    She should have been sacked.

    So firstly Nicola Sturgeon tries to defend Dr Calderwood by saying that anyone can make a mistake then, when it turns out not to be the first mistake made by her Chief Medical Officer (Calderwood had travelled to her second home the previous weekend as well), Sturgeon says the CMO will continue working but will not appear in press conferences.

    Now Dr Calderwood has had to resign, Nicola Sturgeon will be seen to have been swayed by the media and by public opinion instead of making a firm decision from the outset that the CMO's behaviour was indefensible.

    Not a great outcome for the leader of the SNP or her CMO.

    Of course the Queen has moved to her second (or possibly third or fourth) home at Sandringham. I don't think anyone has suggested she should resign.

    Her Majesty (until last night anyway) hasn't been on national TV telling people to stay in.

    It is a monumentally poor error of Judgement on her part

    Not you Maam.....

    if it's her second home (why do people need second homes?), then why can't she go there? She can't infect anybody when she is in her home whether it's her first home or her second. The police are just being pedantic.

    The instruction not to go anywhere except to get necessities like shopping is to stop car accidents from taking up NHS time anyway so I can't see the police's point. She should be able to go to0 which ever home she owns if she wants to although she has to travel by car. So..........

    That'll be me then! Since the lockdown began I've observed it religiously!

    I'm without sin so I get to chuck a stone at her! Stupid, arrogant, hypocritical, dangerous idiot!

    No matter how careful you are, you always run the risk of passing the virus on to somebody else. If you travel from a densely populated area where the virus is causing problems to a different area you are risking the safety of people in that area. People knew this in 1665.
