A great idea from Scotland

The Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce has suggested:

Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce (AGCC) has asked the Scottish Government to scrap plans to permanently enshrine emergency lockdown powers in law, describing the move as “corrosive” to democracy and detrimental to Scotland’s recovery.

Should the government choose to proceed with the plans, the Chamber has requested that five conditions be attached, including that they must have the backing of at least 75 MSPs or more, and that politicians and government officials take a 25% pay cut for the duration of any future business restrictions to “understand” the financial impact.

That would incentivise to consider whether a lockdown etc is really necessary.
