Scotland and Wales refuse to adopt Boris Johnson’s ‘stay alert’ slogan

10th May 20 1:55 pm

Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said she will refuse to switch immediately to the British Prime Ministers’ new slogan.

Sturgeon said on Sunday she first learned of the “the PM’s new slogan” in newspaper reports and said, she will not be switching her message “given the critical point we are at.”

She said, “The Sunday papers is the first I’ve seen of the PM’s new slogan.

“It is of course for him to decide what’s most appropriate for England, but given the critical point we are at in tackling the virus, #StayHomeSaveLives remains my clear message to Scotland at this stage.”

Wales First Minister Mark Drakeford is also following Sturgeon, as he stressed, by “staying at home” is the best way to “protect yourself.”

Drakeford stressed to Ridge, the stay-home message had not “gone away” for Wales.

He said, “The message I will be giving to people in Wales is while they must be alert to the continuing danger of coronavirus… staying at home remains the best way that you can protect yourself and others.

“The fewer contacts you have with other people, the more you suppress your own risk and the risk to others.

“So being alert is important but staying at home has not gone away.”
