@afneil I switched from reading The Guardian to The Spectator about 9 months ago; after reading @DouglasKMurray's 'The Madness of Crowds'.

This change has improved my mood immeasurably.

The Guardian, ITN and The Economist are all still taking money from the Government’s Covid-19 furlough scheme. The Spectator took some last Spring -- and handed it all back in the summer when it realised it didn't need it.

@afneil You must be one of the best adverts for independence from what I am reading and hear.

Your reading and hearing has clearly missed the most recent polls.

@afneil Any chance that the Aberdein evidence will appear on the Spectator’s website?

We don’t have it. But if we did .....

This is bizarre.

More than 20m in UK have now received their first Covid jab, as new evidence shows just one shot of the vaccine gives 90% protection

Quoted @scotfax

In retrospect.
@SophyRidgeSky gets outflanked by @NicolaSturgeon on when she first knew.
R asks about evidence that she knew BEFORE the meeting in her home but S switches to the EDI airport allegations, talking over the Aberdein meeting.
@afneil wouldn’t have been manipulated.

Her meeting with Geoff Aberdein on March 29 2018 was fixed earlier that month by her chief of staff to review the complaints and fix a follow on meeting with Salmond (April 2). So inconceivable she didn’t know in March. If not before.
