    Another 90s hasbeen joins Jim Corr, ratlicking all over the place for attention and relevance. The drugs were either very good, or very bad.

            What you are looking for is a liberal party, but not so popular historically in Ireland for their laissez-faire attitude

          2. Daisy Chainsaw

            Muzzle? Would you ever go have that enema! It might clear you out and stop you spouting bullplop.

            The fear and nonsense that wearing face masks to reduce contagion of an airborne disease is actually part of a global plot to… to…. I don’t know, make Trump look bad? Anyone with half a brain should be against that.

          4. Nigel

            So being a bit rude about conspiracy-fueled authoritarianism is the same as conspiracy-fueled authoritarianism, just as the idea that wearing masks reduces the spread of airborne diseases is as much a conspiracy as the idea that Trump is going to save us from baby-eating paedophile illuminati. God save us from these keen political minds.

            We don’t do clickbait (scientifically proven) and, while I can’t speak for everyone at Broadsheet, I know with almost absolute certainty none of us regard our readers as peasants.

            Fear and nonsense? The anti-maskers are telling people their children are gonna die from wearing a mask.

          1. Nigel

            Yes, the left mostly think wearing masks will reduce the spread of airborne disease, the right mostly think it’s a plot to microchip everyone through forced vaccinations, classic horseshoe effect there.

        eh, Daisy has pretty much always been – attacking other women based on their physical atttributes, etc.

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          One post about Adele having a stupid hairdo that doesn’t suit her isn’t “always”… but that might explain your posting routine.

          Nice to know I’ve another stalker though. Sit, Ubu, sit.

          1. Daisy Chainsaw

            Find another post where I insult a woman “based on their physical attributes”, seeing as you say I “pretty much always” do.

            And maybe remember that you posted as Pat Mustard too.

      Yep freedom not to wear a mask and spread their virus
      It’s about infecting others

      A fine freedom

      Much like the person who decides I will wear a mask and have the decency not to spread a deadly virus to others That I do not know I might just have

      I wonder in the days of the Black Death the reception Liam (I think I am john Lennon)Gallagher Would have if he visited a plague free village what sort of wonder wall he would face from the locals trying to stop the spread
      He really is pops postural

      Maybe anyone not wearing one should be lifted and placed in an area where they wait untill they are tested Like choke park

      Hopefully taking weeks standing in line

    1. Daisy Chainsaw

      No, it’s just a great insult… And good to know that it passes the BS naughty words filter.

  2. goldenbrown

    I think that’s just the local police
    if it was the Policia Nacional they’d have been cracking heads

    also the second-last person on earth I’d take any instruction from in any subjectmatter is Liam Gallagher

  3. Junkface

    The video posted by John McAfee, isn’t he in prison for murder in Honduras? I think there was a documentary about it.
    He’s another loon.

  4. broadbag

    They didn’t exactly chase the police away, they ambled away with their pride hurt, hardly the overthrow of the ”police state” we keep hearing about.

  5. Lilly

    ‘It’s funny how the gobtit doesn’t wanna know bout the greatest band ever slags it of all year round as he’s moved on but soon as there’s a few quid to be made he’s all fucking ears best thing since sautéed tofu LFUKING x’

    Is Liam Gallagher tweeting about his brother?

    I wear a mask for the same reason I don’t fart in a crowded room, I don’t mind the smell of my own, but others might appreciate it if I didn’t share.
    Anti makers are the equivalent of the person that lets a nose curling, eggy, silent one and sneakily leaves the room.

    1. GiggidyGoo

      Silent, sneaky, eggy, but it also needs to be heavier than air so that it can work its way down the leg of the pants (or dress) and linger near the floor where the movement of many feet spreads it into a rich mixture of turned up noses and suspicion.
      It’s even better to do it in a foreign country at the bar, and have the locals berate you in broken english. But never leave the room.

    2. f_lawless

      The reason you wear a mask is to avoid potentially offending other people’s sensibilities? Fair enough but have you considered a name change?

      Skeptic – “a person inclined to question or doubt accepted beliefs.”

      1. SOQ

        Actually I get that- the fear has been so instilled that anyone who do not comply is a threat- it is how bullying works.

        Do what I say or else except in this case, ‘or else’ means absolutely nothing.

        1. Daisy Chainsaw

          It’s not “Fear”. It’s use of common sense, like securing the lid on a takeaway coffee or looking both ways when crossing the road.

          1. f_lawless

            Maybe it’s more comforting for some to perceive things in terms of black and white and to reflexively trust in authority but I don’t think in this case it’s based in reality.

            The Irish government’s decision to enforce mask-wearing long after the peak of the pandemic here coincided with the WHO’s policy reversal on masks.

            Those paying attention, already were aware that up to that point the clinical evidence – ie. the numerous randomised control trials that had been conducted in recent years – indicated that mask wearing was not effective in preventing the community spread of respiratory viruses during a pandemic. They knew the WHO had reviewed this collection of evidence in 2019 and concluded the same.

            So why then, did they suddenly reverse their recommendations in July 2020 off the back of new research which wasn’t a randomised control trial and therefore was of a lower standard of evidence (more susceptible to bias)?

            Suspicions seemed to be confirmed when the BBC’s health correspondent, Deborah Cohen, wrote that various sources of hers had told her the WHO committee reviewing the evidence on masks were not going to change their position but did so due to political lobbying. “We put this to the WHO and they did not deny” she claimed.

          2. Daisy Chainsaw

            The only people obsessing over “muzzling” and “fear” are antimaskers. Why does a face covering cause such fear for the easily manipulated?

          3. bisted

            …in fairness, the obsession with masks by the pro-sickness people is amusing in that it detracts from the more dangerous quackery they have been spreading…

          4. f_lawless

            Not willing or able to address the points I made. That’s fine I understand it’s a distressing issue to confront

          5. f_lawless

            To recap:

            1. The randomised control trials conducted so far on masks found that they weren’t effective during a pandemic. The WHO reviewed 10 in 2019. Their conclusion:

            Ten RCTs were included in the meta-analysis, and there was no evidence that face masks are effective in reducing transmission of laboratory-confirmed influenza. “

            2. The BBC’s health correspondent, Deborah Cohen, claimed her sources told her that the WHO endorsed masks in July 2020 only due to political lobbying


            Can you explain why you feel those points are irrelevant/crazy?
