That Murdo Fraser column just confirms what we already know - the Tories in Scotland exist simply to solidify a core vote that they hope will ensure a No vote in any subsequent referendum. There is zero interest in actually governing or actively improving the country.
Rules in Scotland from Monday: ‘Vertical dancing’ is okay ‘Vertical drinking’ not allowed Masks required on a dance floor, but “tricky” so maybe not required Masks required for shops, church, transport, school Crowds limited to 5k outdoors, except some that are not https://twitter.com/peteradamsmith/status/1422854625355522049 …
We can laugh about ‘Back door Bunter’ etc’ but in all seriousness, this snub is a terrible image for a UK govt who claim they see Scotland as a valued & equal part of the union. Headlines we are seeing this morning are a gift to Scottish Independence.
Since I'm in Scotland, I just popped into a butcher's shop in Fife. The butcher said "are you James Melville off Twitter?" I said "I may be a cunt, but I'm not THAT bad" Very discombobulating.

@HumzaYousaf, who previously went viral for complaining about too many whites in Scottish parliament, reported a nursery to authorities for alleged white supremacy.

Rest of the world watching closely: ‘In Scotland, estimated that 92.5% of adults would have tested positive for antibodies against SARS-CoV-2 on a blood test in the week beginning 12 July 2021’- is this enough to dampen transmission & protect under 12s from infection? Under 18s?
For the first time in my life I am ashamed to be living in Scotland. We have reached an all time low that we have allowed SNP to perpetuate their brand of politics and Scotland's Press and Media do not take them to task for their many failures. Shame on them. Cowards.
Con merchant extraordinaire: From education, drug & carehome Covid deaths, new hospitals, CalMac ferry & BiFab fiascos, missing £600000 & squandering most of the 30% extra money (Barnett) for public services (compared to England) on freebie bribes - welcome to the new Scotland! pic.twitter.com/NtmeiUfDIF
Boris Johnson popped in to Scotland and everyone there said “aren’t you that gobshite from London who is ruining everything?” That sort of thing is happening a lot now. It’s both brilliant and heartwarming.
Q: Why did the chicken cross the road? A: To avoid meeting the First Minister of Scotland.
