Some businesses fear trade will travel south to England, where there are fewer (sic) rules. The restrictions are just too much (sic) and with Dumfries being that close to the border, everyone (sic) is just looking at England and saying, let’s just go down there. My brother-in-law is a taxi driver and he is booked up for taxis to Carlisle. You can imagine what other drivers are like.
Ian Jardine, Bar owner, is BBC Scotland’s expert on pandemic restrictions today, before anyone who might know anything gets a word in.
Really, is this where we are now in reporting by the state broadcaster? My brother-in-law is a taxi driver?
All I can find is that, in July 2020, the Daily Record sent a lad down to Carlisle, after the first lockdown and he reported ‘scores’ of Scottish drinkers but only be seemed to be able to interview less than a score and one pub-owner there said: “It hasn’t been that busy, not as busy as we thought it would be but there are some Scots here.“
Come on then BBC Scotland, get Disclosure Scotland down there for Friday night. Let’s hope they don’t get hurt.
