  1. In the case of my closest Aunt and Uncle, my Aunt had Cancer pre-Covid that thankfully had gone into remission for a few years, then obviously lockdown kicked in and, as was the case with everyone, we weren't able to see each other. During lockdown her Cancer returned, and it was a massive fight to be able to be seen, with appointments and operations constantly cancelled and pushed back due to Covid. Finally after almost a year of waiting, she was scheduled in for what was by that time, a 50/50, last chance procedure to save her life. The night before she was due to be admitted for her operartion she was awoken my a massive clatter in the bathroom, and ran in to find my Uncle having had a massive heart attack due to the stress of it all and the thought of losing his wife due to the delays and restrictions. He was dead before he'd hit the floor. She was left with no real choice but to go through with being admitted the next day as it has been delayed repeatedly for almost a year and was already her last chance. Sadly post-op she lasted another 6 weeks and unfortunately passed away. I 100% understand the pressures that the hospitals etc were facing pre-vaccine and whilst it still hurts like hell that, in a non-Covid world they would both likely still be here, we're in a very different scenario now. Because of restrictions I left the house of two happy, relatively healthy people at the end of February 2020, and we parted with a hug, a "see you soon", and a wave as we drove off, and I never saw them again other than effectively twice sitting by myself in a crematorium 6 weeks apart with 19 other people spaced out in it, my mum bawling her eyes out and me not even being able to comfort her....just sitting 10 feet away watching her cry. Their deaths are hard enough but the real knife in the heart is that we all spent months sitting by ourselves in our houses not knowing that we'd never see each other again. Back then, I had more of an acceptance of what the restrictions were for, what they were doing and why they were necessary. But now? There's people living through that exact scenario for absolutely no reason whatsoever, that has never even had an attempt at rational justification. The whole thing has been handled disgustingly with what seems like complete disregard for anyone thats suffering, ill or dying of anything other than Covid, and I've all but had enough of it. I'm not sure who she thinks it is that she's protecting at this stage with all this, but it's definitely not the general public or the country.

  3. I’m still pretty fucking scunnered at that NS interview last night tbh. I know I probably overreact to the wearing of masks, I fucking hate it but I appreciate its relatively small fry compared to lockdowns and the material impacts restrictions have on peoples lives. I get that. But at no point in almost 2 years now has NS ever, not once, indicated that there’s a plan for this to be finished. Like done with, no more covid measures. And even now, triple vaccinated, omicron proven to be a shambles, she’s just put out a feeler out for continuing with low level restrictions ad infinitum. What the f**k? She might well lift crowd restrictions today but she is now coming across like she thinks live events and pubs are her gift to the public for good behaviour. This is not what anyone voted for. The condescending tone of that interview is unbearable. “No one wants to end these ‘protections’ more than I do” yet she won’t provide any substantive data to justify it. How is that right, how is that acceptable? You can’t just call it protections and make it go away. It’s a fucking insult to do so. Ive accepted all of this relatively calmly and been patient up until omicron came along. It’s been an eye opener and I’m absolutely finished with it.

  8. Leitch 'If I had told you two years ago that you'd put a small test in your nose every single morning after you brushed your teeth, you wouldn't have believed me'. Two years on, I still fucking don't Jason. Anyone who sticks an LFT up their hooter every single morning after they brush their teeth is surely in a tiny, tiny minority.

  9. What an absolute pile of nonsense. 1. Incompetence isn't a scandal - siphoning billions from the public purse to enrich cronies absolutely fucking is. Unless 600K (I think it was) equals 37 billion in your tiny wee brain, I'm afraid the WM mob are streets ahead of anything disreputable which has occurred north of the border. 2. Setting out restrictions for the entire country and then blatantly ignoring them is absolutely a red card. Even before we get to the lying about it. 3. "As promised"? How fucking stupid are you? Ask any passing fisherman or farmer if they believe they've got the Brexit they were promised - never mind the people doing business with NI. 4. Who, exactly, do you think will be paying for the furlough scheme? I'll give you a clue - find a mirror. 5. See 4. The one thing which has delivered in the whole shitshow - thanks to the NHS and volunteers (mainly public sector workers). Absolutely no credit is due to Johnson or successive health Secretaries. ETA: Turn the ship around? Don't make me laugh. The ERG version* of Brexit is only just beginning to impact our lives, post-Covid employment (which the scarecrow-headed cúnt continues to trumpet) is rights-free, minimum wage and demand contract modern slavery, and the Opposition can't bring themselves to oppose the descent into totalitarianism. But hey, that cúnt Corbyn had a beard, so.. *Which I refuse to believe even the thickest racist in Wetherspoons thought they were voting for.

