The U.K. Daily Mail posted an article yesterday about an 82-year-old Scottish Grandmother who asked a question that I think all of us should be asking.
The article reports:
An 82-year-old grandmother has been fined £60 for attending a seven-person lockdown-breaching 70th birthday bash – even though every person there was fully vaccinated.
Maureen Hogg, from Eaglesham, East Renfrewshire, was given the notice for antisocial behaviour after police broke up the celebration.
All seven attendees received a fine for £60, even though each one of them had both doses of the Covid-19 jab.
The article quotes the million-dollar question:
Ms Hogg’s granddaughter Daisy Hogg, 17, said her grandmother questioned ‘why she needs to shield if she has the vaccine’.
If the vaccine works, what is the problem?
The article includes the following:
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: ‘We were called around 9pm on Sunday, 11 April, 2021 following a reported breach of coronavirus regulations at a property on Kirkton Drive, Eaglesham.
‘Officers attended, spoke to those involved and seven fixed penalty notices were issued.’
Have we reached the point where neighbors are tattling on neighbors? If so, I think we need to rethink this whole coronavirus thing.
