Peter Smart, Laurencekirk
No wonder Confused of Glasgow is confused. Take two colleagues from the energy industry returning to UK after a 4 week tour of duty. One flies into Newcastle, and self-isolates unless (s)he has come from a state on the red list. Her/his mate flies into Aberdeen and has to go into 'managed isolation' in a hotel for 10 days at £1750. The only people who seem to be immune from this in Scotland are so-called 'elite' sportspersons, who come and go with impunity. Which is right? No comment! Just a much more cautious First Minister and her advisers, it seems.

From confused of Glasgow. One rule for all please. A British passport holder.

I for one do not understand the rules but to get anywhere I either have to go from Donegal Airport to Dublin and its limited flights, or Derry to Stansted with even less choice. But I am not a UK direct tax payer. Derry to Heathrow makes much for sense.
