JUST a reminder that the chaos we are now facing was entirely predictable.
Not only was the shortage of skilled staff – including NHS workers, lorry drivers, vets and dentists — predicted by those who were campaigning to remain in the EU, and also in a government report called Yellowhammer. Our Prime Minister, obsessed as he is by controlling immigration, took no action.
He seems to prefer to ignore official reports. He did nothing about the desperate shortage of Personal Protective Equipment, predicted in the Cygnus report into our readiness to handle a flu epidemic. Instead, he panicked and spent around £1 billion on equipment which did not meet the WHO standards and could not be used – just one of his failures during the Covid pandemic.
The poor electorate are likely to have to wait for at least a couple of years before the tragedy that is a Boris Johnson government can end. We in Scotland do have an alternative. We must opt for the freedom to decide our own future, and soon!
