I’m Not Confused, You’re Confused


Taoiseach Michaél Martin

This afternoon.

Responding to Sinn Féin’s finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty’s comment that there is a ‘dysfunction and chaos’ in Government that is undermining public confidence….

‘..Micheál Martin insisted “the overall message is very, very clear.”

He said the measures announced by the Government on Tuesday are aimed at ensuring there is a balance of keeping people at work and keeping community transmission as low as possible.

Yesterday, the Green Party leader and Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan acknowledged that there are contradictions in the advice relating to limits on indoor gatherings compared with schools having indoor classes of 20-30 pupils.

However, the Taoiseach said “there is no confusion about the fundamental issue” of trying to protect lives and livelihoods and stop the increase in cases of the virus…The numbers have gone up substantially in the last two weeks compared to a month earlier. That’s it. The numbers have gone up. We have to respond,.”

    How can you tell people its unsafe to have 7 people indoors for a birthday party, but fine to have 49 indoors for a mass or a wedding?

    How is it safer to have a big group of lads watching a GAA match on TV in a pub instead of outdoors, in a stand at very low capacity?


    The rules are completely contradictory nonsense, and getting worse every week.

    This also not even touching on the point that the curve is flattened. ICUs have massive amounts of spare capacity. And its impossible to fully stamp out the virus. So what are we even locking down for?

    Himself, Donnelly and the NPHET have as much a variety stock of ideas as the online Argos catalogue has a variety of product in stock. And both still spam you.
