Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As someone aged 18+ who can’t get their second dose until the 28th of September I’m absolutely fizzing about this. I’m already unhappy at the law being passed for ethical reasons but this totally fucks me over.
Already bought tickets for the Scotland game only 11 days after my second vaccine. Does this mean I won’t be allowed to go? Through no fault of my own.
I cannot stress this enough, f**k this government. 
Absolutely delighted I cancelled my Green Party membership, clearly shown they don’t have any backbone and don’t stand by the views that they supposedly have.



I would suggest finding a journalist to run with this type of story, I'm sure you're not the only person in this boat.

He was born to be Sturgeon's toady.
Not in the slightest bit surprised that he has folded like a cheap deckchair after being given a sniff of power and a pay rise. As someone mentioned before, Nicola will have him cutting the ribbons on a new oil rig or refinery before this parliament is done.

Any idea of a starting point for taking this forward?

Gillian Mackay of the Scottish Greens sets out the reasons behind her party's backing of vaccine passports after "hoping" it would not be a necessary measure.

She says Scotland is "on the brink" of reimposing restrictions and cites health boards that have stopped certain procedures due to Covid pressure.

Ms Mackay asks Mr Swinney to divulge if there has been any more uptake of the vaccination among young people since last week and argues for more encouragement for these age groups to get jagged.

She says the passport scheme does not appear to have increased vaccine hesitancy, but says she "implores" health boards to reach out to groups that have already expressed concerns.

 

A short while ago the SNP permanently lost my vote by legally enforcing mask wearing.

Unfortunately for the Greens, today, having just won my vote for the first time, have done a "Lib Dem" and have immediately lost it again by voting for vaccine passports.

Neither of these parties will ever receive a vote for me in the future at any election.

You don't treat adults like children and you don't try to force medicine into people who don't want it.

Period.

So now I'm in the position of being politically homeless for the first time in my life.

I know quite a lot of folks on here were fans of PH, its quite sad to see him give up his political principles for a diddy cabinet job. Actually thought despite not approving of all his parties ways and means that he was a man of principle, suppose it just shows that a wee glimpse of power can change people.

Why are cases so much higher in Scotland than around Europe? Why is Scotland at 800/100k where as other European countries are down in the 60-80s?

We are a nation of bat b*****ds with an appalling relationship with food and alcohol.

That's the truth of it I'm afraid.

It's not news really. We've had the nickname of the "sick man of Europe" for decades.

All those pies and pints are starting to hit home.

And then we have the bare fucking cheek to wonder why the NHS struggles with demand.

Patrick Harvie knows that pandering to the sizeable Lovejoy demographic is worth more in today's political climate than any sort of principled stance, especially when it comes to holding onto the only modicum of power he's ever held in his specky wee life.

Have to say it's cracking patter I'm in a position where I feel in all likely hood I don't have a party to vote for. The Socialist Party didn't stand any candidates at either the last Holyrood or Westminster elections & I wouldn't touch any of the other fringe/smaller pro-indy parties (there's more than you'd think) for a variety of reasons.

Got to feel for those people who have season tickets and now face not getting to the games they've paid for.

I always had the SNP and the Greens down as having principles.

Both have shown themselves to be no better than Johnson's mob at Westminster.

They say one thing and then change their minds within weeks. You just can't trust them on anything.

Vaccine passports have crossed a line.

Wonder how long it'll take them to realise this could be the SNP's poll tax moment.

I just don't understand why these people won't fucking listen and won't fucking think through the consequences of anything for more than 5 seconds.

Find a hack from a paper that likes to write negative stories about the snp on Twitter with open DMs and slide on in would be my guess.

Chris Musson at the sun would be my starting point.

I find myself remaining pro-independence (or at least the notion of independence, because I don't actually believe any of the parties on the current political map would make a good go of it in the short/medium term) but without a party I would be morally comfortable with actually lending my vote to.

Mrs. B used to work at the Scottish Parliament.  For years every time he’s on the TV she tells me how dreadful he was to deal with and how he was the most self important up himself of every single MSP.

I won't lie. Despite being doubly vaccinated I'm having a total heads gone over this tonight.

Absolutely livid.

If there's a planned public protest about this where it's not just anti-vaxxer nutjobs going, I might be tempted to join it for the first time in my life.

I need to go and have a wee lie down. 🤣

I think we need to brace ourselves for the possibility of major street protests and outbreaks of violent disorder over this.

Most people probably will just groan and accept this but a significant minority might be pushed to breaking point.

As much as I’m desperate to go to the game, I’m not so desperate I’d be willing to compromise my morals to the point I would speak to The Sun.
