A con­tro­ver­sial an­ti­mask and anti-vac­cine demon­stra­tion held out­side the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment in protest at the on­go­ing Covid-19 restric­tions was or­gan­ised by a coun­cil­lor who claims that care home res­i­dents are be­ing “treated like pris­on­ers of war” dur­ing the pan­demic.

I agree with him. Value of na­tional debt is 105 per cent of GDP. This is many times worse than the last eco­nomic cri­sis from which we still haven’t re­cov­ered. No one is telling us about peo­ple suf­fer­ing from can­celled op­er­a­tions, about peo­ple who lost their jobs and busi­nesses.

Rocky Naw Paddy Hogg should go and visit some of the peo­ple who’ve been in­fected or worse, lost mem­bers of their fam­ily to Covid. I don’t 100 per cent agree with ev­ery­thing

Ni­cola Stur­geon and the SNP are do­ing, but I’ll tell you what, I’d trust them be­fore I start lis­ten­ing to this clown!

Peter Keenan It’s all they talk about on the news. I’m miss­ing hear­ing about Brexit!

Scott Parker To the peo­ple who think Covid-19 is a hoax, send them on to a ward to help NHS staff and see for them­selves. Or do they think the pa­tients are ac­tors?

An­drea Thom­son

Th­ese peo­ple and their ig­no­rance scare me al­most more than coron­avirus.

Gill Ste­wart

They’re cor­rect. The lock­down is and will cause a lot more harm than the virus.

Robin Dian­gelo

Th­ese folks who don’t be­lieve it could vol­un­teer for the test­ing of any new vac­cine. Pay them well for their time, it should be a breeze.

David Barr

He’s right, where is ev­ery­body? I’m not see­ing any­one with even the slight­est sign of a cold, let alone this killer coron­avirus. We’re be­ing told it’s there, but where?

Paddy Stim­son

With­out the me­dia we wouldn’t even know there was a pan­demic!

Martina Can­non-ball

It’s fright­en­ing that so many peo­ple are vul­ner­a­ble to the Rus­sian mis­in­for­ma­tion cam­paign. It’s meant to tar­get gullible Amer­i­cans but it seems some peo­ple in Scot­land are fall­ing for it too.

Neena Livng­stone

He’s a very dan­ger­ous man! Covid is real, I’ve had now for eight months

Clark Ben­nett

Tell that to all the peo­ple who have lost a loved one to this virus. Or why don’t you visit a Covid ward and ask them if it’s a hoax?

Margaret Lough Oh look, it’s the ‘don’t lis­ten to the ex­perts, we know bet­ter brigade’ at it again. Laugh­able

Fiona Macken­zie

I was there. We need to put an end this mad­ness, and any­one with a brain in their head who has looked at the stats would say the same. The coun­try is a sham­bles.

Kevin Jack­son

Well that’s big of you.

To make that de­ci­sion on be­half of the sen­si­ble in the pop­u­la­tion and their fam­i­lies. I take it that it will be OK to sue you per­son­ally if there are any fur­ther deaths? Ask­ing for a friend (a sick one).

Paul John­ston It’s all th­ese con­spir­acy nut jobs that are caus­ing harm out there. “Plan­demic, sheeple, 5G masts “. . .give it a rest.

Scott Mor­gan
