“Labour has to consider what the lockdowns are doing to people’s minds and to people’s heads….you don’t realise that because you are far removed from what is going on in rural Ireland….do you want to keep them in the wilderness, is that what this is all about?”
The Dáil at the Convention Centre, Dublin.
Independent Kerry TD Danny Healy Rae rails against the Labour Party’s National Aggressive Suppression Strategy Bill.
Calling it “Zero Covid by another name”, Labour leader Alan Kelly had earlier told deputies:
“We want to suppress and destroy the virus and basically ensure that we get it down so low to double digits that we can give Ireland the chance that 2021 will be different from 2020, because the people are at the end of their tether, and they need it.”
"I don't have to put on a political costume and a caricature to pretend I'm working class like some"
