Remember when the vaccine was our fucking route out of this?

Having oil was a bad thing as well.

Always voted SNP, however its hard not to use expletives when describing their performance. 

But honestly it's the tone of NS that is grating. If you are very very good whittle boys and girls and if I'm I'm in a good mood you might get some nearer normality with a stay cation. Patronising waffle. 

There better be objective regional (better not be in tier 4 in the majestic granite city due to Lanarkshire hell holes) measures in the route map. Last time it felt changes happened on a whim.

Lets see what that roadmap brings - from her speech today I can't see how it won't be thoroughly depressing. People are at the end of their tether and I don't think she quite realises that. 

I think she understands that perfectly well. However, case loads are only back roughly where they were in Autumn which was high enough to pretty much put an end to hospitality, hospital capacity is under high high thankfully diminishing pressure. You can't open up while hospital capacity is under that kind of pressure so we are stuck for a while, regardless.

We won't see any impact from vaccines until into March and probably April before it should have stopped most deaths and hospitalisations.

If there is a quicker way out of this, I'm all ears. Hospital numbers and vaccine effect are what needs to be monitored now.

Genuine question virginton, are you on the asd spectrum?

No. Is this something that you normally ask people on the Internet because you don't agree with their point of view?

Did Aberdeen get to Tier 2 at any point originally? I remember Lanarkshire got tier 3 for about 5 minutes that was nice.

Yes as I want an independent Scotland and they (and the Greens) are the only parties who give a f**k about Scotland.  

Covid has c**t all to do with an independent Scotland or Scotland remain in the UK.  Folk saying their not voting for them because of their Covid handling is wild.

It's the single biggest thing that has happened in Scotland in my lifetime so only right it factors into how people vote.

Yes I will still vote SNP for independence but certainly through gritted teeth. I think they have revealed a lot about themselves during Covid which makes it precisely 0% likely that I will vote for them after indy.

Dont get me wrong, theres bright side for me today. Kids back to school which they and I need, wife back work fulltime which she and I need. Bairnardo brewing will be able to commence a massive Spring ramp up in production. But....

As I have said before, I wont lose my job because of this, or it's highly unlikely at least, but I generally dont look at this from purely my own point of view. The lack of regard for peoples health and wellbeing aswell as their businesses and jobs is what irks me the most. I dont have any skin in the hospitality game but f**k me, how folk can watch what is happening here and be ok with it is beyond me.

I don't think anyone thinks it's OK, and I don't think anyone is feeling any less frustrated than you, right now.

On the other hand hospital numbers are still very high, and the probable effect of vaccine is not visible yet. No government could likely open up before it had hard data that the vaccine was working as hoped. 

With any luck, any new tier system/Road map emphasises the impact on local NHS services to a higher degree than raw case loads.

There is no quick way out of this.

I don't think anyone is expecting pubs to open now but gyms,. hair dressers, retail and cafes should be open in mid March (or sooner for Tuechters) given the way cases are trending.

f**k that, I'm happy to vote for the nothing but pubs party. Shut the schools keep everything else closed and just let folk boot the arse out of their liver.

Is anyone actually still going to vote for this clown collective in May? Seriously? 

Millions will, guaranteed.

So you'll try and vote another party in to take over and do a, presumably, better job?  Who would that be, out of interest?

But there is a way out, which has consistently been not only avoided, but actively shot down. 

As if said before, if you are a business owner in hospitality, do you put your faith in the words of the government, or some sort of self deciphering, aye they are just trying to stop folk ditching the restrictions type assessment.

My partner has now not traded for 12 weeks aside for 2 weeks before xmas. Despite being a hairdresser, she is not eligible for any type of help due to only becoming self employed in Sept 2020 and we've been told there is no sort of financial assitance going to become avaialble to her any time soon. 

I've tried the local MSP and Business Gateway to try and find some sort of loophole to try and get a bit of support for her and have been told they are 'disappointed' there's nothing forthcoming. 

I'd love to know what sort of incentive she now has to stay closed instead of just going 'f**k it' and working on the downlow. Because to be perfectly honest, that's now where we are as I feel we're having 2 fingers stuck up at us every time we ask to be treated on a par with other businesses in her sector.

Would it genuinely be difficult to improve on incompetence? 

When you have Willie Rennie, Dougie Ross and A/N other in the running, sadly yes it is.

You are allowed to say you vote Tory by the way.  Baroness Davidson doing these daily briefings?  Oh ya fucker.

One thing I’m enjoying is the amount of people on social media kicking off.

The same people who refuse to wear masks and have done whatever they want since last March.
