Nicola Sturgeon mocked the Twitter rant about the coronavirus – “You made your bed, now lie down!” | United Kingdom | New

Ms Sturgeon’s comments come after it was reported that police were investigating a house party in Midlothian. Over 300 people attended the event which took place in Gorebridge. The Prime Minister was recently criticized for reinstating lockdown restrictions at Glasgow Central and Clyde yesterday after an increase in coronavirus cases.

Ms. Sturgeon responded to an article about the police investigation.

On Twitter, the Prime Minister blasted revelers for being “irresponsible” during the pandemic.

She said: “It is difficult to say how totally irresponsible this type of behavior is under the current circumstances.

“It puts people at risk and threatens our progress out of lockdown.

“PLEASE do not attend house parties at this time.”

But Scots on Twitter took the PM to task for his comments.

One user pointed to Ms Sturgeon’s “double standards” regarding the current coronavirus restriction rules.

Another said: “Maybe if pubs could play Nicky music, we wouldn’t need 300+ at a house party.

“You made your bed, now lie down in it.”

Another user said: “You can’t expect young people to stay locked up forever. “

Police were called to the Midlothian house party at 12:20 a.m. Sunday.

The party was dispersed by officers and a 29-year-old man was fined for staging the event.

Deputy Police Chief Malcolm Graham said at the time: “Those who attended this organized event demonstrated a blatant disregard for the regulations in place to help save lives and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“Anyone attempting to stage such an event, or any party in flagrant violation of the law, should know that it will face a firm response from the Scottish Police.”

It comes after the Prime Minister introduced the local lockdown in Glasgow and surrounding areas.

Ms Sturgeon defended the decision, saying she understood locals to be “frustrated” but urged them to view the decision as a “wake-up call”.

But political columnist Alison Rowat has warned patience for restrictions is running out in Scotland and accused the SNP of being addicted to panicking over the coronavirus crisis.

She said: “Indeed, over 800,000 people have been hit by the hammer of a policy because of some selfish lunatics.”
