'You f****d it for everyone' Aberdeen bar staff hit out at other pubs as city put into strict lockdown

Staff at an Aberdeen bar have hit out at other pubs in the city after the area was put into strict lockdown.

The official Facebook account for CASC in the city's Stirling Street posted a scathing statement saying some establishments in the city had 'f****d it for everyone'.

The lengthy post claims some pubs 'showed no regard for safety'.

Clusters identified in the city were linked to bars.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced Scotland’s first local lockdown yesterday after a spike in cases emerged in the city over the course of the week.

The closure of all pubs, bars and restaurants, a five-mile travel ban and restrictions on the mixing of households are among the new rules put in place.

In the rant, CASC asked that Aberdeen City Council 'deal with bars accordingly, at least from a licensing standpoint'.

It read: "We would like to take this opportunity to address the bars who f****d it for everyone.

"You, who put the shilling before safety of customers, have ruined it for the rest of us.

"Seriously, nae cool, folks.

"Small businesses have had a terrible time during this, and the glimmer of hope that was phase three has been utterly bulldozed by you selfish, till filling narcissists who permeate this city.

"You have single-handedly put the livelihoods of hundreds of bar staff, and businesses, at further risk, at the benefit of your own pocker. "

CASC staff hope regulators come down hard on the establishments they refer to in the post.

It continued: "Well, karma can hit hard, and we pray that it is your own pockets that are hit hardest by this outcome.

"We seriously hope licensing is looking closely at this, and remembers those who remained closed, or held standards high, and those who did not.

"For our friends in the industry who put up the good fight and held standards high, we salute you.

"You took the plunge and kept the industry going.

"Your efforts will not be forgotten, at least not by us.

"But for those who scuppered it for everyone, we hope you suffer the consequences. "

Reference was made to alleged photos surfacing on social media of huge crowds gathering outside various night haunts, despite social distancing guidelines.

"No, this is not a response to the NHS list that was released, but in relation to the photos posted all over social media of certain establishments showing no regard for safety, which has led to this point," CASC added.

"This message may be harsh, but harsh is what's needed now for these bars.

"The council need to deal with them accordingly, at the very least from a licensing standpoint.

"Lockdown has been a hard time for mental health and we hope everyone continues to look after themselves, an each other.

"Stay strong and stay safe, we hope to see you soon.

"Love CASC."

Some punters praised the bar for their damning post and echoed similar feelings of anger and frustration.

One commented: "I think this sums up the feelings of many.

"I'd also direct this to the idiots who thought it was a okay to join already packed queues or who totally ignored social distancing measures."

Another added: "The owners and management chose to allow all those people in.

"They could have controlled the numbers but were too busy stuffing the tills with money.

"Shameful, just shameful.

A third wrote: "Well said, couldn't agree more.

"This is why i have so little faith on the general public because it takes no time at all for fools to screw up.

"Give them an inch and they run a mile.

"It took less than two weeks for idiots and corporate greed to screw things over for everyone particularly the likes of you."

Others attempted to put the blame on revellers rather than business owners.

One wrote: "Let’s not absolve the individuals who went to these establishments from blame.

"Every single one of those people chose to be there and to behave in that way.

"They have to take personal responsibility for their actions."

Another commented: "Not all the blame lays with business owners, but predominantly with all the idiots queuing outside without adhering to the rules, social distancing and wearing masks.

"They should be prosecuted for endangering public health and safety, all for the sake of having an alcohol fix."

A third added: "Councils and business owners do have a responsibility, however, every individual is collectively responsible.

"People could see the crowd but went ahead anyway, when a place looked too busy, folk had the option to walk away but decided not to.

"People are primarily responsible for their own health and fully responsible fir their own actions."

NHS Grampian yesterday confirmed 54 positive cases of Covid-19, most of which are linked to an outbreak at the Hawthorn Bar in the city.

NHS Test and Protect has so far identified 191 close contacts, with that figure expected to rise in the coming days.

Schools are still expected to reopen in the city from August 11 despite a significant rise in the number of cases.

Extra police have also been drafted into the city for additional patrols to ensure that people are following the rules.

Each of those individuals has been ordered to self-isolate in a bid to prevent the virus from tightening its grip on Scotland again.

Lockdown restrictions will be in place in Aberdeen over the next seven days, but the First Minister warned that period could be extended if it is necessary.

Speaking at the Scottish Government’s coronavirus press briefing yesterday, Nicola Sturgeon said: “The decisions are not being taken lightly but we are at a stage of this pandemic where strong action is necessary and sensible.

"The last thing we want to do is to reimpose these restrictions but this outbreak is reminding us just how highly infectious Covid is.

“Our precautionary and careful judgement is that we need to take decisive action now, difficult as that undoubtedly is, in order to try and contain this outbreak and prevent further harm later on.

“As I said earlier, this is about doing all we can to ensure our children can return to schools next week.”
