Elderly Especially Susceptible



This afternoon.

RTÉ’s Mary Regan tweetz:

Four out of five (82%) Irish adults agree that the Government is doing a good job in handing Covid-19 with “strong agreement” with this far higher among older people, according to Behaviours and Attitude-commissioned survey for RTÉ.

    More propaganda to soften the blow that F-f/g are scheming again and about to announce their new edited public version of their devious private plan. The same hundred year old plan.

    If you believe this then sure, you could be right but let’s at least play one game of high stakes poker together some time…

      Moan, moan moan. Ever stat that proves you wrong, is propaganda. How old are you? What are your party bringing to the table? Nowt. Nothing. You won the election – run the response to the virus. God no. we’ll go into hiding. Surely Mary Lou won the election. Where the eff is she?

          Show me one single conspiracy theory I’ve made..Just one. Please find one.

          Just because I’ve posted something on here before that is too complicated for you to understand or you just don’t agree with does not automatically mean it some kind of conspiracy theory outside of your own head.

          You should be more careful about knee-jerk reactions and spreading lies about people.
          it makes you look stupid. I used to think you were better than that.

            Do you not think that “devious private plan” bangs of conspiracy Joe.
            I like your posts for the most part but they seem to have gone in an odd full-tilt direction of late… or so I see.

      1. :-Joe

        haha.. wow. I don’t know what you’re on or who you suport…

        … but that sounds like the typical eejit response from the F-f/g delusional thinking army when their button is pushed. Automatically assuming the position of anti-SF like a dog on command.

        I’ve never voted for…. – wait a minute, why even bother to dignify this nonsense with a reply.

        Have fun improving your mental health.
        Try not to vote against your own self-interest and the best interest of others..
        I wish you all the best for the future.

        “devious private plan”

        Nope, that’s not conspiratorial at all.

        Come on Joe, I do like yer posts an’ all for the most part.
        I just think you’ve come out with some mad stuff lately, in fairness.

        1. :-Joe

          If you’re accusing me of being a daft conspiracy theorist then I’m going to answer you back.

          Using the words “devious private plan” however slightly exaggerated for a laugh or otherwise and when juxtaposed against “edited public version” when associated with F-f/g policy and actions is fair game.. You are not seriously telling me they never lie saying one thing publicly and another in private and that we’ve never found them out for it before, are you?… The deviousness is hardly the worst part of their many failings.

          Look, you’re best argument to defend them is that they’re the only one single party that although once were divided in two, now it’s just completely for show.. but it’s the only party over the years that we’ve ever had, so what do you expect etc.? It would be a bit like standing up for Goliath though

          It’s also the main reason why they are so corrupt and why, with the truth in hand it’s fair game to stick it to them. Look at the propaganda above that’s also the truth.

          I’ll back off when they cop-on or if someone proves that I’m wrong.
          – I’ve no problem being humbled or admitting I’m wrong. Trust me on that alone.


        2. :-Joe

          Seriously though, tell me what I’ve said that you think is mad?..
          – Not looking to start an unhealthy argument or pick a fight etc.

          I do like a good conspiracy theory though.. It’s a reflection of collective humanity, communication, information and globalisation.. Especially those rare good ones that are proved to be real.


      3. A Person

        Where did I mention conspiracy theory. I said propaganda i.e “More propaganda to soften the blow that F-f/g…..” That’s all you ever comment about. It’s all FF/ FG’s fault. They are wrong about everything. They are not the govt and should not be making decisions. When someone disagrees they have a mental health problem. Eff you, you wee sad man. Where is Mary Lou? Doing eff all, whilst the non-elected govt (who by the way are the govt until a new one is decided) are actually making decisions. SFIRA can’t make decisions as they are led by the Belfast 6 who have never been elected .

        You’re up there with Goo suggesting that mobile phones are the problem.

    2. GiggidyGoo

      Aye B&A – here’s their write-up for FG on their website. (You can see why their poll results will always match their ‘opinion’). Also, are B&A receiving funds for their R&D activities?

      ” There’s positivity about how our political leaders are handling the crisis, which contrasts
      well with response from the US/UK. Varadkar’s statesman like style and skill set are
      hugely comforting in these times.
      • The Irish people are confident that the government are doing ‘everything they can’ to
      handle this crisis. However, the more concerning thought is how much impact will
      their actions really have? When the people in power are powerless. What then? “

    79 percent believe Ireland is reacting better than other countries. The relentless media cheerleading campaign is working so.
    Despite the half-truth being told about testing. Despite the faulty PPE equipment . Despite the lack of foresight and preparation with regard to supplies.Irish people continue to clap each other on the back and slag off the Brits

      1. :-Joe

        lol.. haha.. Ahh..the thought of it..
        – It’s the 2nd time I’ve laughed at that this evening…mercy, please.


        1. GiggidyGoo

          Concannon up to his old tricks – plagiarizing New Zealand’s Prime Minister.
          I suppose the Tooth Fairy will also be nominated by Harris at some stage.

          1. Matt Pilates

            New Zealand’s health minister has been demoted after he flouted the country’s lockdown rules to take his family to the beach.?

  3. Cian

    Bloody snowflakes.
    36% of them are “very anxious” about being unhappy?
    Unhappy? Pity about them.

    The rest of us are anxious about our loved ones getting COVID19 and bloody dying.

    1. Clampers Outside


      They are anxious about what exactly, being the least likely to even get sick at all?

      And another 25% swing the other way and couldn’t care less about anyone else.

      Pfffft! Pity about ’em.

      1. Matt Pilates

        Yep. Particularly as they were instrumental in spreading it and clearly still are. Can an open season be declared on millenials please…

    2. Nigel

      Yeah, cause there’s no mental health factor in all this isolation in the middle of a pandemic.

      1. Clampers Outside

        All that me, me, me style molly coddling of ‘helicopter parenting’ and ‘a prize for everyone’ leaves too many kids without any concept of either failure nor adversity.
        And when faced with a real life issue, they cower with anxiety and fear.
        Next step, prescription meds.

        1. Nigel

          Risible, asiine, generational mental-health shaming nonsense. Would you ever get ahold of yourself with your idiotic ‘kids these days’ ranting.

          1. Clampers Outside

            The next time I hear u on about kids and mental health concerns… I’ll just remember that you wrote that. Good lad.

    1. GiggidyGoo

      Yep, and the influx of Jackeens has begun into Wexford to their holiday homes. No consideration, no sense. It’d be an awful shame if those holiday homes werent available next time they fancy a break.

      1. Matt Pilates

        Agreed. Those homes should be made available to the people in Direct Provision right now.

  4. Some old queen

    Name and shame these incompetent clowns within the HSE whom with big time warnings decided that vulnerable and/or old people and their carers should not be a priority.

    Criminal behaviour- nothing less.
