I don't think I'll be taking criticism of my intellect from a moron who can't work the multi-quote function on a football forum seriously, but thanks for your input anyway. 

You are very welcome.

Massive staff shortages will end this discriminatory madness.

I'm no longer surprised politicians can't look ahead and realise this will be a problem.

There's a reason why they are in those roles. Most of them would struggle to get jobs in any other field.

Maybe they did see this coming and decided it wasn't a problem or priority, just a side effect of policy.

So violence across the world against vaccine passport mandates is increasing at quite a rate.

I hope Sturgeon is watching.

You cannot exclude people from society and not expect them to fight back.

Incitement. Section 59 of the Serious Crimes Act. 

Off to the penal colony with you m'laddo.

It won't happen here.

Far too many unquestionably accept everything the SNP does, and those that voice disagreement are instantly dismissed as "yoons" or "tories"

The world of work has changed overnight and it's beginning to look like it might be either permanent or long term.

Dinosaurs like Duncan Smith lack the ability to adapt and should step aside in favour of those who know how to manage this change.

Its nothing to do with IDS being a dinosaur. As with all things to do with the tories its about money.

He is looking out for his mates whose property portfolios include the buildings that get rented out for offices space. If companies downsizein space its less money for them

Another minor celebrity anti-vaxxer has died in the US after spending several weeks on a ventilator.

Rob Skiba, a fundamentalist evangelical Christian, young earth creationist and flat earther (because of course he was).His Facebook feed was full of ridiculous anti vaxx memes. Now it's full of condolences....

I’m actually not bothered about having to show vaccination proof to travel, either digitally and/or by also taking along my printed ‘Ah’ve hud’ two shots o’ Astra Zeneca at Ravenscraig ya’ bass’ document. As someone who regularly travels to the USA, it would be stange to rail against having to show vaccination proof, but to continue to be happy to jump through every other feckin’ hoop…. I haven’t recently travelled to an Arab country they don’t like much, I’m not bringing in goods to sell, zillions of dollars, plants, seeds or perishable foodstuffs. I need to provide the name and address of my hotel, is my visit business or pleasure, have I left my firearms at home, have I ever been a member of a terrorist organisation, have I been convicted of any crime, any cases outstanding, is my ESTA valid…. Could be here all day… have I ever been in a Turkish men’s sauna? Ever seen a grown man naked? Ever seen St Mirren finish top 6?
 

Christ knows what else good old Uncle Sam knows when I hand over my biometric passport. Proving I’ve been double jagged by a student nurse in Motherwell isn’t that much more of a problem.

Even if there was any large numbers protesting against restrictions it would not be given significant coverage by the media either here or down in England, since they wouldn't want the majority of people in this country to suddenly realise they might never get all their freedoms back and that would affect the possibility of winning a future referendum.

I have 2 passports due to business travel and a few years ago I did the ESTA online visa thing for a holiday there and I used the passport that has my north Korea visa in it 🤣

 

Never even batted an eyelid when he checked my passport at us immigration

Nicola’s disciples tell us the opposite is true and the media queue up for a bit of SNP bashing.

Erm, on what level would the media on either side of the border worry about torpedoing a Yes vote in a future referendum?

Yous get 'tauld' by Linda Bauld.

https://www.thenationalnews.com/world/uk-news/2021/10/14/public-health-head-warns-cop26-could-spark-fresh-wave-of-covid/

Cop26 could set off a new wave of Covid-19 infections in Scotland, a public health expert has warned.

Professor Linda Bauld, chairwoman of public health at Edinburgh University, said it will be “risky” to hold the climate change summit in Glasgow, which is expected to draw up to 30,000 people.

Due to a lack of accommodation, many guests at the UN climate change conference will to stay in the homes of people living in and around the city.

The last time world leaders gathered in the UK was at the G7 meeting in Cornwall in June. That month saw a rise in Covid cases in the area, but the UK government denied the gathering was to blame.

Prof Bauld said any surge in infections after Cop26 could spread outside the city and across central Scotland.

“Yes, I am worried about a Glaswegian spike, and I’m not worried just about Glasgow. The central belt is interconnected,” she said.

“And we’re seeing declines here but we may not be able to hang on to those gains.

“We’re trying to open up and everything’s trying to operate more normally.

“Everybody’s delighted to be able to go to the cinema or a concert or have more people in their homes.

“This is hard-won progress thanks to vaccines and other things.

“But having huge mass events at the moment, I think it is risky.”
