Closet Republican

  • It’s the eve of Vaccination Day, the first day of the end of the pandemic (we hope), and the Scottish Government top team appeared at today’s Covid press briefing. The First Minister, the Health Secretary and the Chief Medical Officer radiated a Xmas Eve spirit of expectation. 
  • The press wanted early details of any changes to the tiers of Covid restrictions and got none plus more on the roll-out of the vaccination programme, which they got. 
  • Our papers review include Stephen Paton in the National, James Foley in the Source, Stuart Campbell in Wings and Ruth Wishart in the National.

  • Taxi for Jimmy
  • Care Homes, Schools and Xmas were the hacks obsessions today at the Covid Briefing. ‘I’m not going to speculate’ ‘I’m not going to comment on an email I haven’t read’ said the FM, as the hyenas (sorry cream of the Scottish press) attempted to put words in her mouth.
  • The suicide of Labour in Scotland gets discussed plus an excellent Ruth Wishart article roasting the Unionists.

Future Shape of Scotland

A short press briefing had hacks trolling for headlines.

‘Your F.A.C.T.S message is too complex” says Jack Frost. ‘Only coz you lot aren’t doing your job’ says the FM. ‘Your stuck with a failed UK test system aren’t you?’ says Conor Matchet. ‘Are you going to shut the schools?’ ‘Will the Police get info about people self isolationing.

Then we follow with a bad tempered ‘debate’ about Andrew Wilson, Ben Wray, Mike Small, George Kerevan and Ruth Wishart about what an Indy Scotland could/should be like.

New BBC Politics Show – Coronavirus Update

The new BBC SNPBaad show launched with a glitch. Watching on BBC Scotland, the only place to see the entire briefing, we missed the awkward contribution from DRoss, broadcast only on BBC 1 Scotland, who clearly hadn’t seen or heard the FM live. After checking the recording it was pity time for Douglas. Now that the briefing is inside a politics show there is nothing to stop the FM ‘being political’. Thanks BBC.

The important Covid briefing alerted us to new restrictions/measures to be announced within 48 hours by the FM.

We cover Stuart Campbell’s accusation of Dani Garavelli lying in her Sunday article as she claimed Alex Salmond had tried to stop vital documents being revealed.

Ruth Wishart tells the young to back Indy to secure the freedoms her/our generation enjoyed.

Dr Elliot Bulmer suggests a constitutional solution to the independence referendum impasse.
