Just For One Day


This afternoon.

Inexplicably jab-happy RISE TD Paul Murphy heralds the launch of the Independent Scientific Advocacy Group’s ‘We Can be Zero’ campaign appealing for a Zero Covid strategy (including even more restricted lockdowns) for the island of Ireland.

Not all zeros wear capes.



Pillow-lipped progressive boffin and former Broadsheet columnist Julien Mercille suggests a veritable rainbow of dystopian ‘internal zones’.

Why can’t we pick our own colours?

    people can have different views on the appropriate COVID19 strategy etc, but everyone must surely be outraged by the revelation that the long held FFG policy of downgrading and degrading of our public health system continued throughout 2020 – despite knowing that a train wreck was coming down the line

    all the talk and promises from FFG – lies and bluster

      Due to weak oppostion, BB. It’s no coincidence that the two main parties – who have, for the past one hundred years, given this country’s electorate a formidable opposition – have joined forces to snuff out the SF threat and the country is left with professional windbags like P. Murphy and Boyd-Barrett who are black plastic bags blowing in a roadside ditch in comparison.

    You know the old one about asking for directions and the fella says “I wouldn’t start from here if I was you”. Thats it with zero covid in Ireland. We could have tried it in March 2020 but that ship has long since sailed!

      I keep using the last outbreak of Foot and Mouth as a reference
      They didn’t flinch or hesitate

      Same for the contaminated Pork products that time as well

      Yet when twas put into a different Government Depts hands we have this mess that 1000s and 1000s will never recover from

      Yeah well they probably scoffed at St. Patrick when he decided to push for a zero snake strategy back in the day. But through the sheer power of his will – and maybe a little help from our Lord – we’ve been living happily as a snake-free island ever since

    Zero covid would probably also involve Paul Murphy not regularly cheer-leading for large public protests just because he thinks it worthy.

        He got very lucky with the timing of the screenshot there
        In fairness

        Some of the lads look like they’ve been forced to clock into mandatory in-house health & safety training video

    Paul Murphy is a professional faeces stirrer.
    I’m not surprised given his far left political persuasion that he is calling for greater restrictions on civil liberties.
    Without doubt the current government are a mess, they suffer from cronyism, incompetence and outright corruption on the biblical scale. But the alternatives would be far far worse.
    Sinn Fein’s policies are lacking, particularly the economic ones. But any government they would form would have to be propped up by Paul Murphy and his comrades. You can be sure that their demands for support will be as bat faeces crazy as this discussion was.

      ‘Without doubt the current government are a mess, they suffer from cronyism, incompetence and outright corruption on the biblical scale. But the alternatives would be far far worse’

      how much worse? would they arm the unemployed, or hang the rich, or nationalise everything including your cat?

        A huge increase in capital flight as multinationals leave the country as higher corporation taxes and anti-competitive laws are passed. This will add to levels of unemployment.
        Wealth taxes would be an imposed which would result in even more capital flight and a sharp reduction in people’s disposable income.

          I think you’re giving Paul Murphy far too much clout

          He might be used to back up any future SF led Governement
          But he won’t be any big swinging mickie
          He’ll be allowed to keep on with the shouting and protesting and the like
          He’ll get some crumbs for his support base
          like more SNAs, Carers Allowances, Medical Cards etc

          but having an input into Tax legislation
          not a chance
