A ScotGov Minister says taking drugs is not inherently dangerous…it’s only when those drugs are illegal that they become dangerous, because you can’t get them safely. *cough *splutter WTF Oh, the solution to highest drug death rate is an orderly queue for smack & crystal methpic.twitter.com/BrwpHbuJcb
a small item of PPE I ordered for our business in 2019 pre-pandemic cost £40. I’ve just clicked reorder from our business account from the same supplier and the same item now costs £110. That’s just one particular item of PPE. I’m glad we don’t need the full regalia. pic.twitter.com/AsMoe8gwgp
I've been a puppet, a pauper, a pirate, a poet, a pawn & a king I've been up & down and over & out, & I know one thing Each time I find myself flat on my face, I pick myself up & get back in the race That's life. Yep, that’s life. But a country rotting under SNP is a disgracepic.twitter.com/K7O74Aknm5
Hope members of EIS teaching union aren’t meeting up in the pub for drinks after work, going out for a meal, clubbing at the weekend or attending large gatherings WITHOUT THEIR PRECIOUS MASKS. Meanwhile kids in school are masked up. Masks that don’t stop covid. Educate with fear.pic.twitter.com/RJnThUfKI0
Anyone interested cd do worse than read in full the minutes, then the advice. Suggests to me it's untenable for ministers to keep masks on kids in classrooms for much longer (matter of weeks). Tho if rates climb v high, they cd fall back on that. Links to follow:
As a parent of an S1 pupil - I would be intrigued to understand the science that means covid is clever enough not to circulate at indoor parliamentary events but will at indoor education establishments
Seven persistent myths about Covid and lockdowns in the UK / England. I thought I would put one thread together on what I think are 7 myths that continue to be propagated - mainly by those who, although well-intentioned, always assume that more restrictions are the answer.
I find it deeply concerning an elected politician would tweet such inflammatory, ill considered rhetoric at any time, let alone at the moment.
This is a real problem. Groups like
@ALLIANCELGB and @ForwomenScot are being branded “hate groups”. A hate group is one which invites violence or hate, not one which merely espouses views with which you disagree. If we denigrate those who disagree with us, we denigrate debate.https://twitter.com/belstaffie/status/1450837581759922177 …
Bully tactics: 1 - fear - to scare you 2 - force - if scaring you doesn’t work 3 - family & friends - used against you If that bully is the government, & the first 3 don’t work, then 4 - they’ll criminalise you If the government’s plan A,B,C were sound, it wouldn’t need 1 - 4pic.twitter.com/DwC6GCidVW
I’m sorry to all those who want to wear a mask. I don’t mind if you do, & I’m sorry if I’ve made fun of it. I will not be wearing a mask everywhere unless the government criminalises me for not doing so. I’m not wearing one. You can wear one if you like, but don’t make me wear it
If I don’t watch Question Time* does it even exist * I stopped watching QT quite a while ago & feel all the better for it.
I don’t drink - close the pubs I don’t have hair - I’m bald - close the hairdressers I shop online - close the shops Shut everything. Bring the country to its knees. Unleash fear factor. You can have the dust that is left. When that election comes around again, I’ll be waitingpic.twitter.com/yomyZTFpkn
