No surprise she'd rather roll out a blanket lockdown than hit Glasgow with one

Yep, makes zero sense.

She flapped just there when the reporter asked her why we're not just having the same rules as England, could hear her lip wibbling. She'll go out of her way tomorrow to be stricter here than England. It's a sham waiting till tomorrow to announce anyway, the licensed trade have already been told of the changes coming in.

So numbers up here at low again (1 here yesterday was it?) and she's away to cut who you can see rather than just in Glasgow and the surrounding areas?

We all remember his "performance" on Wogan but that was what, 35+ years ago? He made himself look ridiculous, not least from his choice of shell suits in shades of turquoise. But even a mad cunt isn't going to be necessarily wrong on everything. I can't warm to the man but there is absolutely no doubt that he foresaw certain parts of our future long before each and every one of us.

The fact that he's had Brian Rose and London Real also prevented from social media and subject to censorship is a good indicator to me that freedom of speech is a historic concept and that what he's got to say, certain powerful lobbies don't want us to hear.

Those who seek to dismiss him as a possible source of information are those who scream "conspiracy theorist", for reasons known. The label is intended to discredit and to shut down discussion.

If he is the nutter many believe, let him spout shite and make a fool of himself.

Banning him and his cronies gives credence to what they say, not least of all when some (certainly not all) of what he says comes true.

I didn’t see any evidence of Nicola flapping at all. She can handle the daft questions that the journos come up with quite comfortably.

She made an excellent point about the media creation of ‚Äėconfusion‚Äô with different approaches being taken between the devolved parts of the UK.

It’s this simple, Q:What part of the UK are you in? A: Scotland.

Great, then the rules that apply in Scotland apply to you.

No confusion as peddled  by the media.

Haha fucking hell. What utter nonsense. Even you can't actually believe what you type. She was clear and concise, as she usually is.

The questions are quite poor in general but times/telegraph always seem to get on her nerves I've noticed.

Much of what he foresaw in the 90's has already "come true". It's already happened. Other stuff he's been saying for years is here now. If some are saying that he is a "nutter" then they will presumably have heard what he's been saying and rejected it... but for the fact that they haven't. They simply swallowed the soundbites out of context e.g. lizard people, son of God and are unable to produce a coherent argument (far less evidence) to reject something that they've not even listened to in the first place.

One of the biggest reasons why he will never be understood by the majority is that he believes in concepts that they can never understand. As I said, I can't warm to him personally (for one or two specific reasons) but I completely share his recognition of the concept that he calls "infinite consciousness", which connects with what I first read in eastern philosophies and religions, the old mind, body, soul stuff, since added to with my learning of yin and yang, karma, buddhist including Zen teachings, the Bhagavad Gita, the three gunas etc. etc. and latterly Sheldrake's Morphic Resonance.

The bottom line is that I don't have any answers to the biggest questions but I'm quite comfortable that I don't fucking know. Like Karen Dunbar however, I can smell shite and between EVERY world major religion and EVERY government - the tools and the instruments which are deployed to control and exploit us - the smell is pungent and toxic. It's ok to not have all the answers. It's not ok to not be asking the right questions and it's worse to be so lazy that we believe what we are told, therefore negating the process of thinking for ourselves.

We share a large land border with them and we're a small nation, the journalist mentioned that, we should have the same general rules, this shouldn't be devolved, the government should be in charge. She's making it political, dangerous game to play.

If she gets rattled with those questions just wait till she has to face the questions posed when the truth is outed at the Salmond enquiry. They're still playing hide the paperwork.

I never saw it today but it is utterly fucking ridiculous that we are allowed different amounts of folk in households (in was good way for once)compared to England and Wales also different.

Who makes this shit up.

It's not the illogical nature of some of these things that bugs me, it's the fact we are letting them impose them on us with no questions asked. No debates, no votes, it's crazy. 

We don't let the police enter someone's house without a warrant if they think they are a murderer or sex offender but we have decided its OK for them to do it if they think someone is having a few mates round for a drink. 

We've fucked up massively here.

Aye lets allow the average mouthbreather vote on a science based issue, these are people that voted for something because of a catchy slogan and a blue passport.

You missed his whole point. Doesn't make you a bad person, just someone who focused on one word, applied it in your own mind completely out of context and by doing so, missed the whole point.

The Coronavirus Act was voted in parliament back in March, the Scottish bill was passed in April (80 for, 0 against).

I think the bigger issue that he's referring to, the same argument that Peter Hitchens has been consistent in for six months now, is that the measures being implemented are disproportionate to the threat.

Yes there is covering legislation regarding emergency police powers but we the people are accepting wholesale crashing of our economies, wealth reduction, sporadic lockdowns, wearing masks etc. etc. and the forerunner for what may or not become the biggest stripping of basic human rights ever.

Edit: not to mention the destroying of social interaction, the turning of our pubs into a sterile experiences and everything else that we need to function as healthy societies. So many old folk have been sacrificed more by the neglect of existing conditions and emergency panic measures than the virus and forced them to die alone.

When people vote blindly because all they care about is independence it means we don't have a balance in the assembly, a strong opposition is important in any democracy or you end up with a dictatorship, sadly that's where we're at right now. Laws on freedom and peoples rights should always be debated, not handed out in a propaganda speech.

Yeah, a lot of this has become political with folk.  Making it a binary issue. 

Blindly backing Sturgeon on all decisions because of political leanings rather than challenging the logic of specific actions. 

And accusing people who disagree with anything she does as being Tory. 

And the reverse at the other end of the spectrum.

Jeez, there's hope for you dayts! If you approved of one thing I've said, it proves that you're not so close-minded to tar every action of someone you don't like or agree with¬†with the same brush of condemnation. One day you might see something positive in what nippie sweetie looks-like-a-dyke-but-isna (allegedly married, to a confirmed wet blanket) says or does. It might be a stretch for you to admit any wrongdoing by¬†the Tories though ūüėČ

I've not seen anyone on here blindly backing all decisions tbh. I've seen plenty blindly criticising them though. Political partisans are generally best ignored. 

Agree with the rest though.

I wasnt specifically pointing the finger at anyone on here. It was more an observation on general conversations outwith the bubble that is the hat.
