It’ll be hard to put a smile on the faces of most Scots today with the news that the country is being plunged into a strict lockdown from tonight.
But one person who may manage to lift our spirits is Janey Godley.
And today, as the First Minister was forced to tighten restrictions across the country, the Scots funny woman played another blinder.
Dubbing the FM’s speech live from parliament, Janey gave her humorous take on a very serious issue to cheer everyone up.
She said: “Well happy 2021 everybody, winter is coming. Oot there it’s like an ice rink, I near went Torvil and Dean right on my a**e.
“Bottom line is this virus has mutated and we’re goany have to go right back into March lockdown again.
“I’ve been asking people aw year tae stay in the house if ye can, wash your hands, stay away fae each other, remember the two Alsatians rule, two meters, two full Alsatians apart.
“Obviously a lot of people huv been following the rules but some people huvnae, so we’re gonna have tae shut down the schools, shut the shops, the whole f*****g thing, tools in the store, we’re back tae square one.
“I’m asking ye aw no tae go out, f**k this off and end up the NHS is going to be overwhelmed, it’s that simple and it disnae matter how many people in the opposition say ‘whit you dain aboot this?’
“I don’t have a crystal ball, we’ve got the vaccine we’re trying to roll it out, we’re asking everybody to try their f*****g best and try and keep away fae each other, that’s the only way this virus is going to be under control, so look after each other, pull on your emotional life jacket and keep each other afloat.
“I’m heading off, I’mm gonna go and get a steak pie supper, f****n up tae high doe with the lot ae it.”
Earlier today, the FM confirmed the country would be going back into a tougher lockdown to deal with soaring levels of Covid-19 infection.
She announced the harsher measures in an emergency statement at the Scottish Parliament, urging the public to “stay at home”.
Sturgeon also stated just two people from different households can meet outdoors and confirmed schools will close to most pupils until the end of January.
She said: “The Cabinet met this morning to assess the up-to-date Covid situation – which is extremely serious – and discuss what further action is necessary to minimise further spread of the virus. I will set out our decisions shortly.
”However, I can confirm now, in summary, that we decided to introduce from midnight tonight, for the duration of January, a legal requirement to stay at home except for essential purposes. This is similar to the lockdown of March last year.”
