Corona virus on its own thread.

I don't think its the BBC. Sort of.

The UK government put their fake figures out and the media, quite rightly in my opinion, take and compare them with other countries and not just the devolved nations. Each outlet puts on its own slant.

I can understand that during campaigning all political parties are a bit economical with the truth shall we say but for the most part HM Governments have been fair when publishing numbers to the point of being anal about getting them as accurate as possible. That went for folk I knew in England as well. Of course there were some numbers just didn't get published! It seems those days of being honest and impartial have gone, in London anyway.

What annoys me is the BBC have set themselves up as Lord of the Fact Checker, a paragon of even handedness, but constantly allow government misinformation to be spouted across their whole platform. He who pays the piper and all that.
They clearly went for volume in England ahead of doing the hard yards in care homes per JCVI recommendations, despite every care home jag saving 8 times as many lives as over 80s in the community. And then that slimy prick Gove made political capital out of the numbers and making the faux offer to help Scotland with the rollout. And now Scotland is racing ahead but it's all gone quiet on comparisons (as it should be, it's not a race ffs).

This is where I think we now fundamentally differ from English people. I certainly wouldn't express the sentiments seen earlier in the thread about English people being enemies. However it's clear from polling that what the Tories offer is what they want. So we can no longer just call this a Westminster problem, it's a fundamental difference between the Scottish and English populace. Hence I'm reluctantly in the independence camp.

What an utter penis of a man . Kind of stuff you'd hear an edl supporter say about the krauts and 2 world wars everyone hates them. Hate filled sad wee man I'd swap you for millions of good English people from Liverpool to Hackney. My kids are half English are they half hated around the world, what side do they pick the mungrals
You liken me to an EDL member and in doing so use the term ‘krauts’ to describe German people? Amazing. I’ve been to many countries and there’s only one where I’ve been racially abused and treated as an inferior for being Scottish. Care to guess where? Still wondering why I’m hate filled?

In all honesty you appear to be displaying naked racism. In my opinion.

Exactly, my grandad was English..though he died when I was youn, but hating English would include some of my ancestors I never knew. One of my daughter in law is English so I would be hating my grandchildren. Half of us had we lived during the Jacobite period would be fighting for the royalists if we weren't RC. We have more in common with English than most of the rest of Europe. I like the rivalry but I have no hatred. I have little time for certain English like I have little time for most Huns, Celtic, hearts supporters etc etc That said I have had a few good mates who have supported these teams. Too much hatred in the world without people even knowing why they hate

still think it strange that we get tested every week at work yet have to wear masks everywhere. Yet footballers can hug after a goal, rugby players can join in a scrum. Not surprised there is apathy out there

The 7 day average of positive cases in West Lothian has more than doubled in a week. I believe it was originally linked to Addiewell prison but it looks like there's high rates across the south of the county now. 6 days ago West Lothian was 97% of the Scottish average, now it's 202%.

Seems its gone crazy again? As an aside as one of those who live in the south of West lothian, my appointment for the jag came through today.

If you take a look at the cases by neighbourhood on there it looks pretty bad around Whitburn and Blackburn (plus Breich Valley which I believe includes Addiewell). Not so bad across Livi way and fairly low in the north. I'm going to put a roadblock at Dechmont to keep youse Southern clarts oot!

Good to hear about the jag.

Vaccination chart on there shows some pretty low figures for the Lothians / Edinburgh compared to everywhere else.

I follow the same dashboard daily, my area has been 0-2 for over a month, it was up past 20 when Almondvale shopping, McArthur Glen and the boozers were open. The areas you mention not only have a tin pail but a number of care homes and inbred huns. :3:

On the jag, I am in my mid 50's so they are fair getting through them.
