See aw this feigning confusion over pretty simple and clear advice coming out of Nicola Sturgeon’s mouth, it’s getting a bit worn oot, is it not?
Oh borders, borders, borders, whine the yooniversity of the bewildered, red, white and blue, and the hard of thinking.
‘The virus doesn’t recognise borders, so it’s pointless having different precaution advice for Scotland and Our Green and Pleasant Land’ they yodel from the rooftops of Bedlam. Politicians, journalists, talking heads, social media shouters and ex rugby players, they are all at it.
Wee Davie Mundell, the former Viceroy of Joy, bringer of all things misery and smoke and mirrors on behalf of the British state to the country he was born in from the country he sycophantly adores, is the latest. He’s “confused”. (To be fair, it doesn’t take much to confuse him) on the issue of face masks, as he describes it, and the conflicting advice coming from Scotland’s First Minister and those he toadies for in London, even though he got huckled out of his job for a guy with a weekend hunting estate.
Firstly. It’s face covering, not masks, masks are for frontline health workers, the heroes that Panorama the other night so easily exposed as being thoroughly let down and left in mortal danger whilst doing their jobs by the government that Wee Davie loves so much and craves to get back into. A government criminally negligent, a government that had a cheek to stand in a minute’s silence the other day in tribute to over a hundred medical staff who could still be alive if they had done their job properly and protected them.
It’s face covering in public places and public transport where it might be difficult to adhere to social distancing. Easy really. Around yer ample gub and nose Davie. Could be a scarf, a cloth, a pair of Union flagged Y- fronts, could even be a cutoff section of that ermine cloak you’ve got hanging in your wardrobe in anticipation of a wee £320 a day reward you are expecting at some point for services rendered. Any of the above will do.
It’s not mandatory, it’s advised. It’s not considered 100% effective, but here’s the thing, there is some evidence that it does help slow the spread of the virus as we protect each other from much of the droplets associated with coughs, sneezing and talking. ‘Some’ is better than Rona roulette I would suggest.
Sweaty Matt Handless at the daily evasion exercise that the London Government Corona virus updates have become (they cannae even be bothered to provide somebody to sign for the deaf) tells us that ‘the science’ doesn’t support wearing face covering.
I’d love to see that science the Tories keep going on about, the science that varies from most other countries in the world, apart from the one governed by a big baby in a nappy the size of a hammock, the science that is killing the people of the UK in droves, that science.
Matty the perspirer, on several occasions has also disavowed the idea that stopping 50,000 people a week flying into the UK, without health checks, quarantine or restriction is a sensible thing to do, as in his, and “the Science’s” opinion this isn’t adding to the spread of the virus, a view which frankly is clearly bonkers, a situation which in reality will continue to perpetuate the spread of Covid-19 and kill more people until eventually, tails between their legs, the Tories decide to take that action. So I wouldn’t really pay the slightest bit of attention to him.
The media are at it as well, trying to stir up the constitutional shyte, like a wee group of primary school
kids taunting two of their classmates into a fight, and misreporting the First Minister’s words, claiming constitutional chaos and confusion.
Just stop it. The whole world is involved in just staying afloat and keeping people alive right now. The people of Scotland will remember, when this is all over what they saw and heard for themselves in the Scottish Government virus briefings, and how these were subsequently reported in the media. We have long memories.
