essential furlough payments were reserved to Westminster.
On deaths, Hungary 304 per 100K , Czech Republic and Bosnia 282, Bulgaria 253, Slovakia 226, Belgium, Italy, Croatia and England around 200, Portugal, France and EU average around 166, Romania 156 Scotland and Sweden 140.
No lockdown in the autumn? Oh yes there was, where the data suggested it should be – Glasgow, the 2 Lanarkshires and the 2 Dunbartonshires resulting in far lower infection rates.
Is no one doing quality control at the Herald? This guy has lost all of his plots now.
I’m reminded of someone whose workload I was responsible for. Never confrontational but never giving up. Coming back again and again to plead for special treatment – a determined wimp.
I’ve accused this old guy of being a bit obsessed with the FM but I seem to have written about him writing about her more than 20 times this year alone. Do I have a problem?
