Clarity on Scottish advice in other parts of UK

To be sure that the rest of the UK is clear on the difference between what's happening in Scotland v other UK nations. The PM should be outlining this in broadcasts

Why the contribution is important

Envisage chaos if others can travel to visit relatives/friends but we're not allowed.

    UK Prime Minister has caused so much confusion and needs to set out information clearly. Even presenters on TV confused by his message.
    First Minister in Scotland has been very clear that the only thing that has changed in Scotland is we can go outdoors more than once a day for physical activity such as walking etc. All other social distancing, staying at home unless going out for essentials etc. apply. We're at different stage of virus in Scotland compared to rest of UK and hopefully Scottish people will listen to Scottish Government advice as Scotland at different stage of virus than the rest of UK and more active in Scotland and deaths daily.

    There was some attempt at this last night when Nicola Sturgeon spoke after Boris' briefing. She said, for example, the driving to exercise did not apply to Scotland.

    However, the Welsh government seem to be very clear in their message to the rest of the UK & have gone further. The Welsh FM has said that anyone driving to Wales to the hills will be stopped, sent back home & fined.

    Agreed! There is a strongly marked difference in communications from Westminster and Holyrood, both on content and delivery. Having watched the Westminster broadcast last evening, I'm more concerned that ever.

    How about a specifically Scottish slogan?

    Perhaps too long for a bumper sticker.
