    Did anyone watch it? What did you make of it?

    It really felt like a propaganda exercise. While he comes across down to earth and personable, there was no hard questions, no curveballs. It was, to put it another way, boring.

    Coupled with the previous item where the girl lost her father to C19, it like a PR exercise.

    Not saying it was, but that is what is came across like.

    Also the term 'wet pubs' is so patronising. :pac:

    I thought he did a good job.

    Hardly going to be hauled over the coals on the LLS.

    Not propaganda more public information in a chat show setting.

    The woman doctor's interview about her father's death was intense and personal and about as far removed from PR as it is possible to be.

    Agree re. "wet pubs". Horrible term, I don't know where it came from but it should be consigned to the dustbin of history.

    Fluff piece. That’s all the LLS is now anyway.

    What was really patronising was two millionaires (thanks to the Irish taxpayer) propagating the government message without challenge, without an alternative voice on strategy, without discussing the economic ramifications of NPHET decisions etc.
    But then again it's RTE, so it should be no surprise to anyone.

    Tubs failed to ask that young woman an extremely important question:

    Did her father have one or more underlying conditions that might have contributed to his death?

    I suspect that if he had been fit and healthy Tubs or the daughter would have emphasised that.

    It was blatant propaganda. Get the sob story in before hand. Get Glynn out. Smugly suggest the majority support them.

    Awkward silence when pubs and vaccines were mentioned.

    We should just do as they say for 9 more months apparently.

    Wasn’t quite clear what happens in 9 months.

    "Dya reckon your dad was on the way out like, would you even have been bothered trying to save him or was he rickety and sh!te?"

    Something like that?

    Like him, Trust Him, have faith in him, it's a shame Leo & Co are hell bent in undermining what Dr Glynn & NPHET have done and continues to do, namely act in the best interests of public health. Dr Glynn and indeed Professor Nolan appear to be the only people who've been consistent from day one.

    Well there’s no one stopping you personally following or going beyond Nphet guidelines is there (whatever they are as they seem to blow with whatever is the mania of a particular week) ?
    This whole thing is fading fast- all people are talking about is the (happily) extremely low mortality and hospitalisation rates the past month. The figures just speak for themselves

    Sorry but in the context a patients full medical history is extremely pertinent here. If that’s understandably a private matter then don’t make it public by going on the LLS talking about it

    They do indeed & I suspect NPHET & it's approach to date are the reason

    Virtually nothing to do with nphet who are simply a government cover mechanism. I dont get the almost religious like devotion.

    The hash tag yes but not Dr Glynn & other medical experts, when you see the looneys in charge in the US, be thankful.

    We'll clearly disagree on this but I doubt sincerely Michael Martin, Leo, Simon Harris and dear God, the latest clown, Donnelly and their collective stupidly would have stirred the nation anyway but into an real crisis had it not been for NPHET. Its very telling Leo passed the book to MM when the poo was about to hit the fan and its equally telling Harris moved to a non discript department that seems only to announce another educational scheme when another crisis begins. Mind boggling ineptitude from the political leadership throughout this crisis

    Who were the two millionaires??? Tubs and????

    You'd be a long time getting rich in the HSE.

    Funny, I picked up on that too. For a man who said he doesn't deal in certainty, 9 months came up a couple of times.

    It was weird. Almost like something already decided on.
    Whether you can keep the current 'normal' going for another 9 months is a different matter.

    Wet Pub? I hate it

    Is there a deliberate effort to make them sound like a "wet market" where these viruses are generally originating?

    Makes you wonder.

    Why not just call them pubs, like we always did?

    Maybe 9 months time is when the vaccine is planned to be released.

    Some very cynical people say the vaccine was ready last year or earlier, before the virus was loosed upon the world.

    Those are the sort of people who say we didn't land on the moon or that Bill Gates is trying to kill us all, so I wouldn't pay much attention to them.

    Or to associate them with alcoholism- wet brain, wet hostels etc.

    It's like a wet woman. Overpriced but you get what you paid for.:D

    You jest, right?
    The salary for the boss at the HSE is €350,000 per annum. It did not take him long to get rich in the HSE.
    The salary for the chief medical officer is also in the 6 figure range.
    Tubridy earns roughly 1/2 million euros per annum; the number is currently uncertain and it may be more, as RTE will not release the current salaries.

    Wet is used to describe homeless shelters where drunks and smack heads can use

    You can see what's going on here

    I heard the term WETS in northern england meaning beer. Also saw a film think it was brassed off set in northern england. Lads would refer to getting the WETS IN as in a round of drinks. Think it's English and northern English at that. Could be wrong..