  10. Not sure I follow you entirely. My position is that unless you are showing symptoms of covid, you should neither test nor isolate under any circumstances. It could be argued that this puts people at risk but people are at risk now because staff are off so there isn't a unicorn option. A guy died in Nottingham Hospital after waiting 9 hours to be seen for a heart attack. There are stories like this up and down the country. A bit less idealism and a bit more pragmatism is needed here from our leaders. This idealistic "nobody is allowed to die from covid" strategy simply needs to stop. It's killing people. People are going to die either way. The quicker our leaders accept that the better for all of us.

  14. To me learning to live with Covid involves making personal choices based on personal circumstances and individual attitude to risk not the First Minister instructing the whole country on what they can and cannot do. Allowing people to think for themselves is obviously not high on her agenda.

  15. It's not about being pro-Westminster. For me it's about unwarranted government intrusion in my life and the SNP seem to be struggling to shake their control freakery obsession I didn't ask for their "protection", I don't need it and I don't want it. Neither does my family. I want to be left the f**k alone. And right now there isn't a single party at Holyrood even remotely indicating that they would have any intention of respecting that if they got into power.

  16. And that is the fundamental question here isn’t it? Should the government have the ability to turn “protections” on and off at the drop of a hat ad infinitum based on things that ‘could happen’? That’s not what I think their job is, tbh.

  26. He has to go. An invite to 100 people for a bevvy by his own PPS - has to go. I had a mate who passed away suddenly on 21 May 2020 and his funeral cortege consisted of the car with his coffin plus his 80 something mum and dad. Many of his pals stood on a pavement on their own to watch the car go by - it was all the respect we were allowed to pay. This c**t was quaffing away with dozens of people. He's denied it, set up an enquiry, had to replace the cùnt running the enquiry because said cùnt was at it too. What does it take to mark Johnson's neck? Get him to f**k. Lying, thieving b*****d.

He's buzzing that Fraser Bryden has signed. He has his sights set on playing for the Ayr United first team one day and this gives realistic hope.

  32. For me with Sturgeon it's the condescending, arrogant attitude she gives everytime shes questioned she genuinely gives of a "how dare you question me" attitude everytime someone asks her any question that isn't entirely to her approval. I'm not sure if it's a new thing or if it's just become way more evident during the pandemic, the eye rolling and the looks she gives some of the journalist is childish and pathetic.

  37. We will beat East Fife on Saturday. We are now creating chances, against Dumbarton we scored 6 and could have had 10, against Airdrie we scored 2 and could have had 5. Even allowing for our honking defence we will out score East Fife. A long, long way to go but we are definitely more competitive than we were under Sheerin. Fourth place is very much achievable and we should be going all out to make the playoffs. Giving up on half a season is silly talk.

  38. Can't say this too often. If there are dodgy looking symptoms - get them checked out. Don't fall for the "too embarrassed"/"I'll be nothing"/"I'll leave it to see how it goes" crap. Don't end up as a name on this thread. If you get the bowel screening kit, get your crap sample sent off to Dundee asap (and who doesn't like sending crap to Dundee?). The guys there are heroes. Breast screening, cervical screening, whatever screening. Do it. The earlier it's spotted the easier it's dealt with and the lesser the treatments. A camera or finger up the back passage is actually the easy option. It's you choice in the end. Just don't leave until it is the end. Please.

  40. Glorious, a genuine no win situation for the sweaty nonce. Either: 1) public humiliation in a cross examination, or 2) an out of court settlement costing millions and finishing what's left of his tawdry reputation. Option 2 should also ensure plenty of hard questions about the future of the royal parasites given that the public will essentially be paying out millions to avoid the Queen being too embarrassed by her paedophile son.
