Would it surprise you he rode a Brompton?

 

He must live near me as I've seen him a couple of times on it.

Yep that bike sums peston up, a bike thats the absolute minimal of function for what a bikes for but high on the poseur scale. I bet he wears a 12 foot stripey scarf whilst riding it and some books strapped together with a belt. Not that any of thats important  its his life he should do what he feels comfortable but his job puts him on a platform. He's been picked by us all to win a bike race and has turned up on the day with a fucking Brompton, he's not arsed about winning just representing his style, take him twice as long to finish the race just like it takes him twice as long to ask a question. Id rather someone else took his place.

If The Joker ran for public office on a manifesto of saving society by putting a bullet in everyone over 70, and redistributing their houses and wealth...how many votes do you think he'd get?  Apart from Toby Young's?

No-one is taking his place. He has been selected precisely because he's a weird, waffling twat who is delighted with his celebrity status. Same with Laura Kuenssberg. 

 

If they were any good at their jobs they wouldn't have them.

If I am right, Scotland are free to make a full lockdown decision because ultimately they don't pay for it. That's not me saying I don't agree with the lockdown, I do. There's an argument that free from the thoughts of cost you can do what is best for your people. 

 

What it looks like Johnson is going to announce is Tier 5, just calling it tier 4 because apparently it matters somehow. 

 

I am sure that within a week or less Johnson will have flip flopped again and we'll be in full lockdown. 

 

If Peston's tweet is correct then I don't need to watch Johnson at 8pm, I'm an adult and I get that further measures are necessary. But I don't think it goes far enough.

Please explain how they do not pay for it. As far as I am aware Scots pay income tax , vat , corporation tax , inheritance tax and a plethora of others. 

What an imbecilic statement.

The wife is a primary teacher. Loads of stories today of kids being sent in while they're waiting on test results (today and before Christmas), or people in their households being positive but sending the kids into school, or isolation periods being cut down for sleep overs with their mates.

 

Looks like we got the virus from one of two kids in her class pre-Christmas - in one case the kid was sick but the parents refused a test (waited til school has broken up to get the positive), and another was waiting on a test result but was sent in anyway. 

 

I know the government are a shambles, but people aren't helping themselves. Absolutely selfish pricks.

 

Also, parents letting the school know today that if there is a lockdown they're going to send their kids in anyway.

 

I wonder why some people have children.

Rather than being a rude cunt, please explain it for me please. If Scotland decided to go into full lockdown for a month and none of the rest of the UK did, then who would end up paying for this, would it be divided between everyone? 

 

I wasn't having a dig at the Scots, I don't fully understand the formula and I await your explanation so I can. 

 

 

 

Pressed on whether the UK Government would pay for Scotland to go it alone, he said: “That’s not something that has occurred.

"You know how funding to Scotland works, and I’m not aware of any changes to that."

It came as independent forecaster the Scottish Fiscal Commission pointed out SNP ministers are unable to borrow more cash for Covid-19 measures under strict fiscal rules.

As well as the UK funding for the job retention scheme, Holyrood has so far received around £3.5 billion from the UK Government for business support measures such as grants, the SFC said.

 

An update from the SFC said today: “The UK Government has announced plans to spend an additional £86 billion in 2020-21, to combat the effects of COVID-19.

"The Scottish Government is expected to receive £3.5 billion in consequentials.

“The fiscal responses required by both Governments are highly uncertain as the duration and scale of the response to COVID-19 is unclear.”

It said the cash flowing north from the UK Government - known as Barnett consequentials - “could therefore change significantly”.

 

And it warned: “With uncertainty about the level of funding received from the UK Government as well as the level of spending required in Scotland, it may be difficult for the Scottish Government to balance spending against available funding within the financial year.”

On borrowing extra cash, it warned: “The Scottish Government cannot borrow to fund any additional COVID-19 related spending.

“The fiscal framework allows the Scottish Government limited borrowing powers which can be used to fund capital spending and to mitigate the effects of forecast error for the devolved taxes and social security benefits.”

Ms Sturgeon was asked repeatedly today if the Scottish Government had spoken to the UK Government about the financial implications of Scotland easing restrictions at a different pace.

 

Pressed on whether there had been specific discussions about financial support if Scotland went its own way, she told a daily media briefing: "These discussions are ongoing all of the time and they will touch on a lot of different issues.

 

"The Finance Secretary here talks about the economic interventions all of the time, but we haven't got to a position yet where - it wouldn't be a meaningful discussion for me to phone up the Chancellor and say, 'Hypothetically, if something that we haven't decided yet and therefore don't know the detail of was to happen, what would you do?'

