We should all four nations follow pm

I believe for clarity that all 4 nations should have the same approach. It’s never been clear and this is confusing for all. I think that our PM has the responsibility to ensure that under UK we all follow the same guidelines?

Why the contribution is important

It’s important for safety and to ensure that we all Understand the same guidelines.

    No, the countries are at different stages and the UK government is too hazy on its instructions. FM is clear and explicit as also appear to be Welsh and NI.

    Couldn’t agree more. Despite what Nicola says - Boris Johnson is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, not just England, whether she likes it or not. His process is based on the Science, which she herself has stated is the same in Scotland, and backed up by data and figures. His release from the lockdown measured is controlled, in line with other countries, and is the only real way to avoid complete manic confusion and allow the economy to gradually recover. Peoples jobs, livelihoods and wellbeing are at stake - it’s absolutely no time to play politics.

    I disagree. There is so much diversity with in Scotland that it is difficult to have a single approach for this country and move at the speed of our needs. To have a single UK approach would mean that we would not have a satisfactory plan for most people. The confusion problem seems to be that the UK prime minister is talking for England and that is being broadcast to the other three nations. Perhaps it would be better to have daily updates only from the devolved 1st minister of each nation.

    Although we went into lockdown with the rest of the UK, the data shows that the virus hit Scotland later than England so it makes sense to ease lockdown measures later too (unless the data proves otherwise).

    It's not "playing politics," the stages of the virus are different. The only people playing politics here are those who accuse the devolved countries of using this for their own benefit. Boris Johnson's policies not only do not make sense for Scotland, they just don't make sense.

    After last night's 'address', I'm more than happy to have the clarity of message from Nicola Sturgeon, as opposed to the confused messages coming from Downing Street. It's actually more like a 3-nation approach, with England as the outlier.
