The sheer incompetence of the handling of covid has been staggering, and the Scottish government’s has been only marginally less bad than Westminster’s. If you’re going to have lockdowns (which you inevitably will, when the hospitals start overloading), at least start them quickly enough that they actually work.
Oh no. First, they agonise about the infection numbers. Then they schedule a debate for the following week. When the debate is held they decide on a date – another week for infection to spread. You’d never guess it was the fastest-spreading infection anyone has ever seen.
So now the NHS is shredded.