"In a situation like this, in the kind of real world we're dealing in, that's not helpful or meaningful for anybody.

"So we have to work our way through these things in a proper, orderly way."

 

 

And I am not sure I agree with the following but maybe you can go and insult them. 

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2020/10/19/scotland-wales-should-pay-lockdowns/

 

Powers have been handed down to Belfast, Cardiff and Edinburgh and they are entitled to use them as they see fit. But there should surely be one condition: they should pay for the consequences.

Lockdown might or might not be an effective way of fighting Covid-19, we can argue about that. However, one point is surely clear: it is shockingly expensive. The UK suffered a 20pc hit to the economy in the second quarter, the toughest period of lockdown.

 

England will end up having to pay the bill for policies over which it has no control, and that it is not following itself. If Wales and Scotland want a more draconian lockdown that is up to them. But they should also be willing to shoulder the higher taxes and debts that will come with it.

We already have devolved tax powers for the regional assemblies, and in the wake of Covid-19 the time has surely come to increase those.

If I lived in London I'd likely not be able to stop myself finding Young one night.  These cunts can't get away with this, hate speech mongers and though the subject changes the vitriol and bile is fucking off the scale.  They defy Darwinism, lucky cunts so far.

They’re in favour of a form of Darwinism, that’s why they’re like this.

 

They’re biological supremacists.

MP Margaret Ferrier charged in Scotland in connection to Covid breach

 

Scottish MP Margaret Ferrier has been arrested and charged in connection with coronavirus restrictions.

Police Scotland confirmed a 60-year-old woman has been charged with culpable and reckless conduct over an alleged breach of coronavirus regulations between September 26 and 29 2020.

A spokesperson for the force said: 'We can confirm that officers today arrested and charged a 60-year-old woman in connection with alleged culpable and reckless conduct.

 

'This follows a thorough investigation by Police Scotland into an alleged breach of coronavirus regulations between 26 and 29 September 2020.

'A report will be sent to the procurator fiscal and we are unable to comment further.'

 

Ms Ferrier, 60, sparked outrage in October after admitting she had travelled by train from her constituency near Glasgow to London while awaiting the results of a Covid test at the end of September.

She spoke in the Commons that night and then travelled back to Scotland the following day after being told the test was positive.

 

The Metropolitan Police said in October that because Ms Ferrier took a coronavirus test on September 26 - and travelled to London two days later - she could not face action under the Health Protection Regulations 2020, because they only came into effect on September 29.

Despite facing pressure to resign her seat, Ms Ferrier is now an independent MP for Rutherglen and Hamilton West.

Rumours circulating from normally reliable sources that it's lock down for the school half term, mid feb, whilst they try to vaccinate a million and a half of the most vulnerable.

 

From tomorrow lunchtime.

 

Bold if true.

1.5m in 6 weeks.....be about right for these useless bastards.

 

It should be 24/7 utilising football grounds, and all big places and they should be looking to smash that 2m a week number that keeps being referenced.

    • Gini Wijnaldum has attracted further interest on the continent with Paris Saint Germain and Inter Milan reportedly very keen on signing the midfielder.   It is common knowledge that the Dutchman’s current contract expires in June, but to this point there has been no movement on a new deal leading to strong speculation that the very popular figure will be departing come the end of this campaign.   The most recent comment by either party came last month with Wijnaldum rather blunt about how things stand.   "There is no update yet. I also think I’m not the one who should give the update.   "The club should do that. So if there is an update, the club will give it."     The 30 year-old came very close to departing in the past off-season as new Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman had identified his countryman as a key part of his rebuilding plan, however Jurgen Klopp was able to hang to a key member of his squad.   And it is a good thing too as Wijnaldum has been at his consistent best and his durability has been a godsend for the manager in a squad wrecked by significant injuries.   He has made 37 appearances in all competitions and is set to lead the team in Jordan Henderson’s absence.   The Mirror ( via French publication Le Parisien) reports that  PSG have made it known that they are particularly interested in landing Wijnaldum on a free transfer while Inter Milan are monitoring the situation.   It is clear that if the Dutchman does depart Liverpool after five seasons and over 200 appearances, he will leave a sizable hole in the Liverpool midfield as well as his general impact in and around the squad.

    • Surprised the Brazilian PM didn't get involved to be honest. He's a massive twat and was fully expecting to make differenent rules for the National keeper. 
    • Still no official word on his injury after a week.  That makes me nervous.
    • I was a huge fan but he just cannot hack it unfortunately, as has been mentioned many times he might not fancy it or it could be too physical. I think it could be a psychological thing.
