A series of bizarre notes have started to appear on some lamposts in and around Musselburgh in Scotland. One of our intrepid followers took a picture of one of them and sent the image into our team.
It took us a few minutes to decipher, but the handwritten note, placed into a plastic cover and cable-tied to a lampost said:
‘Real news. Your local council, police, social services or school can and will come into your home and remove you, your family member, your kids if they feel that you are a threat of passing the fake COVID 19 on to other members of your family.
‘This is kidnap.
‘Leaving your name and other details with shops haridressers, pubs etc is how they will track you if you do not comply. Think for yourself. WAKE UP NOW’.
And look; I get that some people are scared of the virus because what it can do to your body is genuinely shocking. Nobody wants to have their lungs and internal organs damaged by a virus that is 100% avoidable.
But I do not get why the tin-hat brigade feel the need to post their myths on lamposts? Most people have got enough intelligence to figure out the truth because they have ears, eyes and common sense.
