They're not opening sales to the public 'till the second of July.

I can't wait for a couple of pints before a match, followed by the match itself, followed by a meal in one of the many restaurants between Ballsbridge, Donnybrook and Ranelagh.

They underreported yesterday by over a hundred. Should be back around cases matching positive swabs now.

The canal by the Bernard Shaw absolutely packed this evening with people out eating and drinking. It's completely crazy that outdoor dining is still banned.

Its absolute madness and asking for trouble at this stage.

There was a different tone today after a couple of weeks of very positive messaging (vaccine issues aside). I would have said a few weeks ago the country was starting to boil but has calmed down with some moves in the right direction. There is funking zero appetite in the main public for stepping back from reopening as far as I can see.

Anyways, as I have said, its all over rover once NI opens.

Reading the accounts of the presser it's all about a "spike" in cases, and the "R number" moving upwards towards 1.

Which is mendaciousness at best when we know that today's positivity rate was 2.5%, and that the 3 day, 5 day, and 7 day positivity rates are all at 2.7%. This really does stink of keeping cases up your sleeve and then using them to paint the picture you want people to see, not what is actually happening.

There's been no cases kept up sleeve, at least not for long. The last few days are higher for positive swabs compared to the same days last week, it's not really a spike though, it's increased testing with similar positivity.

All the media running with the “worrying increase in cases” story this morning. At this stage even a child would know that they’re not reporting the cases honestly. I can’t understand why NPHET are behaving like this - it’s morally and scientifically wrong and they have completely lost the confidence of the people at this stage. Why can’t they be honest and say that they’ve tested more and the the positivity rate is the stable or decreasing?

So the shinners only appointed a Data Protection Officer after they were contacted by the Data Protection Commissioner about their harvesting of personal data. That's a very large fine at the very least, isn't it, and well ensure the DPC goes through them like a dose of salts.

Why have we not prioritised pregnant women for vaccination?
Because there are no clinical studies on pregnant women you absolute fúcking melon.

Imagine the oucry if pharma companies were testing experimental vaccines on pregnant women before clearing in for the gneral population.

The worst thing about this is that there was genuinely a good point that could have been made about the initial composition of NPHET that she fails to get her teeth into.

Rant time.....

Banc Ceannais na hÉireann strike again.

I only recently became aware of this 'Dolphin Trust' swindle when I received a phone call from an extended family member , who has a half a million euro exposure to it, asking me for advice.

It hadn't been on my radar because I usually ignore obvious scams and put them in the part of my brain reserved for e.mails from Nigerian princes etc but I was obliged to do some digging into this.

I believe, just this week, that the story is getting air time at home, Prime time etc.... so the detail are probably well known at this stage but what amazes me , I mean blows my fúcking mind, is the cavalier attitude of the Irish Central Bank to another brazen theft perpetrated in Irish jurisdiction, while they were sitting on their collective, useless arses counting their pension pots.

This scam was fronted by a bunch of cowboys in Kildare and distributed by life/pension brokers all over the Country in return for massive fees. All these firms are regulated entities and yet are not prohibited from selling unregulated products to the public.... What the fúck are the Central doing ?
I am , still, a director of a medium sized regulated firm in Dublin who DOES NOT hold client funds and yet I spend over 20K p.a on legal fees discharging my statutory obligations and responsibilities to the myriad of regulations my firms works under at the Central Banks insistence.

There have been hundreds of billions in assets put onto the balance sheet of Ireland inc from UK and other banking / fund businesses in the lead up and since BREXIT for close to zero return in terms of employment, corporation taxes etc...... I pray to God that someone, somewhere in that shitshow of an outfit is keeping a handle on this or it will make the Depfa/Anglo/AIB debacle look like a tasty appetiser ..........

Rant over.
