I spent my afternoon avoiding horse shit between doing work in the field behind the gardem and going for a walk up to the leadmines. :thumbdown:

You're right. It's like the end of May again. However I had to go over to my mother with shopping earlier and the M50 was absolutely deserted. Local villages seem to have a bit of life around coffee shops etc but it's the connecting routes which are deserted. That means people aren't travelling between localities which, one would think, will limit the spread to an extent.
My own local village only had a grocer, butcher, baker, 2 coffee shops and the local Centra open now during the day. Once you shut all the barbers, beauticians and hairdressers, the locality seems to become a ghost town, even with the daily school traffic.
Yep. VEry much end of lockdown. It is bank holiday weekend mind, but I still think the mood is different than last time. Non where near the same level of fear and suspicion in the supermarket either. Which is good IMO but we'll be told we've sinned and need to do a few Hail Mary's.

So despite pages to the contrary the fall you all say they can't claim actually dates to when NPHET moved.

Which makes sense as they are trusted more than the Government.

You all want to have your cake and eat it as usual. Which is a position I have lots of experience occupying.

NPHET lost face when they got initial rebuke from Leo.

They knew though they had over 60% of the population behind their recommendations so could keep pushing the government for level 5. Tony was back as well and we all know his ego by now that he wasn't for turning. He knew eventually the government had to go with majority public opinion.

The government were in the shit had they done nothing and the numbers in hospitals and ICUs went the wrong away. The public wouldn't blame NPHET, they would blame Micheal and Donnelly.

The public opinion over time will go more and more against NPHET's advise as the fatigue becomes unbearable. When it does the media will reflect it. When the media reflect the public opinion, the government will take the power back from NPHET.

This is pretty much why we are on level 5 IMO. Everyone was essentially behaving normally on level 2/3 so they bumped it to level 5 so that people might take it somewhat seriously (but they knew non one was going to behave anything close to the same as during the first lockdown). Everyone is just ignoring the travel restrictions completely as far as I can see.
If people took it any way seriously then we could be on level 2 and have pubs open etc.

And the reason is that people aren't stupid. They see the hospitals are coping, they hear the death figures. They know this isn't a new plague.

Mullet I watched the Six Days War one which turned.out to be a history of middle Eastern conflict involving Israel from the 40's to the 80's. Had the American narrator problem of COMING 26TH OF DECEMBER IS ISRAEL IN REVENGE OF THE FALLEN. However he actually doesn't speak too much as there are so many brilliant interviews. Most important figures in the states, Israel and various Arab countries are interviewed. Watched the Sherman one as well. Was class. Which one is the Serbia one? I see a death of Yugoslavia and Fall of Milosovic
Watch both.

Death of Yugoslavia is the one I meant though.

This signals, however, that a major public education campaign may be needed to reassure people about the safety of the vaccine. Taoiseach Micheál Martin and senior doctors may need to be photographed getting the jab
I think we can all guess what the reaction will be if that happens.

I’d second “The Death of Yugoslavia “ as recommended viewing and one of the most detailed and comprehensive war documentaries you’re ever likely to see . I actually watched the whole series twice , when it came out and again before I visited the Balkans last year . I haven’t seen “The Fall of Milosevic “ might give it a go today.

I think its actually shit being off right now, especially with the clocks going back f**king with sleep. I don’t recall a period of my life with such a prolonged feeling of creeping anxiety all that’s to a needless and ill judged policy of perpetual lockdowns. I’ve been focusing on exercise but too much time at home is a real headfuck for me.

I'm kinda banking on the idea that numbers will have seriously improved after 4 weeks and they'll ease things a little. Maybe not fully back to level 2/3, but it'll be less restrictive.

The effects of going to level 3 are presumably beginning to be felt, another few weeks and the serious drop from 5 will kick in.

I'm glad I'm still working. Gets me out of the house and somewhere else.

It's very monotonous alright but as I was saying yesterday the clock suits me and the madra. I think they will open up early sometimes and then Leo comes out with the mad shit about people selling knickers and I am not so sure
I think there’s a mental health timebomb coming, it has already started but people deprived of their usual social and physical outlets, combined with being stuck indoors in bad weather, inevitable fights with family, and anxiety over health and finances - it’s not going to end well.

Philip Nolan was quite clear that they want fewer than 100 cases per day for some reason known only to himself. Unless the politicians wrestle back control of the country, we ain’t coming out of lockdown any time soon.

I'm guessing they have sold the 'fewer than 100 cases' thing as meaning we can drop our guard somewhat for a few weeks to have some semblance of a normal Christmas but they expect cases to be well up by end of Dec, hence the rolling lockdowns.

More than 1-200 cases a day and we might not even make it to Christmas before it hits the 1000/day. Again, my guess at their thinking.

I agree, schools have closed here so we are off this week, lots of talk we will be off next week and then throughout the year all calendared holidays get extended, but i'd far rather be in all day working. Productivity is off the cliff too :thumbdown:
