Aye Right Radio videocast 259 podcast 16 S3. World Worst Death Rate

World Worst Death Rate  

  • The MSM (NB. BBC & SKY & foreign owned press) gets roasted for failing to alert  the UK public in this most dangerous state in the pandemic…The UK has the highest death rate in the world and our media has let us all down by not headlining this so that we can all take extra care…
  • The MSM focus on the international vaccination race is assessed…
  • We then ask why the BBC Radio Scotland Kaye Adams show shut down discussion of the Israel vaccination programme when Palestinians were mentioned…
  • In a blog by BarrheadBoy the issue of turning the May Holyrood election into a plebiscitary one (for or against independence) gets heated…
  • We applaud the letter by Joanna Cherry challenging an article by Fintan O’Toole, both published in the Irish Times, about the SNP founders ant-fascist credentials and the omission of Alex Salmond from the SNP luminaries.

  • The Covid briefing report is upbeat.  Current figures for Scotland have plateaued.  Future lockdown rules could include closing food take-aways plus click and collect.  ‘Stay at Home and don’t go out to socialise’ is the message from the FM.  People are also going out to ‘promenade’ says Stewart.
