I wonder how long before this company originally set up by the vaccines deployment minister gets a nice fat Govt contract 

 

FAMILY OF VACCINE MINISTER Sets Up Medical Company

The wife of Vaccine Deployment Minister Nadhim Zahawi is the owner and director of a newly-established medical company, Companies House records show.

The politician resigned his official role in the company in January 2018, after being appointed as an Education Minister, transferring his shares to Lana Saib. It is believed that Zahawi and Zahawi holds a property portfolio of at least £25 million.

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.

TLDR.

I like how he spelled out that the reason for closing school was due to the chance of mixing and spreading the virus between the kids, rather than the kids themselves getting seriously sick. 

 

Who knew this.

This.

I wasn't going to let my kids back this week anyway, because I actually know more about how viruses spread than the fucking government had told me for the past 9 fucking months.

So, what new information did the lying cunt get today to overturn his insistence on "get back to school" line?

 

How the fuck does he justify denying schools and parents the chance to plan properly for the closures?

 

Cunt.

The thing is, if there was a general election tomorrow people would still vote for them. It's astonishing.

Knew I should have got my hair cut today. Fuck sake.

 

I went nearly 6 months last time! Looked like Guy Fawkes initially, but then started to look like my Auntie which freaked me out. 

 

Tempted to do something mental this time and just shave the very top, front part of my head to look like Shakespeare?

He's not wrong, but I'd be disgusted in my daughter if that was my grandkid. 

 

Yeah just because it's not wrong, doesn't make it right.

 

Funny though, I guess.

 

Hope the kid embarrasses the fuck out of her one day too.
