Regarding the month-long road closure at the beach for the cycle lanes to be removed – Aberdeen City Council incompetence at its best.
There are reports that Chancellor Rishi Sunak wants to impose a pay freeze on millions of public sector workers to pay for the astronomical costs of Covid-19.
While undoubtedly well-intentioned, I have reservations about Boris Johnson’s green crusade, specifically the decision to ban sales of new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030 (a policy not included in the Tory manifesto at the last election).
I watched a recent President Obama interview and remembered what was and then looked forward to what could be with the new presidency.
I cannot believe the arrogance of the Aberdeen Cycle Forum, Grampian Cycle Partnership and Scottish Cycling North East Grampian, who are calling for the return of the cycle lane at the beach.
I heard our first minister defending the Scottish Test & Trace system yesterday. She seemed to compare our system with the English counterpart which, like ours, is not working to expectations.

We now have a Scottish Government report about Covid-19 positive tested patients being released into care homes which finds “no statistical evidence” in hospital discharges to care homes leading to Covid outbreaks.
I write with regards to GC’s letter: Sick of students acting like brats.
I see many folk are on about getting people into Aberdeen to start shopping and using the restaurants.
In response to GC’s letter about “immature” students, I understand your frustration. This last year has been a long and difficult one for many of us. I hope you’ll understand and take the time to consider what I have to say in response.
