Conveniently ignoring the statement that footfall is down 40% and venues were closing early.  Doing a great job of keeping venues open.

Again, no context.  Down 40% on when? This time 2 years ago?  Last week?

Any other reasons why it might have been down?  For instance a boycott by females due to drink spiking?

Hyperbolic pish.

No change there then.

The Scottish Government have invented people being arseholes when knocked back from nightclubs is a new and interesting take.

The article conspicuously notes it is individuals refused entry for not having a vaccine passport, if only there was some action individuals could take to solve this. 

An appropriate alternative headline would be "Vaccine Passports Working."

But then where's the fun and faux rage to be had there?

Indeed - 550 people over the whole weekend.  How many venues are there?

Sounds to me that this means 1 or 2 people per venue (at most).

 

Are England having these problems, or the Nordic nations? The vaccine passports certainly don't have any health or medical benefit - they only cause issues for business and further division in society.

Just you carry on simping and defending the indefensible, though.

Down 40% from where? I'd posit that it's up from last year. Glass half full folks.

I'd be surprised and delighted to hear how the Nordics and England have solved the people being dickheads when refused entry to nightclubs issue and keen to hear more details of this miracle at your earliest convenience.

Happy to carry on simping.

I presume “simping” includes pointing and laughing at your pathetic pearl clutching?

By the way, it is going to be spectacular watching the climb down and scrambling from the 'public health' authoritarian clowns when cases start to plummet south of the border again - all without needless interventions on people's lives. It already started yesterday.

But of course, the vile lapdogs on here like Wee Bully and Willie's Tache will continue to batter on like there's not a problem with anything going on up here. No sir!

They don't have people being refused entry because they aren't discriminating on supposed 'health' grounds, bud.

Oh, we all know you will carry on simping.

You predict that attendance of nightclubs will be higher when they are open, compared to when they were forcibly closed and literally zero people could enter? Some prediction that!

Christine Tait-Burkard I think it was on Radio Scotland this morning saying we need further restrictions, specifically the roll out of vaccine passports for all indoor hospitality and events.

I’ll be surprised if we see to mid November without this coming in. Essentially no vaccine, no entry to just about everywhere, except the supermarket.

Nothing to see here.  Move along.  Must be finding it hard to breathe with your heads in the sand for so long.

We have industries that have been on their knees because of closures, we're still putting up barriers to recovery and you don't see the problem with that?

The Scottish Government giving us a far lower quality of life than what England is currently enjoying to err... make them look more caring than those nasty Tories who are enabling better (normal) life.

Vile.

The Scottish Government don't want a night time economy.

Why were venues closing early?  The article says this:

“Some venues had decided to close at midnight, taking them outside the scope of the scheme, because of problems with staff recruitment and welfare, it said.”

So, the reason for closing early wasn’t to do with the scheme, but with staff recruitment.  Are you suggesting they can’t recruit staff because of the vaccine scheme?  If the answer is yes, i suspect they would have come out and said that explicitly.

Wales are going to add more restrictions this week. 

There is never any mention of when any of this might end. All this shit for a vaccine which doesn't prevent infection or transmission and for u60s has a marginal impact on severity of illness. It is nothing to do with public health.

Not how I read it.  Yes some venues decided to do the above to take them outside of the scope.  I read the first part as venues closing early because there wasn't enough footfall to justify being open.

Quick trip to the Metro Centre this morning before heading back up the road. Amazed at the voluntary masking compared to my last trip down South a few weeks ago. Al least 40% in Metro Centre and went into Asda earlier and it would have been closer to 70%. Looks like the media fear campaign is working to spook people.

The vaccine passport isn't protecting  anyone over 60 from catching the virus so i've no idea what your point is. 

But if the current state of affairs is now permanent then it should be clinically vulnerable people who adjust their lifestyles. 

RE the first part, reducing the number of people becoming infected at large events will shirley reduce the chances of the elderly catching Covid in places outwith such events.

I agree with the second point though, especially as 2019 was a time when it was deemed acceptable to tell those vulnerable to flu to avoid non-ventilated crowded places etc.

How odd. I've just checked and it's working fine for me.  They must be out to get you.  

Yes, that must be it 🤡

Alternatively, it just isn’t effective for everyone. Just because something is working fine for you as an existing user doesn’t mean it is working for everyone attempting to download it again.
