      Well. For what is worth, it’s not our money. Yet.

      That said.

      4b – even 16b – in the scheme of things is fairly cheap.

      Hahaha.. whatever is left of all that dough… is already baked into the bhoys retirement plans…

      Disaster surveillance (pseudo)capitalism and Oirish cute-hoorism at it’s best, baby…
      All of it still happening right in front of your face…

      “Ok, tell the good folks of Oirland what they’ve won for themselves”…

      WOoooooohhhh…”NOTHING!!”….Woohoo!…….

      – Oh stop it, don’t act like you didn’t know this would happen.. Why bother getting angry?…

      Just keep buying ‘murican junk products exported via asian slave manufacturing, giving up your life for exploitation by their crappy social networks and lapping up their foreign policy morning, noon and night dreaming of their fake but juicy poo poo burgers…

      & don’t forget how important foreign derp derp derp inverstment derp is to the neverending growth and competitiveness derp derp derrrr….p

      Free market neo-liberal economic theory works !

      Wait a minute… they only learned how to skype yesterday, now they have driverless speaker cars driven by a hairy mary bot?..
      -Moore’s law has finally met it’s nemises.

      Elon? Save us from the second coming of oirish neo-catholicism…

        Ahh.. c’mon prince, really?

        Surely, you mean they did the only thing on offer….

        i.e. Taking the only reliable advice of really mature responsible adults, the medical and science professionals… then they applied it half-assed by not imposing an immediate lockdown or at least much faster than it’s happening.

        No mention of any plan to help the most vunerable by boosting their immune system as also mentioned so far only by Prof of biochemistry Luke O’Neill Trinity a few days ago and others that seem to be very hard to hear from for many reasons, -(& Just so you don’t think I’m a f-ing faith crystal merchant or whatever)

        Instead, no problem finding the time and taking the opportunity to create a special Leo TM moment speech that literally does next to nothing but make varad-kerplunk the wannabe tory and his merry band of eejits look slightly better….

        It’s none of my busybodyness who you voted for before but you’re definitely buying the pup now… or are you trying to sell one for someone else?

        Hopefully not, but If problems get really bad and the health system cracks under the pressure.. etc etc. I’d rather not suggest the rest… just wait for the final insult of more austerity policy by this shower of useless invertibrate x.y.z…. -take your pick with the many combinations of expletives they deserve.

        I’m not having a personal go at you from the left or any other political leaning being an independant voter myself but if you can’t see what’s been going on… seriously, they’ve been taking the wee wee for years..

        The head eejit of this cheap amateur facist psychadelic scam is not even democratically elected !!!

        Raise your standards people!

          “Taking the only reliable advice of really mature responsible adults, the medical and science professionals… then they applied it half-assed by not imposing an immediate lockdown or at least much faster than it’s happening. ”

          The steps taken so far have all been based on the “reliable advice of really mature responsible adults, the medical and science professionals”.

          How can you commend them for following the advice and then condemn them for not ignoring that advice and going further than was deemed necessary?

        2. :-Joe

          Ah ReproBertie, not again….

          Last time we went back and forward for ages and literally got nowhere near worth a game of ping-pong…

          I think you better read the comment and my reply to it again, I’m not even sure how to reply to your question. It doesn’t make sense, unless I’m the one missing something?

          :-J

        3. ReproBertie

          I’ll try and use smaller words.

          You said they did the only thing on offer based on the advice of the medical and science professionals but then say they didn’t implement that advice fully.

          Every step taken so far has been on the back of the advice of the medical and science professionals. The HSE and Public Health authorities have not yet called for the closing the borders or a full lock down.

          So which is it? Do you want them to follow the reliable advice of the really mature responsible adults or not?

        4. :-Joe

          Ok wait.. I wasn’t commending them for anything?

          I was pointing out they are still useless yet still trying to play pr games as usual…

          Tinky pinky amateurs… – So dumb it makes me realise I’m in the wrong business but clearly I’m not desperate enough for corrupt easy cash.

          Hmm.. I could really use some extra cash tho?

          EDIT: Ah pumpkins you’ve replied already.. damn timer.

          :-J

          ReproBertie, I think you’re trolling or maybe obsessed with making long chains of conversations….

          Ok here goes… If they strapped a bunch of wild ferrel cats and dogs to a pogo stick and threw it up into the air, those same exact cats and dogs would have to be commended for carrying out the same advice given by the responsible professional adults but not for getting the exact same result.

          At least the cats and dogs bouncing around on a pogo stick would not be interested in pr spin photo op’s and salvaging their ego’s and trying to repair their much cherished legacies and pensions obviously…

          …Therefore, getting out of the way so the lockdown procedures would have happened faster like they should have already, in my opinion anyway.

          Does that make it more clear as to what I’m saying… or have I just made it worse for you?

    As I keep saying, keeping people in a regular income and employment will benefit the real economy 1000x more than FG not doing so and trying to austerity the bollocks off everybody in 6-12 months time when nobody has a job and nobody has cash to spend on the huge amount of services that propped up our ‘full employment’. 4bn, 40bn whatever, just do it!

      Where would Ireland be?

      We had out first death on 11/3; we are on day 11 and have had 0.8 deaths/million;
      Note: with a small population each single death here is deemed “0.2 deaths per million” which makes comparisons to bigger countries less accurate.
      – UK are day 11 with 3.5 deaths/million
      – USA are day 10 with 0.9 deaths/million

        that line in Titanic when the ship designer explains why it will sink ” It is a mathematical certainty.” comes to mind. The virus is here, it is not contained, leo didn’t pull that 15k figure out of the air. we can only hope our hospital staff aren’t incapacitated too soon

    I’m thinking you’re more of a Megadeth type than an artist formally known as…
    – I happen to like a bit of thrash metal too..

    :-J

      1. :-Joe

        Thrash metal is at the height of artistic expression in music..
        – Scientifically proven to be theraputic and it’s avid listeners tend to be more calm and balanced emotionally on average than the typical scando-pop addicted lightweights who are far more likely to flip in a crowd from hidden buried repressed inner emotional turmoil.

        Don’t knock it, till you rock it….

          I liked it when I was a hormone driven frontal cortex missing teenager, can’t stand it now…but sure each to their own
