No announcement at all would have been better than this shambles.

I don't personally have an issue with politicisation but you pick your battles.

This is one they surely can't win.

They’ve already won.  The majority of voters in this country are as complicit as Welshbairn.  SG will be excused for every action.

Can you not read as well as not understand facts?

Proclamation from you "(under 30's) don't burden the health system"

My response "150 admitted in the last week, so contributing to the hospitals being incredibly stretched"

Away and raffle yourself with your 'if you think that's a burden on all of society'. Waffle & pish, keep it up mate 🤣

I think it would be best if you just take your simping elsewhere if you think 150 people over the course of a week going into hospital is something society should be concerned with.

I simply don’t believe it will play out like that. They will virtue signal that they support it all, but their actions will say otherwise.

See for example Christina Pagel claiming she would lock herself in the house then announcing she was off hillwalking a few weeks later.

The Welsh government said it would "carefully consider" the announcement by London, but also voiced concern at the changes to the testing regime.

Northern Ireland is yet to announce whether it will be making any changes to travel rules.

Actions won’t say otherwise.  They’ll still get voted in for every election in the foreseeable future, hence excused (by complicit I meant the belief the SG could do no wrong.  I realise that wasn’t clear in my post).

Shortbread tin image nationalism is a truly brain rotting poison it seems.

Neither of those responses are like the one the Scottish Government gave.

I would have preferred the NI response to be quite honest to the half-baked amateur statement the Scottish Government put out.

The Welsh Government essentially plays the same politics the Scottish Government does, but at least they had the decency to scrap the farce of wearing masks in hospitality settings.

Norn Iron will do whatever London does for obvious reasons.

Just catching up on the last 24 hrs of this thread. A complete heads gone by Bob. I dont even think the LoNg CoViD!!! brigade that go on news channels would protest its case as much! Who knew a glorified PVF/ME would gain such a fan club

The Welsh Government seem to have learned from previous errors that rushing in with a politicised decision can bite you on the arse very quickly.

Not surprised they have aired "concerns" but they will end up following the UK government here - any other decision is folly.

Eluned Morgan, Wales' Health Minister, said while a "four-nation collaborative approach" to border rules is "critical" for "effective" arrangements, any decision made here will take into account the potential risk to public health.
In a statement, the Health Minister emphasised that international travel continues to pose a risk, particularly because of the threat of emerging variants of concern. Ms Morgan said the official advice is still to only travel abroad if it is essential.

She continued: "A four-nation collaborative approach is critical to evaluate and implement effective border control arrangements.

"As Wales shares an open border with England, and most travellers arriving in Wales enter through ports outside Wales, it is not effective to have separate border health policy arrangements for Wales."

However Welsh Government are yet to decide whether to implement the same changes to rules on testing as England announced on Friday 17.

The Health Minister explained that "changes are not without risk" as they "weaken the line of defence" against importing cases of the virus.

She said: "We will carefully consider the UK Government’s proposed changes to the border
health measures, which include the removal of pre-departure testing and introducing
lateral flow tests instead of PCR tests on day two of people’s return to the UK. 

"Our considerations will be underpinned by robust evidence and our main focus will continue to be on reducing the risk to public health in Wales.

And your point is?


They clearly recognise that the shared border makes it impossible to have different arrangements.

Haven’t checked recently but are there even international flights to and from Wales at the moment?  Seem to recall they were all stopped for ages.

They said they're going to have a look at the evidence before coming to a decision, as Scotland are and no doubt Northern Ireland too. They were still arguing about it in London this afternoon, I don't get the hysteria about a short delay in the other countries.

Why decide regards the removal of the amber list and not this?

Why not delay any announcement until the full decision was ready?

The removal of pre-departure testing and amber lists was flagged for days before Shapps' announcement - are you trying to tell me the Scottish Government didn't discuss the possibility of pre-departure testing being removed?

It looks to me like petty political point scoring for the sake of it.

See when you keep using the same modus operandi there comes a point when you end up looking like the boy who cried wolf.

I've no issue with politicisation but there is a time and place for it - this isn't it.

I never thought I'd see the SG being so authoritarian and bringing in needless rules to show they "care more" (masks and not allowing a negative LFT for events). The last few months have made me border on despising the SG and goons like Humza and Swinney (and Godley...)
