What does he think a Citizens Assembly is?

Christ, he sounds like he'd show up in a toga, or dressed as Pericles.

Ruairi Brugha seems to be a buddy of McDonkey's. He's all over the shop - we should have eliminated it even though he acknowledges that we couldn't really.
Those who advocated elimination have refrained from saying “I told you so”.

1 ICU death in the last week.

This can come on very quickly and depending on the age/underlying condition, I'm guessing most deaths don't make it to ICU or there's no point because it'd be pointless. About 20% of our ICU admissions have died, I believe. So 'only' 90 of our total death toll.

Ok so we can possibly assume they're dying in regular beds or even in nursing homes/at home?
Which then begs the question - despite all the measures in place, it's still nigh on impossible to shield the older cohorts of society... the ones we're allegedly protecting by imposing all the restrictions.

Can't blame them. They have a huge portfolio and quite a few fit out & construction projects underway. They could very well be feeling the pinch from the banks at the moment with a lot of money going out and not a lot coming in.
There's only so much money you can make out of a Wowburger portakabin.

More propaganda ... make everyone nervous and scared ... for a vanishingly difficult disease to recognise and measure accurately ...

But they are media who are more interested in clickbait than being genuinely informative ...

No they’re not wrong about everything. I fully agree with social distancing and plenty of other things they do.

They are not above criticism though.

You're being very smug which isn't helping.

It's okay for the likes of us working in tech that have stable incomes and have already experienced our best years.

The lads on here frustrated are a lot younger than us and are in fairness probably missing out on their best years.

We are where we are and will undoubtedly get through this but more empathy and less arrogance would be better.

You can’t really shield a nursing home can you. Most people in there - not all but most - are waiting to die, any serious infection could finish them off. Covid certainly did that and there might be a levelling off of stats over the next 3 years as a result. The idea that we can shield nursing homes without making them into basically high dependency units akin to hospitals and thus greatly reducing the quality of life for their last remaining time on the planet.

There are very few business owners on here. Just wait a few months revenue, vat and rates due - there will be an avalanche of business closures and the recession will be grim. They might start to get it then but again, a lot on here are insulated from that

Nah he’s just a mouth. He was very quick to point out that 40% of hospitality workers don’t pay tax but shuts up beyond that. He’ll be moaning when his taxes go up and will come out with the usual dull language about spongers etc. It’s an “I’m alright Jack” approach to life, very basic economic knowledge.

As for myself, my criticism is well beyond that. I really don’t give a fudge if pubs can’t open personally. Restaurants are annoying but the the biggest thing for me personally has been the enforced quarantine and long term impact on aviation. But you’ll note that I don’t really complain that I had to spend two weeks at home doing fudge all after travelling, it’s a minor inconvenience really.

But you’ll note that I don’t really complain that I had to spend two weeks at home doing fudge all after travelling, it’s a minor inconvenience really.
We can only hope that the EU position, which Martin has said Ireland will comply with, will open up aviation within the EU a lot more, with agreed mitigation measures where necessary.

I miss going on long haul holidays especially to the SH during our winter. That was my life before these travel restrictions.

1st world problems though.

You're being very smug which isn't helping.

It's okay for the likes of us working in tech that have stable incomes and have already experienced our best years.

The lads on here frustrated are a lot younger than us and are in fairness probably missing out on their best years.

We are where we are and will undoubtedly get through this but more empathy and less arrogance would be better.
Nah he’s just a mouth. He was very quick to point out that 40% of hospitality workers don’t pay tax but shuts up beyond that. He’ll be moaning when his taxes go up and will come out with the usual dull language about spongers etc. It’s an “I’m alright Jack” approach to life, very basic economic knowledge.

As for myself, my criticism is well beyond that. I really don’t give a fudge if pubs can’t open personally. Restaurants are annoying but the the biggest thing for me personally has been the enforced quarantine and long term impact on aviation.

When is that decision due?

More gibberish as you can’t debate. I look forward to your future “economic” musings.
Yeah Iarmhi ..... I'm the one being arrogant here

I've already been on the record stating I don't think NPHET are infallible ...... but I've zero tolerance for 20-something trainee lawyers telling the rest of us that the NATIONAL. PUBLIC. HEALTH. EMERGENCY. TEAM are a shower of clowns and spoofers.

There's lots of nuance to this for sure, but the one black and white issue is that neither me nor Brock habe the medical credentials to question the experts on this .... yet one of us is turning it into a crusade it seems
