Sorry for the re-toot but this is a fantastic video. It's not British or Scottish but it says all that I want for independence.
There's never been born a bully boy that would stand up to a group of decent people ready to help each other.
Link arms. Stand with any *fair minded* neighbour no matter his ethnicity, colour, religion, sexual preferances, language or social standing.
Don't let the thugs and racists win. Stand and act together.
Build an independent Scotland wherein that's the norm.
Happy New Year everyone.

This is just to check in how much interest there is in the following:

A list of government errors, necessarily cut short. I just wonder if anyone can provide a list in support of the government's management of coronavirus, God knows many are claiming they're doing well.
In a modern city this would not even be three parking spots. In a real city we have homes for families and businesses. Cars have no place in a city. Bernkastel-Kues, Germany. #GoodUrbanism
In this moment, the only way to show we care is by keeping our distance. #Covid19
This sounds disastrous for freedom and free speech. It's not unexpected from a dictatorial state like China but after this little bomb shell, how can any country trust Huawei to be part of it's 5G infrastructure?

Some Hard information on #COVID19 as compared to other epidemics in recent history.
R0 = 2.2
Global Mortality: 7%
Death Toll = 4,718 (and rising)
== 2009 Swine-flu ==
R0 = 1.5
Global Mortality: 0.04%
Death Toll = 500,000
== 2002 SARS ==
R0 = 3
Global Mortality: 9.6%
Death Toll = 349
== 1920 Spanish Flu ==
R0 = 2
Global Mortality: 2.5%
Death toll = 100 million
For those who don't know R0 is the average number of people who will contract the disease from an infected individual.
As you can see the numbers are very concerning. The only disease that had the same potential for damage as this would have been the SARS epidemic in 2002. Luckily it was contained early on and never spread. The big difference seems to be the 2002 SARS epidemic had very few if any asymptomatic individuals. So it was easy to stop the disease before it spread (artificially lowering the R0 effectively).
However the COVID-19 has a large portion of people with the disease whoa re asymptomatic. This causes the spread to go unhindered. Despite having a lower R0 and lower mortality rate the death toll is already more than 10x what it was for 2002 SARS.
The numbers are scary, it suggests to me, we are in for some really nasty times ahead...
This is truly uplifting! Please toot and retoot. I was hiding my face from my kids because I had tears in my eyes.
