So a return to masks and WFH this winter instead is the alternative to passports. Stunned at that sort of U-Turn to be honest. If things get that bad I suspect it will be passports over mask mandates, a reintroduction of masks would finish him in England.

What an embarrassing state our country is in.

 

It really would be the icing on the cake if it turned out that our mask obsession is what is causing the extra cases up here (if the case numbers can even be trusted in the first place).

Imagine if instead of flying past our faces, scientists discovered that the extra suction produced by reducing the gap through which the same pressure of intake breath has to go, sucks in covid soaked particles through the sides of masks which would normally have passed us by.

Watching TRNSMT on the telly, Liam belting out the Oasis hits, the crowds going wild, crammed in like sardines. Looks fucking awesome although I’m probably now 30+ years beyond their target demographic.

Good job they’ve all had their LF tests and brought their masks to get the lucozade curers from the Spar shop on the way home. 

The pantomime in this country is beyond parody. Poll tax, Trident and countless other causes called for mass civil disobedience with varying successes.

Yet, our generation (25-55, I’m looking at you/me), we’re all cowed behind useless paper face coverings just coz oor Nicola sez.

Biggest compliant shitebag population ever. Shite state of affairs.

One of us hasn't read that article properly.

Only if cases soar and I can't see people going back to widespread masking up now given that people can clearly see they don't work in the real world, regardless of how many computational predictions or tightly controlled lab experiments wrongly suggest otherwise.

I reckon the next thing will be to try and kill mass transmission once and for all by vaccinating kids.

I got slaughtered for saying the same thing.

You're right though. We just don't appear to have the stomach to think for ourselves as a nation.

Compliance is easier despite 18 months of crystal clear evidence that masks are a waste of time.

Still hopeful they'll bail from vaccine passports and that all this noise is just threats to increase vaccinations.

Still think they'll be coming for kids as the next step.

I'm hypothesising, you tit.

Once a scientists, always a scientist. It's what we do.

There's just no way you'll be able to understand the scientific reasoning behind why I am even suggesting it so let's drop this shall we?

We don't deserve to be an independent country as things stand. At least England will eventually draw the pant wetting losers in the diddy government up here into line like they have for everything else. Just tragic that it will be so drawn out.

England:

Scotland:

Shameful. Pathetic.

But what you’re forgetting is that masks and vaccine passports are in place to ‘keep people safe’ and NS makes no apologies for that. 

Which explains why our case rates are so much lower than England whose policy is a ‘threat to the world’ according to independent sage.

Oh wait…

Think it's been proven that the jump in cases in Scotland is due to the wind coming up from the south blowing all the covid particles from England into Scotland,

Apparently Boris said 'these things happen'.

Nicola is correct to be cautious and following the science. Not that any of it puts anyone out. A bit mask wearing, who gives a f**k? 2 or 3 clubs have an extra bit of admin to do, so what? Hardly a fucking major infringement of civil liberties ffs. Cases are surging, deaths on the up, You cant just do f**k all.

Meanwhile, court jester Boris, is just being the populist and climbing down because he is under threat yet again from his backbench.  He's just the spineless incompetent c**t that gives priority to his popularity than people's health.

Don’t agree with that.

Scotland is the case capital of the world with strict mask wearing.

What does that prove? They’re useless and probably part of the problem.

Deaths are quite minimal when you consider 150 people die every day in Scotland.

Although cases are high but starting to drop not many people are getting seriously ill.

The solution is vaccinations and once completed that should be it. Stop the nonsense, get GP’s back to seeing patients and treat Covid just like a normal, nasty disease that we need to live with (or give up living).

If the reports are correct, I agree with Boris.

I have been surprised how little we seem to know about whether masks prevent transmission or not.  Amazed that more research hadn't been done pre-COVID into how masks affect transmission.

Yeah, Sturgeon and the SG totally screwing this up, that’s why they’re plummeting in the polls.

Polls don't t tell you if a politician is doing a good job or not. They might suggest that a substantial section of the population disagree with you, but that doesn't mean they are doing a good job. 

Since you like comparing the SNP with the Tories, I can only assume you think 'Boris' is doing a great job.

Granny Danger presumably realising he has nothing to offer in the way of meaningful discussion after his 5 million cases a day fiasco, so just resorting to posting irrelevant polls.
 

Like posting the results of the Brexit referendum - remember not everyone who voted for Brexit actually wanted Brexit.

The 'enforcement' of this up here for the football and nightclubs will be laughable. Yet more theatre simply to placate the Lovejoy's and to polish and protect Sturgeon's massive ego.

I also do love how many of the mitigations the iSAGE weirdos pine for are in place in Scotland but aren't in England, and yet simply look at how things are playing out. Remember when clowns like TheJTS98 was giving it big licks over their 'unethical experiment' nonsense? 😅

It has simply become the political and moral nonsense that it was always destined to be.

Of course, a truly shocking revelation when you see the state of lickspittles like yourself. b9rreGI.png
