Taoiseach Micheál Martin at a virtual Plenary Session of the North South Ministerial Council at Government Buildings, Dublin this morning

Minded so he is.

Meanwhile…

Hmm.

    Understand that this post is about the COVID-19 figures, but can someone explain to us what is meant by ‘minded’ in the Irish Independent headline (presumably uttered by Martin)? Minded in Irish parlance is to care for, e.g. ‘I minded my children’.

    Thanks,

    anyone saying hospitality isn’t the problem could take a walk down Camden street tonight and tell me if the pubs look safe. On Wednesday night that whole strip with Camden Bites, Hucks, etc. was rammed. The little smoking areas they have at the front were crammed with people. Very few pubs are doing it responsibly, they’re just tryna get as many in and make as much as they can while they can. I booked myself and a few friends on to the boat restaurant thing on the canal and it was mayhem. Lots of boozed up youngsters running around. Big queue for the tiny toilet in the packed downstairs. 4 drunk blazered rugby lads were across from us, completely mangled and had two dinners to stay longer. One of em even puked on the path outside and got back on. Ya have to rule by the worst example. So if a number of places are doing that, ya have to close em all. Don’t blame NPHET when people are doin this kinda crep when they are open. Having said that, id do different rules by different cities, towns rural areas etc. It’s plain lazy that they don’t.

    WHO now admits that the PCR test produces a potential mountain of false positives. So our core data, the core figures for infection rates is compromised. There is no debate anymore. Now watch the figures drop due to the new PCR testing guidelines….and watch the media spin this as a vaccination program success. In other words, watch the media and the government IGNORE the science….again.
