Popped in to my local tonight for a quick one (Station Hotel). It was dead. Barmaid said her shifts have been cut to the quick, and it would be better all round for the pub if they just shut the whole lot down and brought furlough back.

What a sad state to be in 2 years and 3 vaccines in.

I do hope the virtue signallers of the thread explain to people like this barmaid how selfish they are being when they are worrying about their livelihoods.

Pretty much exactly the boat we are in at my work (pub in Aberdeen), we are quite lucky that most of the staff have holidays to use that have to be used by the end of February so hopefully the hardship won't be too much for us in terms of hours.

Maybe folk who don’t want Covid for Christmas will be taking it easy until that’s out the road. I’m out on Boxing Day.

The don’t have Christmas parties message that came out on 9th December won’t have helped.

I’m not in favour of this latest announcement but then I don’t know what the situation is with staff call offs in the emergency services. Either way, if this is going to be a regular feature then governments need to start planning for it.

Im quite comfortable in saying you’ll have more police officers in Scotlands communities with this stage of the pandemic than you did when cop26 was going on.

Mental Health a "buzzword"?

You're trying way too hard. It would a right fucking shame if a mod emptied your shite account for posting that shite.

I repeat. Away and take a f**k to yourself you c**t.



Nice to see a troll taking the piss out of mental health and contributing nothing binned.  

I'm going to sign up for the 2,000th time and will probably be banned by the end of the night (once again without explaination).  I find it hard to believe I'm clasified alongside the likes of this.   13 years of posting and not even a single warning point.   It's not my fault I have a detached house or diabetes. 

Grahame.

Jesus H Christ, it's like a competition to see who can outdo each other in the fucking mentalist government stakes. Your move now, Sturgeon.

 

 

What a fucking joke that is. Fining employees too when they may be forced to be at their work place by their employer. f**k that.

Sturgeon and Drakeford are going to look like the tinpot clowns they are.

 

What are we missing here? Why is this data seemingly out there but not being reported by any major media outlets?

I can't get my head around it, genuinely, the rush to lockdown (sorry, protect) when it looks like it's almost petering out already. 

The only think I can think of is emergency services, specifically in the NHS, being severely understaffed due to having to isolate, but that can't be enough to justify all this surely. Clearly they're using this as an excuse to cover the fact the NHS is utterly fucked and has been fucked under their stewardship

That, this afternoon, was the worst advert for getting boosters that I’ve seen. I’m mindful that the opposition are inept, but surely there must be one free thinking, dissenting voice amongst the SNP ranks, that are willing to stand up against this tinpot, dictatorial lunacy!! A dreadful afternoon for Scotland.

Is this not absolutely banned? That in itself is a joke btw, but it's a topic for another day.

Mental Health is nothing but an overused buzzword and Tesco will always need shelf stackers

You sir are a pr!*k, go take yer face fur a sh!te

Without being pedantic, Mental Health is two words and a well known contributor to early deaths in young men. But you knew that

The only thing I can think of is that the different demographics of SA and UK make it slightly more difficult to compare the two.

The whole situation is almost like a mirror image of the data from Italy in March 2020, when folk were saying 'italys population is really old that's why they have had so many deaths'. And that was used as excuse for inaction on lockdowns in UK and elsewhere.

But, you’ve got a massive proportion of that population who are immune compromised, malnourished and without access to proper medical care. So put all that together and their doctors are still telling us its essentially nothing, yet here we are with the bed shitting.
