Start being realistic, you're creating a generation of young people who resent you.

Allow people to function as they rightfuly wish by dissolving restrictions. Improve Covid reports, including not just cases and deaths, but also which cases are severe, moderate, and mild, so that people can be more informed to make their own decisions and have control over their own lives again. Stop plunging young people into pits of depression, anxiety and various other mental health problems, you are effectively losing future votes as many young people (the ones who will survive the current suicide epidemic that this government has created) will see that the government is at fault for this. If the government cared about suicide rates as much as they care about Covid, which is currently killing much less people, there would be nets outside every window in Scotland, and mental health therapy would be mandatory. If any new restrictions should be introduced they should be democratically voted on, like the democracy we have been promised but have failed to receive. The governments needs to divert it's attention to the outlet of more focused and detailed information, rather than the inlet of new restrictions.

Why the contribution is important

Suicide deaths are through the roof, lockdowns and restrictions have destroyed more lives and careers than they are designed to protect. I wouldn't ever in a million years expected such continued irony despite the absolutely obvious. I can guarantee that if the information was that covid deaths were skyrocketing again, killing left right and centre, the vast majority of people wouldn't leave their homes, it's common sense. Allow people the right to think for themselves again.

    This government has done nothing but consider the needs of young people at the expense of every other age group. They have prioritised schools and universities, they have prioritised employment measure for this group. They constantly talk about the needs of the young. If anyone is entitled to resent this government it is not the young, it is the other demographics who are being ignored and left unsupported.

    Totally agree that young people have been totally forgotten. They are missing out on once in a lifetime events - you can’t go back and repeat your P7 or S6. My teenage daughter has complied with the rules for months and all that has happened is that she has had more taken from her. No sport, no music, very little social interaction. This could have a profound long term effect. Why are young healthy people valued less than people at risk of Covid? It shouldn’t be one group making all the sacrifices.
