It is so easy to score points against the establishment at the moment. You could probably pick any house in Dublin, make up a tenuous connection to 'the people' and start a controversy about it and a certain group would lap it up.

My sister was telling me about that. Apparently lots of universities in Scotland (dunno about the rest of the UK) have a financial model which has a lot of income from college residences. Consequently, they were very keen to have students have some on-campus work, so that they'd pay for accomodation, rather than just distance learning from home to start with.

As soon as they all moved in, massive outbreaks happened. Mostly inconsequential, given the ages, but a festering reservoir of Covid ready to get out into the surrounding communities. Decision was made to can all in-person lecturing and go fully online and they had to force students to stay put.

Mess all around.

Today on Newstalk Curtaintwitcher, sorry I mean lunchtime: People phoning in complaining about maasks not being worn on the streets in Galway.
People sitting outside, the nerve.
Then a conversation about how people are perceived in this country who don't drink by choice. Some biddy rings in saying she doesn't drink and how it's not a big issue and how she was expected to be the designated driver, yadda yadda ya. Another few sentences later and it turns out she's an alcoholic and has been off the bottle for 25 years. Yeah ok fine, you don't really fall into the category under discussion here.

Finally a good rant from Jess Kelly about schoolkids not wearing masks on the Luas yet she can't go for a coffee after work with the rest of the Newstalk team.

Meanwhile Andrea Gilligan talking about the "skuuls" and the "ruuuls"

It really is a joke of a station. :lol:

You're really marking yourself out as an imbecile these days aren't you

Check the thread

1/
Many argued there was no proof that pubs were a problem. Data was produced from the CDC showing they were. Brock came out and said "but they're not Irish pubs". Now we have profs that covid has indeed been spreading via Irish pubs.

2/
Many are still arguing to shelter the old and let the virus rip through the younger population. If you can't see or accept that fact then you're blind or genuinely stupid. This virus fvcks up some of the young and healthy cohort too, so those being so blasé about it need to think again.

3/
Ah why am I bothering ...... you've proven yourself a fool at this stage
No the argument was they had no proof of their own (and they admitted that). And again it was really about whether the situation in pubs restaurants was bad enough that it warranted what is effectively a shutdown of the industry.

I haven't seen anyone argue to let it rip. None. If you're going to make that claim you should back it up. The reality is that we all accept some restricitions/measures but with limits. Dipshits like you though need your opponent to be the abslute worst hence constantly mispresenting people.

You won't bother because you've got nothing. You can't back it up.

Do you reckon all the socially-f**ked up people in this world are all thinking, “Finally, this is our time!” and are all trying to out-do each other with f**ked up ideas and trying to scare the shit out of normal folk so that ultimately, they end up as f**ked up as the ones that are f**ked up now?

Some wet pubs were serving people outside the premises with no food in the Dame Lane and Aungier St areas Saturday night.

I think that's fine and wet pubs should be opened up to outside seating in Dublin if the science says that sitting in the open air massively decreases the risk of infection.

The biggest benefit of being outside is that the virus dissipates quickly in the air and doesn't linger. Obviously does little if you're hit by a droplet initially. So proper distancing is fairly secure but crowds less so.

In fairness it was all table seating and people were not standing holding pints . It looked very European actually.

We're starting to see a lot of outdoor dining on the streets which is lovely to see. When the rain comes though they'll need tent awnings

100% spackers with stupid ideas about life in general are getting stuck in. Lots of anti booze/craic stuff seeping in. In every generation pioneers and prohibitionists have their day. Feminists are getting stuck in telling the young ones to not be riding. The hard left is all over the place on it but that is because government is out coviding them so has left them fück all space to breath.

Take the word ‘trajectory’, something we have heard a great deal of this past week. This is a ballistic term that suggests a degree of certainty. It is claimed our ‘trajectory’ shows Britain following Spain – and we may be only a matter of weeks behind them.

We have heard a great deal about ‘waves’, too. Even on Friday, Mr Johnson was using the term to describe what is going on. We are ‘seeing a second wave coming in’, said our bumbling PM.

Waves, of course, are solid bodies of water which hit rhythmically in one go and can be seen coming from afar.
For a scientist who specialises in "evidence-based" action he talks some absolute s***e.

