Necessities are just that.
Yes and it's a big industry which employs people, their livelihoods you know. Plenty of people use gyms and wanted them to open again. Risk is mitigated. Do you think the country will survive if everyone sits at home unless they are involved in our 'necessities'? There's areas of the economy that the government can't do much about, but they could at least give some gyms a chance of survival. Nobody is forced to attend them.

Viability is determined by the medical experts employed by the civil service.Someone who left the country to join IS won an appeal to be allowed back, so I doubt your policy would stand up in the courts.
So you, personally, have no idea of viability but you do want people to be given the option to use their own judgement.
You asked and I answered.

4 people in ICU and 2 on wards in ROI (2 days ago).I know you can be months in hospital but agree it looks odd as Scotlands cases have been low and 30 yesterday was an 8 week high. Irelands cases were roughly similar but the hospitalisations are way out.
Those are excellent figures for ROI also lapsy, well done over there.

They might be able to assist you with what material differences Scotland has had in relation to the epidemic. It seems you definitely need the help.

haha I've made my money on specials usually but moved to politics for the last few elections, pretty lucrative too. It helped knowing Corbyn was going to get spanked, even during the so called youthquake
One of my best ever events was the 2017 General election when Corbyn did rather well. Then again, I am not biased.

My third request to Cider: what is wrong with what NS said?
Are you an idiot? She was advising the scottish government. What do you think she's going to say. 'We waited to see if it went wrong in England, and when it didn't we rolled out the policy a few weeks later, not exactly the same though so it didn't look like we were copying and we still got paid'

He is probably feeling sorry for you.

Pretty sure you referred to me posting on the forum. I'll continue to do that, and making money out of politics when there are suitable markets.
You won't make any money, you are too biased.
