Some thoughts on the current #COVID situation in #Scotland - thanks to @HMcArdleHT @TigressEllie for the prompt.
I think the last couple of months - and especially the last week or so - teach us a lot about the virus spread in highly vaccinated populations.
The size of the outbreak in school-age children is staggering. Compare the peaks this September with the first and the second wave in the graph below:

1/ Ok so if you haven’t heard, we launched a report called ‘Failure Demand’. What does #FailureDemand mean? It’s a concept that explains the cycle of paying to band-aid problems - that continue to break.

If you haven’t read the report, do so here:
2/ Huh? Quick Econ-101🤓 Our current system creates a lot of ‘damage’ that the government is required to respond to. This includes widening economic inequalities, high levels of insecurity, despair, loneliness & the prospect of catastrophic climate breakdown & biodiversity loss.
3/ The report explains that much of this damage can be avoided if we just had a more socially just, sustainable economic model - *cough cough* a #WellbeingEconomy 🌞

My experiences with the NHS Scotland Covid Status app so far. A thread 🧵
After scrolling through various introductory screens and a privacy policy (let's be real, who reads them?) I'm met with this login screen. Common sense would dictate that I can use my login that I use to access my vaccination status online, right?
Spoiler alert: that's not the case. Tried logging in with those details and it wouldn't recognise them. New NHS app = new login details I suppose? Even if you are accessing the same data...

Dear People of #Israel,

It’s time to get off the trains.

Get out into the streets and start protesting this tyranny in huge numbers, like the rest of the world are.

It’s time to wake up.
These are protests against tyranny in #Turkey 🇹🇷

Get off the trains.

1. Gordon Brown, who is very on message about vaccination and other globalist cabal agendas was accused of being a pedophile by Norman Lamont (UK Chancellor of the Exchequer 1990-93) at a private party in 1986, who told journalist Mike James #MikeJames #GordonBrown #NormanLamont
2. Mike James wrote in 2010: "Gordon Brown, the current British prime minister, is a practicing pedophile whose activities are known not only to the British, American and Israeli intelligence services, but also by Rupert Murdoch and his senior editor at the Sunday Times."
3. Back in 2003 Mike James wrote "Tony Blair Caught Protecting Elite Paedophile Ring " when Tony Blair issued D notices to censor the press... #MikeJames #TonyBlair #GordonBrown #pedophile

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

Court grants permission for judicial review into Unexplained #WealthOrder against Donald Trump

The judge's approval of the #McMafiaLaw probe represents "a significant hurdle" for legal efforts to scrutinize the financing of Trump's resorts

#Avaaz, a US-based non-profit activism organisation, petitioned #Scotland’s highest court after MSPs rejected calls to pursue an Unexplained Wealth Order (UWO) against the former US president’s Scottish firms.

"Its petition to the court stated that there are 'no reasonable grounds' to suspect that known sources of lawfully obtained income would have been sufficient to bankroll Mr Trump's acquisition of his Scottish properties."

Gurkhas and the British

Men from the hillsides of Nepal began joining the British Army in 1815,right after the end of the 1st phase of the Anglo-Gurkha War of 1814-16.They have been serving the British Crown ever since.#Gurkha #Gurkhas #Nepal #ENGITA #Eng…
The Gurkhas played an essential role in establishing the British Raj in India and fought for the British in Afghanistan, what was then Burma, Tibet and in countless other conflicts.

#England #Britain #British #Army #BritishArmy #Eng #ENGITA #Euro2020Final #EuroFinal #EURO2020
In the first world war alone, tiny Nepal,with a population of around 5 million, sent over 200,000 Gurkhas to fight for the British. 1 in 10 never returned. In the second world war over 250,000 Gurkhas fought alongside the British and more than 33,000 never returned.

I remember #Glasgow slums; poverty has a stench - despair
Didn’t expect to write about it 30yrs on; kids denied 1 free meal a day for a few million; a mere drop in the #Covid spend
#Poverty's not as visible now as then, covered by #food #banks, #charity shopping
PERHAPS you have to be a certain age to have witnessed real poverty when it came in ragged clothes and dirt-encrusted faces with the impetigo scars of deprivation.
Now poverty can be disguised in warm clothes that hide the spindle shanks of children under fed;
malnourished on a carbohydrate diet cobbled up from the pennies left after feeding the heat and light.
My first, but not last encounter, with this demi-monde came in 1970s Glasgow shocking me to the core of my being and leaving me with an anger that has never abated.

Kim Leadbeater is running against George Galloway in #BatleyAndSpen on 1st July.

He is friends with Nigel Farage, who is close friends with Katie Hopkins.

HER friends who hate LGBTQI+ people just chased and harassed Kim Leadbeater in the street in #BatleyAndSpen 😡

#VoteLabour George Galloway and Nigel F...Nigel Farage and Katie Hopkins
Katie Hopkins is friends with Milo Yiannopoulos who worked for Steve Bannon at Breitbart.

Here is George Galloway with Bannon who was Chaiman of Breitbart, hugging & celebrating May's ouster.

They're ALL #VL #ToryDictatorship👈

#KimLeadbeater was harassed just miles away from where her sister #JoCox was murdered by a white supremacist 5 years ago

It was a planned verbal assault by a pro-Tory gang on 'Labour' that didn't mention the Vote Leave #Islamaphobia that caused Jo's death

"the virus will concentrate in [unvaccinated] school-age populations, which will eventually become a reservoir & driver of any ensuing Delta variant epidemic, as well as being a hotspot in which new mutations may arise"

What if vaccinees are a reservoir?… Image

Sirs, the mission statement of the RBWF states clearly that its aim is to ‘promote, educate and celebrate the life and works of Robert Burns and Scotland’s heritage, language and culture’ (as shown below). 1/ Image
This of course states plainly that promoting Scotland’s languages and culture is important as well as the works of Robert Burns, our most famous poet in the Scots language. It also states as below, that the RBWF will promote Burns amongst the public, students & schoolchildren. 2/ Image
I understand that Lesley McDonald is an elected member of your board as the Education Convener.

As such she holds a responsibility for educating the public as part of the aforementioned mission statement. 3/ Image