We coined a phrase to distinguish between pubs that wanted to serve food and those that didn't. This was to avoid a longer description when distinguishing. It'll fall away, and mostly has, from our lexicon soon enough.

was in Galway middle of August with family and all of us noticed how everyone on shop street (including pretty much everyone in the 15 - 25 age group) were wearing masks ; we were outside so we weren't wearing masks and were the odd ones out ; wore them the 2nd time

The Taoiseach said however that Minister McGrath’s review would also look “more widely.”

He explained: “For example, I've long been concerned at the fact that parties and movements can raise funds and donations. I think that should be examined.”

He told Ms McDonald: “I think your party would have raised $15million over the years in the United States. I worry about that, and the big vested interests that money has been raised from.”


It came from “construction and financial elites in the United States that you seem to have no difficulty with,” he told her.

The Taoiseach said he believed that referendums “have been influenced by large amounts of money, the origins of which we do not know.

“I think that's a more fundamental area for our democracy, because some people fund commemorative projects celebrating 1916,” he said. One particular project “was funded by loans from abroad,” he said.

“There was a political agenda, attached to that as well. It’s a concern when projects, organised by political parties but separate from them, seem to be funded by American money with a political agenda.”

He told Ms McDonald: “That seems to have been the case in the alternative to the national commemoration 1916, and the agenda of a continuing link from 1916 to the war in the North, and the conflict and the modern mayhem that ensued - and that you continue to endorse,.


“These are very serious political issue. You may not think so, but I do. It’s not one rule for one group of politicians and a separate rule for others.”

It needed to be faced up to, “once and for all,” the Taoiseach said.

Ms McDonald did not address the remarks.

Take the word ‘trajectory’, something we have heard a great deal of this past week. This is a ballistic term that suggests a degree of certainty. It is claimed our ‘trajectory’ shows Britain following Spain – and we may be only a matter of weeks behind them.

We have heard a great deal about ‘waves’, too. Even on Friday, Mr Johnson was using the term to describe what is going on. We are ‘seeing a second wave coming in’, said our bumbling PM.

Waves, of course, are solid bodies of water which hit rhythmically in one go and can be seen coming from afar.
For a scientist who specialises in "evidence-based" action he talks some absolute s***e.
He’s the “director” of the “centre for evidence based research” in “Oxford University”. He’s also a “G.P.”, and one of the most high profile “scientists” in the UK.

I think that's fine and wet pubs should be opened up to outside seating in Dublin if the science says that sitting in the open air massively decreases the risk of infection.
The Wet pubs stuff is manipulative shite. Need to stop using the term, it's scare mongering.
I think you need to calm down
You don't think it's weird that we're the only country that refers to them as wet pubs?
I think it’s real weird the French don’t use English alright
You don’t go scooping down the brasserie d’eau?

The Taoiseach said however that Minister McGrath’s review would also look “more widely.”

He explained: “For example, I've long been concerned at the fact that parties and movements can raise funds and donations. I think that should be examined.”

He told Ms McDonald: “I think your party would have raised $15million over the years in the United States. I worry about that, and the big vested interests that money has been raised from.”


It came from “construction and financial elites in the United States that you seem to have no difficulty with,” he told her.

The Taoiseach said he believed that referendums “have been influenced by large amounts of money, the origins of which we do not know.

“I think that's a more fundamental area for our democracy, because some people fund commemorative projects celebrating 1916,” he said. One particular project “was funded by loans from abroad,” he said.

“There was a political agenda, attached to that as well. It’s a concern when projects, organised by political parties but separate from them, seem to be funded by American money with a political agenda.”

He told Ms McDonald: “That seems to have been the case in the alternative to the national commemoration 1916, and the agenda of a continuing link from 1916 to the war in the North, and the conflict and the modern mayhem that ensued - and that you continue to endorse,.


“These are very serious political issue. You may not think so, but I do. It’s not one rule for one group of politicians and a separate rule for others.”

It needed to be faced up to, “once and for all,” the Taoiseach said.

Ms McDonald did not address the remarks.
:lol:

Be careful what you wish for Mary Lou!

Lovely, absolutely lovely.

I'm not sure why you felt the need to put his titles & qualifications in quotes. I'm not disputing any of them. However he is categorically talking s***e when he defines a wave as a "solid body of water" & limits trajectory to ballistics (I agree that was it's original derivation but it has had a more general meaning that can include probability & uncertainty in engineering for years, let alone general language).

Coincidentally a term associated with the outbreak of the virus and the eating of live animals. Solo effort.

I'm liking what I've been seeing from Micheal lately.

He's great when he goes on the attack like that. Great when it's on Mary Lou.

More please Micheal.
