    Is the SG saying that the WMG are claiming that the furlough scheme, funded by all UK tax payers, can only be accessed by the other devolved governments during the time that its deemed most required in England and not when it's most required in each nation ? If so that is bonkers .

  5. Never mind football C19 protocols, the two idiots were at a house party which is way worse than anything football related yet we hear nothing but praise for Rangers response to it ! No suggestion that any of our players have done anything like that yet both us and Killie are up on a breach of C19 protocols charge. Swift response or not Rangers should be dealt with likewise. The only reason those guys didn't mix with the rest of their squad today was the fact they had a day off. If it hadn't been I'm quite sure they would have trained as normal before this all broke.

    No, clear spin. Her point was very clear and justified. If the Tory government refuse to extend furlough when needed by any part of the country when London doesn't need it, a decision will have to be made that balances financial support for people/ businesses and suppresses the virus in the hope a lockdown isn't needed at a time when the Tory government may not give the same financial support (if London doesn't need to lockdown.) These conversations are needing to happen because it is clear the government are only prioritising London and care little about the rest of the UK.

    I think it's a mistake that the government are suggesting that if any of the other home countries don't have lockdown at the same time as England they won't get the same furlough funding. The other nations, rightly or wrongly, are making decision they feel are right for their country, they shouldn't be blackmailed into following England or having to carry the financial burden alone if they don't.

    Suicide rate are a very erratic measure, using month on month or week on week comparisions can be misleading. If you look at the duration of the entire pandemic there have been periods where the rate is highter than the 5 year average and periods when it has been lower.

    Without disagreeing with the sentiment re the woman married to the UK's Anti-Corruption Champion (you really couldnae make this up), you're saying it will cost Scotland 9% of £12bn for f**k all benefit? And people wonder why we want out...

    Yeah, this is pretty stupid from the Westminster government. When Wales asked for it, they said no but all of a sudden when England needed it, it was given. That's how it will be perceived. It's as though they want Scottish independence to become a formality. Either that or they have absolutely zero feel for strategy. ETA. Just read on the BBC that Johson has now said it will be available as and when lockdowns happen elsewhere in the UK but it's not clear on what timescales he's talking about for introducing the lockdown, what scale of support will be made available and what happens if we have a 3 month lockdown. He just can't be trusted on anything.

  13. In Ayrshire the measures actually did relax a bit today with the tier system. Restaurants and pubs that serve food reopened here albeit they are prohibited to sell booze. It's still early days but, as you said, the numbers are leveling out, maybe the irresponsible clots are taking heed? Maybe I was right laughing at the massive numbers quoted last week. PS The dimwit Bazil is on ignore, he would give an asprin a headache. PPS October had a total of 4,428, an average of 142. To reach, lets use the lowest of the ludicrous numbers quoted last week, of 80,000 that would need 441 EVERY day between now and then. I said last week and I'll reiterate, snowballs in hell chance. This is before the other numbers of 100,000 and 120,000.

    I have heard anecdotal evidence that suicides are a "major concern," however the data that I have access to does not support an increase. (This is provisional and subject to revision). Also attempts may be up with translating into actual deaths. It bears watching, but there is as yet no evidence I've seen of this spike.

    Just seen a small local business, shit scared Scotland goes into a lockdown just when it's their busiest time of the year, leading up to Christmas. They are trying to show all their items, mainly cards etc, online to allow people to choose and they will deliver. IF Scotland is thinking about it, and I don't believe it's necessary, they better hurry up, business's are on the edge as it is.

    I’d checked online a few months ago for the suicide rate after watching an article which stated (but wasn’t confirmed at the time) that there had been 1000 suicides in August throughout England and Wales. The figures for the previous year are announced in June (no idea why that gap is)

    Absolutely, but I have heard some right wing comentators using suice rates to do exactly that, even though there is only at best weak evidence that this is the case. For long periods of the lock down rates appear to have been lower than normal. Again my data is provisional and I have yet to see any that supports the "everyone is killing themselves," message

    I'm lucky enough to be in Lanzarote at the moment and face mask need to be worn at all time outdoors. Only seen 2 people not wearing them and 1 was a cop. Brutal to wear in the hot weather since breathing out is making my sunglasses steam up [emoji41] but it does seem to help as the level of the virus is low on the island. Wouldn't surprise me if the wearing of mask outdoors is brought in by our or the uk gov.

