High Paying Jabs

at

Yesterday.

A Facebook message sent by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to the EU/G20 video conference on efforts to find a #COVID_19 vaccine.

Ireland has pledged €18m to GAVI, the vaccine alliance which includes the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the World Bank, the vaccine industry and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Meanwhile…

Seemed to go well.

            You’re losing the run of yourself altogether GG.

            I have long suspected Cian of working in the HSE, despite his protests to the contrary, but calling him Simon is just unfair.

          2. millie in quarantine

            Well that proves it beyond all reasonable doubt.

            Burn him at stake, so.

        I don’t have one at the moment. Might have a magic roundabout of them in a few weeks mind you.

        1. ReproBertie

          Well Ireland has a Taoiseach at the moment and sticking your fingers in your ears and saying “Not my Taoiseach” just because you don’t like him wont change that.

          1. GiggidyGoo

            As I say, he’s not my Taoiseach and shouldn’t be spending my money on his own glorification. The last election gave him a resounding kickingand as far as I can see, 75%+ would agree with me.

          2. ReproBertie

            Except he is the Taoiseach until the Dáil can agree a new one. As such he has the authority of the office which includes the authority to spend money. Should all social welfare payments be stopped until a new government be formed?

            I didn’t vote for him or FF but the next Taoiseach will still be the Taoiseach and my not voting for them or disagreeing with their policies won’t stop them spending money on those policies.

    That Jackie comment just doesn’t compute with me, ‘our bodies our choice isn’t that what we voted for…’

    followed by

    ‘we will pray for you…’

    1. Brother Barnabas

      rachel ni faolain’s “Not happening on my watch” is a curious one too

    1. GiggidyGoo

      Most of the posts have nothing to do with ‘anti-vaxxers’, more to do with anti-wastage of our money, and questioning whose pockets it’s going into.

      Gates & Co. are worth more than the economy which is ‘Ireland’ – which is in debt – yet the Boy Waster contrives another video of himself to try push himself, and makes a money-drop in the process (yours and mine)

      1. ReproBertie

        Rachel Ní Faolóin – people who want global mandatory vaccines
        Sarah Curran – I will not be forced to take this vaccine
        Hazel Hall – ain’t gonna make me take a vaccine or give it to my kids
        Mel McLoughlin – I don’t want a vaccine for something that doesn’t exist. it’s all a conspiracy

        That’s 4 out of the 7 posts being anti-vaccine. 4/7 is most of the posts. We could push it to 5 if we consider Jackie McLoughlin’s “My body my choice” to be an anti-vaccination line.

        1. GiggidyGoo

          Sarah Curran, Mel McLoughin and Jackie McLoughlin are as you say. The rest have questioned the money aspect / who is benefiting.

      2. newsjustin

        Why do you think Bill and Melinda Gates are hoping to come up with a vaccine? Do you think he wants more money?

        1. GiggidyGoo

          If you are hinting that he is doing it out of the goodness of his heart, then why is Varadkar squandering our money? Gates can well afford this without the need for the Boy waster to ‘pledge’ our money.
          What’s your answer?

          1. Rob_G

            Why would Ireland not contribute its share of the money for vaccine that it will benefit from?

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Show me the calculations of ‘our share’ instead of a plucked-out-of-the-nether-regions figure.

          3. Rob_G

            I have neither the time nor the inclination – why don’t you write to the Dept of the Taoiseach, if it concerns you so much?

            The cost of the lockdown will be measured in the tens of billions – 18 million seems like the deal of the century to prevent another lockdown happening in the near future.

          4. Rob_G

            You’re the one claiming the 18 mil is an outrage – go do your own calculations.

  2. george

    Bill Gates, one of the richest people in the world, wants to get rich out of vaccines. That’s why he gives away so much money.

  3. millie in quarantine

    I see the conspiracy theorists are out in force this morning. And what a lovely hay-fevery one it is too.

  4. SOQ

    Its the indemnity thing I don’t get. Whoever comes up with this vaccine is going to make an absolute fortune so why shouldn’t they be liable for any damage it causes?

    Also, when the true scale of this infection is known, those people will already have immunity so is it going to be forced on them too?

      1. ReproBertie

        If that turns out to be true then a vaccine won’t work. That said, the scientific opinion on acquired immunity is changing as they review more data on this virus.

    1. Cian

      This.
      If the company that creates the vaccine makes a profit from it – they should be held liable for it.

      If they refuse to accept liability then they should have to either provide it at cost or not get a patent on it so anyone can create it for free.

      1. GiggidyGoo

        As in the US labs, and their indemnity clauses in the Cervical Cancer debacle?

        1. Cian

          What are you talking about? The US labs are liable, and have paid out, for the Cervical Cancer misdiagnoses (€ millions per case). The HSE has accepted liability for not informing the women in a timely fashion and have paid out (€10K or €30K per case – if I remember).

          1. Cian

            What is your point?
            In his Scoping Inquiry Dr. Scally explains that there will always be a margin of error involved in cancer screening – results known as “false negatives”. Thus, a number of women will always be reported as having no evidence of HPV in their cells. This does not indicate negligence on behalf of the laboratories carrying out the test.

            That would require an indemnity clause.

            The labs don’t have indemnity clauses that cover their own negligence.

          2. GiggidyGoo

            Conveniently overlooking the ‘……as well as dispute resolution mechanisms……’ part.
            Cimon

          3. Cian

            Right; I am Simon Harris, and I say that Cian is correct and there are no indemnity clauses.

  5. Rosette of Sirius

    Ah yes. ‘News’ brought to you by the American Family Association. A reliable and decent Christian fundamentalist news source devoid of bigotry, racism and have definitely never ever been classed as a hate group…

    1. bisted

      …I can understand wanting to earn obscene profits…or philanthropy…or immortality bestowed on whoever discovers a vaccine…what I can’t understand is the motivation of anti-vaccs…

      1. V-19

        me neither

        Although, a certain someone one time levelled the risk of the more serious side effects (which there are) when they all come together alongside that of say,
        the evidence a Jury would need to be certain of a ‘beyond doubt’ conviction.

        The enough there for reasonable doubt to exist made sense to me, and it still does

        In fairness the case made was subtle, understandable, elequent and listenable
        nothing ranty or flaming, and had none of the great big Soros globalist Clinton’esque deep State Corruption Conspiracy stuff about it.

        And there is some merit in wanting to balance personal wellbeing v a beyond doubt promise

        But that’s what the legal profession rely on I suppose

        1. SOQ

          Is claims against pharma not sand boxed into vaccine courts and the amounts capped V?

          This is not an area I have really looked into but my understanding is that year on year- there is more vaccines coming on stream so what is being injected into a child this year is way more than when we were that age- so therefore also, an increase in the risks.

          I fully understand why a now parent would have concerns and I do not trust big Pharma’s motives- just look at the swine flu vaccine for example.

          1. V-19

            Not getting into it Same’oh

            I was just mentioning that I was party an interesting take on the matter
            and it gave me food for thought that, imo, was worth sharing

            From that same discussion btw, about two and half years go, or more
            I did predict that schools were going to be making vaccinations mandatory for enrolment

            Anyway, I’m ok with the decisions I’ve made for myself and the teenager
            up to everyone else to make their own minds up
            Their bodies, their choice
