We were down at Braehead yesterday, 1600 allowed in Ikea but only 200 in the Arena. 

I'd love to hear the science behind that. 

Meatballs are the cure. 

Seriously though, IKEA away is a tough day out.

That's why I've been saying all along that I don't respect any of these people, even those who are saying what I am hoping to hear.

The real scientists, and the only ones worth praising, are those who saved our arses by developing a working vaccine. The rest are tedious hangers-on media whores who deserve nothing but our contempt for getting in the way.

this didn't happen. worse, its prolonged and exacerbated the hysteria

agree on cowards who stayed silent until opinion is now shifting. this bloke knew the score from the start and didnt go public

Just the £4,300,000,000 being written off for fraudulent covid payments. 
A 25% fraud recovery rate is actually pretty good. It's the level of fraudulent claims paid that's the issue there but given the haste of the scheme it should surprise no one. There are tens if not hundreds of thousands of people out there looking to exploit situations like this. Like a sweetie shop for large OCGs

Unless he did and his opinion was filed in the bucket since it didn't sit well with the advisory group or SG policies at the time, a bit like JST98 for us in the early days of this thread. We only hear what we want to hear.

He's been mentioned a few times on here and hasn't been silent. Search for Woolhouse on this thread.

A loophole they allowed was in the case of small rental property owners who were set up as a business, claimed 100% rates relief, quite correctly, but could then claim grants from the council if they were so inclined.

Absolutely wrong morally to claim grants.

Its a real shame that you cant agree with any of this unless you are a tory.

The ones who constantly complain about this thread being an “echo chamber” must therefore welcome this new divergence of Covid opinion in Holyrood.

If I get my booster on Wednesday only for the Vaccine Passports (the only reason I'm getting a booster) to be scrapped a fortnight later I'll be a bit frustrated. Not that I wouldn't fully support the move.

7 day Cases Update:  3 Day lag to allow reporting to be accurate.  Cases DOWN 61% in the Tsunami which was due according to the Scottish advisors to peak end of January or into February. 

What is now very interesting for me is that the differences between the councils now are very small. This 100% cannot be blamed on behaviour, where previously you maybe had a council with 10 times the cases per 100K than another. This is 100% the new cold now.

Total Cases Scotland 7 days 8th January to 14th January were  87,049 to 33,929 Down 61.02%, Positivity was 27.4% now 18.9%.  Cases per 100K were 1592.6 now 620.7

Home Nations Weekly Cases  per 100K update  :  England   1925 to 1273 Down 33.87%, Wales 2381 to 884  down 62.87%, Northern Ireland 2905 to 1478 Down 49.12%

Cases in Europe in terms of of numbers per 100K  France 2842 to 3147, Denmark 2200 to 2595, Ireland 2971 to 2497, Portugal 2127 to 2415, Switzerland 1975 to 2036, Italy 1839 to 2022,  countries over 2000 and still mostly rising.

Council progress in last week as follows.
