Blame for virus toll lies at West­min­ster

- Westminster · Scottish Government · Richmond

SIR, – Many con­trib­u­tors crit­i­cise the Scot­tish Gov­ern­ment’s ac­tions in re­gard to Covid-19.

In the main, di­rec­tion from Holy­rood has been clearer and more con­cise than that em­a­nat­ing from West­min­ster.

Of course we should al­ways re­mem­ber that, had West­min­ster re­acted timeously and closed the bor­ders, we would not be in this sad sit­u­a­tion.

We are, af­ter all, an is­land na­tion, much eas­ier to pro­tect than a land­locked one.

Gov­ern­ment’s first pri­or­ity is pro­tect­ing the well­be­ing of its pop­u­la­tion. West­min­ster failed, with­out ques­tion, to do so.
