UK government - Too little too late

We need the Scottish Government to take full control in handling the crisis here in Scotland. The UK government have made a ‘pigs ear’of the whole situation,

Why the contribution is important

We need to take total control of the crisis, not Westminster.

    I have to agree, especially when I heard of over 65's with symptoms of shortness of breath, being referred to their local UK Gov hub by GP , but were refused a test and sent home. I have heard of two separate people this happened to within the last couple of days-one in Perth and one in Glasgow. The Govuk sites seem to be just for show. Or are they just for early symptoms? (up to five days suggested on gov scot website).

    I don't think Scotland is doing better than any other administration. Scotland is making as many bad calls as Westminster and as nobody has ever been in this situation before there is a lot of muddling through from all sides with no real forward plan and changes on a daily basis occurring. It's all a bit of a shambles really but if Scotland are saying that we are in a different stage to the rest of the UK then they are surely making the case for regional unlocking of restrictions as The Borders must be vastly different from The Highlands. Just wish anybody would sound as if they knew what they were doing and I don't have much confidence that they do in Scotland or in Westminster.

    Regret Scotland has also made mistakes, e.g. slow to close pubs and huge international events - BUT THAT IS HISTORY. Also furious that Scotland is behind even England on TTIS. LEARN AND IMPROVE! This is WAR! But there should still be scope for local decision making, provided these decisions are sound and do not only come from the Holyrood Bubble. Regret that so far little evidence of this.
