Calls for Minister for Children Roderic O'Gorman to resign..

Depends what you mean. If a "straight" minister was photographed with Jeffrey Epstein I actually think it would be a much bigger story than this. Maybe the story can spun another way. Should Roderic be associated with a known "racist" and "transphobe"? Not my words, but those of the UK National Uni

Graham Linehan banned from twitter for questioning "trans ideology"

No, censorship is not unique to governments. You can even self-censor yourself. As the internet giants continue to monopolise what we read and post, their politics/biases will continue to become more controversial. He wasn't banned for that. In this instance, he reportedly tweeted “men aren’t wome

The Joe Rogan Experience Podcasts

Have you heard Biden's speeches? Having a stammer doesn't explain rambling nonsense, or forgetting key details like he's running for President not the senate etc. I've nothing against Biden, but I get the impression that now that he's the candidate against Trump, any legitimate criticism of him will

Royal Canal Greenway

Is it open to the public? You think they’d want to keep people off the cross country course anyway. I’ve heard of people having a look at the old abbotstown house and graveyard etc. Didn’t think it was officially open to wander around. Back to the original post, had a canal wander from Castleknock

Dark Czech beer in Ireland

Haven't seen a dark Czech beer in Ireland in years. Tesco had Krusovice Dark and McHughs in Kilbarrack had Budvar dark, years ago. German Dunkels seem more common

Relaxation of restrictions Part II

Sensible people are asking at what point do the restrictions do more long-term damage to human life than death from the virus, and what can be done to chart a new course, e.g. phased opening up, going back to work and maintaining some social distancing, continuing to protect the elderly. Its actuall

Relaxation of restrictions Part II

Pathetic that they can't outline a phased exit strategy. Its easier to keep the lockdown going. Less risk to their career, covid deaths/cases fall, they still get paid

Relaxation of restrictions Part II

Not having jobs to go back to, not having funding for public services. Inevitable cuts and tax rises. You don't think theres more suffering (and deaths from other causes) coming?

What will the economy look like in 6 months time?

That sounds like a vague political slogan. Austerity doesn’t sound nice, but what’s the alternative? Presumably borrowing lots of money from somwhere, and then hoping the economy recovers?

The Tipping Point

It’s a serious question. But there’s no political gain in addressing it. So more may indeed die from the consequences of the ongoing global lockdown. David McWilliams is one Irish person who I’ve heard publically reference this tipping point - but he’s not going dive into this one as it still seems

What if there is no cure?

There’s never been a disease that killed everyone, obviously! BUT, ASSUMING THE OP IDEA THAT THERES NO VACCINE AND REINFECTION IS POSSIBLE People have to eat so you can’t live in a lockdown forever unless you can do subsistence farming, and have a gun to protect your crops/equipment from the urban

Anyone willing to admit they're already starting to relax restrictions?

The government need to explain how the lockdown will end. Even sensible people will be become disillusioned with it as they know the longer it goes on the closer the Great Depression abyss looms. At least other governments abroad are trying to do this. Austria, Denmark etc

Relaxation of restrictions Part II

Yes, alongside the recession cut-backs on public service. And people forced to cancel their costly health insurance. I think we’ll look back and think the Swedish approach globally would have been the best overall for mortality rates
