He's trying to save his own skin by talking up the power of a lockdown, because lockdowns will be looked back on as this decade's Iraq War.

You can take that to the bank.

Absolutely this. It will never be acknowledged how little impact NPI's have had.

I think I perhaps misheard, did she say indoor hospitality ie indoor pub would be 26 April? 

Yeah but no booze, that's no change. Only booze outdoors.

Which is a total cop-out. The organisation with the public health specialists is the Scottish Government, not the fucking Shetland Council.

Surely they ran public consultation rather than the council just deciding what people want :lol:

....only without alcohol. You can get a meal and a juice for example but beers need served outside.

Johnson channelling his inner Macron by indulgent in a spot of vaccine rubbishing. What, then, is the point in getting vaccinated if they haven't reduced the cases/hospitalisations/death? 

I have little time for Johnson, but even if he's indulging in a spot of arse covering here to justify his decisions, how many times do we need to see stupid statements during this pandemic have real world consequences? Even more so where vaccines are concerned. 

There seems be a very weird lack of trust/faith in the vaccines from politicians. Other than standard "wE JuSt dOn'T KnOw!!!" drivel that we are all sick to the back teeth of, I'd be interested to see why they keep playing down the impact of vaccines. 

I suppose we'll just ignore that much more remained open duing the most recent lockdown with the More Transmissible and Deadly Scary Kent Variant than did in the first lockdown and ignore that the rates still went down despite panic that even closing schools might not keep the R number below 1.

That was the impression she gave, islanders seem split on allowing "outsiders" back in. Presumably depends on the nature of their business.

Hopefully this turns out to be no higher than the baseline risk of blood clots as the J&J Vax would absolutely blast the U50s

It was as optimistic and as upbeat as Nicola can be, however in reality who wants to go for a drive with the family/ other half to end up somewhere that is closed apart from having a takeaway coffee. I suppose it legitimises folk who might have been travelling to see family and friends but it’s no real change tbh.

That must be the most positive update she's given.

She was visibly smiling at one point.
