Keep up with the Scottish news. I like it in the way I liked hearing that when Monty arrived in North Africa in WW2, he found that the conscripted officers treated orders as the basis for an open discussion, rather than doing their duty and carrying them out.

Not being snide. Scotland has hope even if some of the most vocal are sometimes dour

It has nothing to do with the most vocal being dour, (in your opinion at least). Its the ruling political party using this 'pandemic' as a Political Tool, weaponising it for their own ends at the cost of the Scottish population.

Yes. The impression from south of the border, is that the SNP are sniping and gorilla fighting amongst themselves and the usual secondary factions, rather than conducting trad trench warfare. And all the while, trying to keep the population united on the home front - as you put it - for their own ends.

Whilst the smoke and mirrors serve as distractions (RT-sponsered ex-banker Alex Salmon), I'm just saying there is politics and those who play at politics  - in my humble opinion - and people's lives will have something to say about that sooner or later.

Reminds me of when you’re really young and you hear talk of Guérilla warfare on the news, and you think they’re talking about Gorilla warfare, which sounds epic.

I remember running into the garden to tell my mum that a gang of gorillas had broken through the fence between Israel and Palestine!  Obvs Palestine was  a haven for gorillas.
