Government furlough and only supporting UK when England is in lockdown will be a defining moment in the death of the 'Union of equals'.

Hallelujah. The best thing for an independent Scotland is a Tory Government in Westminster.

Here comes the full lockdown, even though numbers are dropping she can't help but turn it into political point scoring.

You're already going in to lockdown on Thursday anyway.

Yup. Fucking disgraceful. How anyone can support that, I don't know.

If he does that he's just made a definitive case for independence. Will be an interesting 24 hours

She just said it's vital that nobody travels into an area with a different level.

But I won't make it mandatory that the weegies don't travel and spread it.

The furlough scheme is Countrywide, people in Scotland will still be benefiting from it. If she wasn't being awkward with a need to be different we'd be following England in the first place.

Good point just being made, she always said she would follow the science when making decisions, looks like she's now following the money. :)

Thinks her levels are great but wants to retain flexibility in changing them.

Itching to lockdown.

Weegies aren't allowed to travel out with their health board whilst in tier 3. Unless for work.

They have been requested.

She refuses to make it mandatory

The case for the union hugely compromised if that’s the case. If the treasury is only extending furlough based upon the situation in England then by definition it’s fucked. I don’t know how any reasonable person could legitimately support it after this blatant evidence of favouritism towards the southern guffy.

Exactly. It's not only unfair on the devolved Governments but it completely alienates the North of England, who were desperately trying to secure better funding when being moved to tier 3.

The union is only important to Westminster when Scotland seek independence. Ask yourself why?

She's 100% locking us down 

I have been very vocal about my dissatisfaction for sturgeon and Scottish government throughout this process but her hand is being forced on this and it’s a fucking horrible position for her to be in. Absolutely fuck the U.K. government if they pull a stunt like this.

Our numbers were on a downward trajectory when England announced lockdown so why would we do the same?

Exactly. 

As you said, you've been vocal about her but you can see this is wrong. 

Proves the likes of Dayts just go against everything she does for some attention on a forum. Embarrassing.

Scotland has a low prevalence generally of covid at the moment so this lockdown, if it happens, could go someway in driving the levels so low that we will come out the other end more quickly.

So you want us to be shutdown even though covid infections are low Here?

I don't but if it's now or never (furlough only being in place while England is in lockdown), then it makes sense to do it IMO.

Totally agree. Farcical that they can't just give her a realistic budget to use as and when she needs it. I don't think we'll lock down, she has to give these levels a chance or the whole thing is totally fucked.

No of course it’s not what I want. What I want is irrelevant though and I’m trying to see things from a bigger picture perspective.

Yeah. As I said previously, it appears that they’re forcing Scotland’s hand with this.

No person of reason and sound mind can. Stonehaven people, racists and thick cunts do because they're not reasonable.
