Re: Coronavirus

It’s already the case that you shouldn’t leave England for other than ‘essential reasons’. I’m not sure Scotland are doing anything different.

Re: Coronavirus

It seems to me that the various governments and governing regimes have gone mad.

Students are imprisoned and indeed being ripped off by having to pay for their prison stay.

Police can fine you on the spot for going about your business as you may have judged necessary.

You can't leave or enter Scotland.

The list could go on.

They’re trying to prevent hundreds of thousands of people from dying/having long-term health issues.

There was a clear potential political benefit in forcing Nicola Sturgeon to govern, rather than endlessly campaigning, in the hope that even her most ardent supporters would come to see her as a fallible human just like the rest of us.

It doesn’t seem to have happened so far though.

In most respects you can barely get a fag paper in between her decisions and Boris’. Where more obvious differences exist they’re around timing and necessary adjustments for local circumstances. Their approaches simply aren’t fundamentally different. Yet Nicola is very popular and Boris ... isn’t. The polls presently tell us a lot more about how politics is viewed in England and in Scotland than how people really feel about coronavirus measures.

I'm really worried about Tories in Scotland they're fast becoming extinct. They should get the same protection as red squirrels... Maybe on a reserve on some small island somewhere..

I think Scottish Labour are the true red squirrels in name and rareness.

Free flu vaccinations rolled out to over 50s from December

People aged 50 to 64 will get free flu vaccine from 1 December as part of expanded flu vaccination programme this winter.
https://www.gov.uk/government/news/f...-from-december

I know this is not Covid-19 but it is a step forward in safe gyarding a younger age group who could be at risk in catching flu which could well reduce their chance of just shaking off covid-19.
