    I wasn't moaning. I was pointing out how wrong you were back in December/January.

    I don't post in this thread every day. It actually hasn't been very active until the past few days with people seemingly getting themselves all worked up about something that might not happen.

    Are people wrong to get worked up given what we know about this government’s need to kowtow to an extremely tiny cohort of people? And also with the amount of people who will do ANYTHING they are told to do cheering them on.

    I’m not getting worked up. You are the one who is constantly posting in here complaining about people posting in here.



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,073 ✭✭✭ Penfailed


    You ask if people are wrong to get worked up but then say you're not getting worked up...make up your mind.

    Yes Penfailed I said PEOPLE not ME. I’m surprised at you, considering how pedantic you always are…..



  • Registered Users Posts: 7,073 ✭✭✭ Penfailed


    In that case, then yes, people are wrong to get worked up.

    A couple of comments from Varadkar today:

    “”Ireland will get through the current summer Covid-19 wave without the need for further restrictions, according to Tánaiste Leo Varadkar.””


    ””The Tanaiste said that it is possible that the Government will ask people to wear masks in certain settings during the winter, but said he does not envisage a return of "restrictions that restrict people's freedoms or cause people's businesses to close."

    However, he added that this could not ultimately be ruled out””

    ^^ That's pretty much saying that masks will be back

    Brilliant 👏

    Simply madness Covid is even been discussed at this stage



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,752 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    The masks is a handy get out for the winter flu/COVID crisis

    I reckon the above is a large part of it seeing as how nothing else has been done about it



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,752 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    And why is Leo saying what they might do when he hasn't received any advice from CMO

    I thought CMO was deciding for government

    Kite flying is annoying as fukk

    MM talking about personal responsibility and vaccination, not playing up masks

    Really hard to know , it's like good cop bad cop with him and varadkar

    It'll come down to the CMO anyhow politicians just talking sh1te to appease the public



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,640 ✭✭✭ Don't Chute!


    Ok so after over two years of government kite flying and people like you telling us this that and the other won’t happen only for it to then happen we are now supposed to believe that no, no, no THIS time it’s different? I don’t think so. People are worried and they absolutely should be, after all they STILL haven’t done a single thing to improve the health service and as we all know that’s what this is all about, keeping the heat off the government and the HSE for their continued incompetence.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,752 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    It'll surely come down to intensive care numbers

    Lots of workplace disruption now but we're living with it

    The politicians though are annoying as fukk cos they keep commenting on unknowns and decisions outside their expertise

    Anyone ask the question why is the health service been upgraded ?

    Nope just do nothing and blame retail workers and the likes. People out living there lives etc



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,752 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    Theyll have some answer ready about plans or reviews or enquiries usually

    Nothing ever gets done

    Didn't varadkar or Martin say ICU was the criteria for restrictions so the whole country is over a barrel over a few ICU spots



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,752 ✭✭✭ kirk.


    Sounds like they don't know MM and LV are saying the opposite to each other

    Sounds like they're just trying to stay relevant and kite flying

    MM is saying advisory plus vaccination so i reckon they'll push for advisory on masks and vaccination

    Fatigue will set in if they keep shuffling mandatory restrictions I reckon but if they pull off an 'all in this together' coup I reckon that's the way to go

    The PUP won't be €350 per week that's for sure

    The new Chief Medical Officer said today that we need to forget about testing at home now.

    So people still buying antigen testing are not only wasting their money during a cost of living crisis, but also acting against the medical advice.

    Hang on, I could say exactly the same about 'people like you'. December and January were full of posters saying we're never getting out of this/restrictions are going to be harsher, when I said the opposite. Guess what? I was right.

    You're right about government and HSE incompetence though, I'll give you that.
