    Charger’s Fax Fact™ #61 ( Super Sunday Edition

    A stunning new set of vaccination figures from the UK with more than one million people being jabbed in just two days taking the overall total of people receiving a first vaccination to 14,556,827 or 22% of the entire population. 534,869 of these have also received a second vaccination.
    All other metrics including infections, hospitalisations and fatalities are down by around a quarter on the week.

    Ireland added an extra 8397 to its overall total of 256,681.

    Meanwhile, behind the scenes the UK government is working on an online version of an immunity passport to allow the tourist industry to take off again this summer. Fancy Greece this summer ? You won’t have lost your marbles if you do …
    Wahaay !

      Good evening Kate, I know it’s not important to you but after today’s figures, there’s almost 117,000 deaths from the virus in the UK. The UK death rate is over twice that here.
      You were bleating on earlier about some poll showing the Tories ahead of Labour. It’s funny how you haven’t written about his approval ratings in a while. I wonder why. Would it ever be that he is -16% in the latest ones old boy?
      Marvelous.

      V – unless there’s something new to say why would you make a 40-year-old story front page news ?
      Besides, as I was reminded by Bodger this week, the actual date of the anniversary is today.
      Perhaps Monday’s papers will have something from the commemorations which will give them a hook to feature precisely what you’re asking for.

      No embarrassing the party while Fianna Fail holds the keys to the Taoiseach’s office. As secure as a chain on a fire escape.

    Not in the papers but in day 2 of ac75 / Prada cup saw Italy stretch lead over UK to 4:0.
    Race 3 ( first one today) is the one to watch. First proper match race so far.

    Good to see a majority of players and officials not taking the knee before the rugger games this weekend.
    It comes as Priti Patel , the Hindu UK Home Secretary , also confirmed she wouldn’t be doing the knee while attacking the political violence of BLM.
    As I’ve mentioned before that picture of Sir Kneel-a-lot will come back to bite him on the backside at the next election.
    Thankfully this ludicrous virtue signalling has nearly run its course.

      How is the cricket going today Kate? You were very keen to tell us about the last match between India and England.

        By jove those racist old dinosaurs in the Irish team not taking the knee either along with the French team and all the officials.
        Of course rugby always attracted the more intelligent player and supporter.
        It’s only the lumpen soccer players who feel the need to copy this outdated American woke-fest.

          If they were kneeling for the Queen you’d be calling for anyone who didn’t kneel to be hung from gibbets in the public square.

        2. Joe F

          And what about the cricket old boy? You’re very quiet on that today and yesterday. India giving England quite the hammering I see. Funny, you were all talk last week, when England won.
          Marvelous.

    …a inept,inexperienced minister and a jackbooted thug who rose to the top in a now discredited,disbanded paramilitary force.

    In the midst of a pandemic _ this is what the ruc are doing ?

    ‘However, despite this potential amendment, the spokesperson confirmed that on Thursday, February 4, Gardaí carried out a search of a premises near Irishtown in Kilkenny.

    “A number of items were seized by Gardaí. These items will now undergo analysis,” the spokesperson confirmed.

    According to Mr O’Brien, Gardai and detectives seized oils, butter, teas and other edible products he sells.

    “Every single product line you see on our website but the dog oil,” Mr O’Brien stated.

    Mr O’Brien says Gardai informed him that they would return to seize more product and close the store.”

    …what a waste of time,energy and resources.

      “Since the late 1990s, the U.S. Congress has been consistent and clear in support of a full,
      independent and public judicial inquiry into the murder of Patrick Finucane. U.S. legislation urging
      your government to recognize the overwhelming public interest in a “true”, independent, judicial
      inquiry has been enacted and/or passed the House of Representatives on four separate occasions.”

          OK Admiral Nelson, whatever you say old boy. Scumbag. That’s a word I would use about you, after your disgusting joke about the 39 Vietnamese.

    England all out for 134 in 1st innings old sport. India just the 249 runs ahead then with 9 wickets still in hand. Just thought I’d tell you in case you weren’t following it.
    Marvelous.

    I see the New Zealand government has just ordered a country-wide snap lockdown after only a few new cases were detected there. One new case triggered a lockdown in most of Australia a couple of weeks ago and yet another lockdown was imposed in the state of Victoria a couple of days ago. And all this is during the summer season. Seems to me that the two countries are looking increasingly like ‘cautionary tales’ for having taken the control-freak, elimination approach to the virus.

    Perhaps what’s going on is that those governments are attempting to manufacture consent for the blockchain digital ‘health passports’ in coordination with all the other countries as part of this ‘Great Reset’ They began with an extreme totalitarian-like approach and it’s set to continue until the objective is achieved. “Dear citizens, only the vaccines and digital health passports can break the never ending cycle of snap lockdowns!”
