The Twitter headline had NS 'plunging' Scotland into lockdown this afternoon whereas BoJo is merely 'introducing' one tonight. 

BBC has pictures of the police for the Scottish one and pictures of 2 metres apart for the English one.

Same action dressed up all differently.

BBC is an absolute joke now after the Tories have corrupted it further than it already was.

Newsnight last night after usual SNP bad stuff asked Dr Whitford for her professional opinion on the vaccine. She stated it can't do all the heavy lifting and will create as many problems as it solves if we don't get cases right down for June. Cuts instantly from her to introducing a government propaganda peice telling us the vaccine will be on the road to sorting it by mid-February so don't worry. If it was Russia Today I'm media would rip the absolute piss.

What's mind-blowing is the total incompetence of the Tory government. Pre-Christmas Boris the Clown was promising meet-ups would be allowed for the festive period then 24 hours later he did a complete u-turn. Last Sunday on Nationsl TV he was urging parents to send their children to school as normal and less than 24 hours another complete U-turn saying it was not safe to send the kids to school and we were in full lockdown. Then there was the complete u-turn on Brexit talks. All of this and more and yet the media give them an easy ride.

Who would have thought the torys being incompetent 

Well they are unionists so to be fully expected and fully expected that the ultra-unionist media do not haul them over the coals for their rank incompetence. One rule for one.....it is why this union stinks to high heaven.

The union I speak of (and you know that) is the one Scotland were locked into under duress over 300 years ago. Pity you have no regards for Scotland's history ....if you did then you'd learn to abhor this so-called United Kingdom and how it was formed.

No different at all. Scotland still being robbed to fund a shitty union with the rest of the UK. Anyway the race is now on to who leaves first between Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

No. We are part of the Union and are not being robbed.

This is interesting.   Biden's nominee for National Security adviser for European Affairs is Dr. Amanda Sloat.

Who is Amanda Sloat, well she's an American academic who was steadfastly against Brexit.

So that's probably not great for Boris Johnson, but why isn't this in the Brexit thread.

Well, her doctorate is from the University of Edinburgh and in the past has been a special advisor to the Scottish Parliament.

And in 2002, she wrote this book.

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Scotland-Europe-Study-Multi-level-Governance/dp/3906766977

So that's a pro-Scotland, pro-Indy voice right at the heart of Biden's foreign policy team which can only be good.

A bit of good news today.

British Army recruitment in Scotland is apparently "in crisis" with few young Scots wanting to become cannon fodder for a foreign government and monarch. :ok:

aye great idea.  let's run down our defences..

The UK government have been doing that for 25+ years.

How many times have I read the words or heard a newscaster say the words, "MOD cuts".

Ditto Police and Customs & Excise.

That would tend to suggest that he's not planning any sort of comeback, I couldn't see him attempting this outwith the North East, where he has a personal vote and a base of support.
