Scotland drug deaths

I am so sorry to hear that. It's an amazing country and the people are so friendly. Hopefully, something can be done to change this very soon.
Probably because people are bored and stressed; we can almost certainly blame that on the lockdown.
Time to hold our SNP government to account, but nah.... independence is always top of the agenda!
Cue more hair-brained, money wasting schemes from the stupid national party!
I mean, they're not wrong? How about safer practice? Open conversation about the problems and how to work as a community to help?
Sad, but they know the risks.
My understanding is that should drug laws be devolve, then Scotland would implement a model similar to Portugal, while the UK government don’t see it as being authoritarian enough and rejected this model.
No easy way out of this in my view. People dont get addicted from taking a drug one time, continuous consumption creates the addiction and then they are trapped in the vicious circle. The same goes for smoking and drinking and obesity. Yes, these people need help, but there is only so much you can do. Drugs have been available for thousands of years, does anyone really think that we would cure this within a few generations?
Any type of substance abuse - drugs, alcohol, glue sniffing etc - particularly where deaths occur, is a regrettable tragedy and shouldn't be politicised for party gains! The Scottish government has put forward proposals to tackle this issue to the UK government who control "devolved" drug reserved matters, but Westmonster has rejected the proposition! England's shame.....alcohol killed more people in 2020 in England and Wales than in any of the previous 20 years, official data shows. There were 7423 deaths from alcohol misuse last year - a rise of 20 per cent from 2019, the Office for National Statistics says.
Jodie Whittaker has confirmed she will be leaving her role in 2022, the BBC have confirmed. Who would you like to see become the next Doctor?
Elaine Rose Hamilton
Defo Michael Sheen, he’d make a great Doctor.
Richard Ayoade would be a good fit for an anti-social doctor.
I’d love to see transgender representation in the Doctor Who universe, a transgender doctor would be so wonderful.
There is only one person it can be, Romesh Ranganathan. Susan Calman will probably get it. Gradually it loses credibility until it is just a homeopathic dose of what it once was.
I think the name “Dr Who” should be changed to a “Dr What” because some people are offended at who?
Well, it's either me or David Tennant, if he's not busy.
Euan Gerard Keenan
Olly Alexander, obviously.
Micheal Sheen, Brian Blessed, Robert Carlyle or James Nesbitt.
Micheal Sheen is a good shout. He’s Welsh, and Doctor Who is made in Cardiff. So a perfect fit, I think.
Andrew Scott or Ben Wishaw.
Boris…he’s got the hairstyle for it.
It'll be a woman again.
Rick Mayall would have been a fab doctor, Dawn French, David Williams or Matt Lucas, Susan Calman, Richard Ayoade, Rupert Grint. I’m not bothered what gender the doctor is to be honest, the barrier has now been broken and as we know the doctor changes It could never be set in stone.
Hugh Lawrie would be fab!