    Seven day death averages, end of the week. w/e 1st November 260 (46% increase) w/e 25th October 178 (52% increase) w/e 18th October 117 (72% increase) w/e 11th October 68 (33% increase) w/e 4th October 51 Please don't let individual day reporting skew your judgement, the increasing rates of this virus death rates is very worrying, even at the lowest weekly increase seen throughout October, it paints a very bleak end of the year picture.

  38. Away and make a wee cup of tea for this one.☕️ Paisley Racecourse Stand Collapse August 8th, 1901 Over the decades the Paisley area has had probably more than its fair share of calamity with numerous tragedies i.e. mining disasters, drownings, Cinema and Theatre incidents, Factory explosions and Rail Accidents , however probably one of the less know tragedies is that of the Grandstand collapse of August 8th, 1901. Paisley Racecourse (St James Park) was for years one of scotlands - indeed the UKs - foremost Horse Race venues. It was a place of repute, not only for the crime which took place within its environs, a reputation earned through the level of muggers and pickpockets who attended, but known for its high prize races , particularly the famous Paisley 'Silver Bells' race. On Thursday August 8th, 1901, the crowds thronged the course and the place was buzzing with chatter , people soaking in the atmosphere and laying bets on their particular preferred Nags, either tipped or just fancied. It was just after the second race that the 'Half Crown Stand', packed with approximately 1,000 spectators gave way under the weight, and before the panic stricken crowd could get clear the entire structure collapsed. An indescribable scene of confusion and alarm ensued and those rescuers amongst them had difficulty getting through the gathered crowd until the Police managed to break a way through to retrieve the casualties from underneath the debris of the Stand. Stretchers were made out of any suitable material that could be found and Doctors and ambulances called for were quickly on the scene, eventually taking over 50 people to the Royal Alexandria Infirmary, Twenty of whom were detained. When word of the collapse spread rapidly around the Town large crowds flocked to the Racecourse to find out if their friends have been caught up in the accident. When the Stand gave way there had been approximately 1,000 people on the structure but many more had taken shelter underneath from the heavy Rain that was falling, they of course suffered most severely, many of those in the Stand when feeling the structure giving way, succeeded in saving themselves from injury by leaping over the back into the Paddock. It was fully an Hour before the last of the injured were extricated from the debris. Amongst those detained in Hospital by their injuries were :- Robert Burnett (33), a Waiter, 33 Canal Street , left Thigh broken and Right Thigh injured Donald McTaggert (39) Boilermaker, 2 Springbank Road, Injury to Knee James Phin (31), Clerk, 115 South Harbour Street, Ayr, Fractured Leg Walter Underwood, (28) Fruit Salesman, 33 Carlyle Road, Bradford, Bruised Knee John Cunningham Crawford, (50) Schoolmaster, Inchinnan.

    No it is not. Everyone who has had a positive test and then dies will be lumped together no matter what the cause of death. However this is my last post in response to you because you are the most tedious of bores on every subject and who has, and will, twist anything you disagree with in an attempt to troll.

  41. Hard to tell if the break will work for us or against but it has given us time to get our injured players back. With any luck we'll see a similar performance to the one Motherwell had against County after a long period without a game. Really could do with a win to give us all a lift.

  42. That church is something I'm quietly proud of! After closing as a church it went the usual way of being a furniture store / odds and sods salesroom, and slowly but surely it started to really deteriorate as a building. It was a nice Grade 2 listed building, but that made no difference to the owners. Having been dragged up in Paisley, but now working in the big smoke (of Glasgow), I was well aware that grants were available through a government funded body and they would support development of any building if you could show that benefit would come from the investment. I had the idea of creating three floors of flats with an atrium in the middle. The big problem were the long windows on each side of the building, and how would you introduce a floor detail for the middle level of flats. The Paisley Planners weren't at all enthusiastic and basically said we couldn't touch the building, or all we could create were two levels of residential, which didn't financially work. So I asked for Historic Scotland to become involved and one of their people came to Paisley and we turned up at the building with the Paisley Planner in tow. She was fully expecting to be backed up by Historic Scotland, but they backed our idea to the hilt and said that this was one of the best solutions they had seen for a building of this type. So the bottom line was that we carried out the development and I can actually say, I saved the building. The great advantage that it had was no burial ground around it and internally it wasn't too ecclesiastical so not that difficult to get the right look. I hope if any members of the forum live, or has lived here it would be good to hear what they thought of it. I haven't been in the building for a long number of years. The development was completed around 1988.
