    Scotland record is far from exemplary ( post 1914 ). More deaths in care homes than England, more deaths ih poorer areas than England, and less testing as well.

    Probably LESS funding for testing, too... And the poorer areas are PROPER poor, unlike in England, where they're just playing at it

    Undoubtedly though, to anyone with half a brain and the ability to examine things rationally, 'The Strurge' has handled the lockdown in Scotland, and this pandemic in general, far better than Boris the Blundering Buffoon has done in England!

    These sources suggest otherwise:

    "In 2018/19, public spending per person in the UK as a whole was £9,584. In England, it was £9,296 (3% below the UK average). This compares with:

    Scotland: £11,247 (17% above the UK average)
    Wales: £10,656 (11% above the UK average)
    Northern Ireland £11,590 (21% above the UK average).

    Among the English regions, public spending per person was lowest in the South East and East Midlands at £8,601 (10% below the UK average) and highest in London at £10,425 (9% higher than the UK average)."




    https://www.carehomeprofessional.com...ng-per-person/

    New analysis by The Health Foundation has revealed that spending on social care per person in Scotland and Wales is significantly above that in England.

    The report shows that England is spending £310 per person on social care, 43% less than Scotland (£445) and 33% below Wales (£414).

    The Health Foundation reveals that England has fallen further behind Scotland and Wales since 2010/11 when it spent £345 per person compared with £457 in Scotland (32% more) and £445 in Wales (29% more)."

    I suppose it all comes down to who you believe.

    Remember that my first paragraph had a smiley at the end

    It's the second para that's pretty much indisputable though, unless you view the world through a thick blue fog...!

    It's not remotely indisputable regardless of political leanings or lack of them in my case. The gov had one priority in this crisis and that was to prevent the health service being overwhelmed and that has been achieved. The handling of the crisis has not been perfect but then it is impossible to handle a new and unexpected crisis perfectly. Way too many poorly-informed 'Captain Hindsight' comments on this thread.

    Governments in general do not handle things well at the best of times, achieving sub-optimal outcomes and poor value for money. Those who would like the government to run everything would do well to bear that in mind. Taking that into account it has not done too badly at all. As for the actual politicians it seems it needs to be pointed out again that they actually 'handle' very little themselves. That's what the Civil Service is for.

    I always thought the Civil Service did or tried to do what the government asked of them.

    My understanding is that it is the other way round the Civil Service tell the politicians what to do?
