Times Comment 26/5

There was a huge Lewis Capaldi concert in the new, now empty, spare Exhibition Centre in Aberdeen. I remember it being one of the last, but short, conversations I had with those beyond these 4 walls.

A slightly more subtle SNP puff piece

She was at home on a Saturday evening when she took a call with the results: of the eight tests, six were positive.

So roundabout March 12/13, ten days before Lockdown, testing at Care Homes was being done. But not, later, in the NHS “without performing any kind of risk assessment (Covid-19 testing)” when removing bed blockers. Someone must have known how much CV19 was in the NHS …

This was a sickening Dad having to make decisions about his family.

I am not privvy to the discussions twixt his Dad in Durham, him and the Police who his Dad called to discuss the matter. He drove, not stopping for petrol, so did his best not to spread the virus.

And its not some chap who emphasises the “importance of transparency” then makes videos private on YouTube
