        Daisy – you mean the Oxford vaccine that’s continuing to be used in more than 100 countries and territories around the world and is by far the most popular Covid jab because if its ease of storage and price ?

            7 deaths out of 18 million vaccines in the UK and it’s not even known if they’re attributable to the vaccine ?
            There’s only one clot here pal and it’s a right Charlie.

            Yea, it was probably in the tea. And let’s not forget the other 149,168 souls that are surplus to requirements. Euro champs at last…eh birdbrain?

            Guess what ?
            People die in a pandemic.
            Vaccines prevent deaths but in your case they can’t improve Dumb and Dumber levels of bovine stupidity.
            When you eventually get one of course – schoolchildren will be the last cohort so it may be 2022.
            Unless Ireland creates a vaccine.
            Oh wait … you’re reliant on others as usual.

            “People die in a pandemic”. Indeed they do…but more die when in the hands of a British government. You’ve a very short memory Tommy. Such appalling initial action, such utter ignorance, such utter birdbrains, such an utter disgrace.

      How are we supposed to cope with all your English immigrants coming over here taking our jabs and accessing our social services? 400,000+ applied for passports according to CSO figures. We can’t afford all these immigrants and need to put them in cages.

        400k? Is that all? Surely it’s 40m? :-). Perhaps they’ve heard the IMF predictions that the U.K. economy will be one of the final ones to recover to its pre Covid levels. Late 2022 or early 2023 at best they say. Largely due to falling trade with the EU.
        Don’t be coming here with your misery faces on and your paws out. The Republic says “No”. :-)

          Would this be the same IMF which this morning said Britain will clock up faster economic growth than the US and Europe next year as the recovery is turbocharged by the country’s world-leading vaccination scheme and a Treasury spending spree.
          The level of stupidity on here is sky-high today.

            Don’t go booking that holiday to Blackpool quite yet. The IMF also stated yesterday “British economy is still predicted to return to its pre-pandemic level of activity only in late 2022 or early 2023”. Remove those propaganda tinted glasses Tommy. You dug your own grave. Your mates and rellies will be on their knees begging for Irish passports and modest accommodation in remote Ireland by the end of next year. Fáilte!

            Just think of all those new footy supporters getting behind Ireland when they qualify for a world cup or European championship.
            Oh wait…
            Come on you 33rd Team.

            Forget that footy craic. Imagine all those Tommies attending GAA matches in the back of beyond dressed as women and lonely for pork pie.

          4. Charger Salmons

            Doubt they’ll be fans of Quidditch.
            Much less so the GAA child-bothering version.
            Imagine being world champions of a sport no other country on earth gives a toss about.
            So unimportant it doesn’t even register on my Flashscore app and that even features a sport called Kabaddi.

          There’s nothing the Brits like more than being ravished while crawling on their knees – but shure look it the brothels won’t staff themselves

    From being given orders to behave, to being told that our [autonomous] freedoms and civilian rights will be taken from us if we remain un-vaccinated (by choice or otherwise), to having said rights compromised and discussed in a war room scenario by unelected civil servants aka the tail that wags the government dog; a pattern has been allowed to develop unquestioned and unchallenged within the body politic, the difference is that many people living in Ireland are so inured they’ve become complicit – and I’m not just referring to the lack of thinking or imagination.

      There is a pandemic – you have the freedom to catch and/or spread the virus if the alternatives don’t suit you.

      Sad but true Steph.
      Ireland has become a country that always does as it’s told.
      The rot started on Oct 2nd 2009.

      It’s the new normal in our old two tier society…

      Munchausen by proxy at the top,
      Stockholm syndrome at the bottom.
      With the rest of us stuck in the middle.

      Bitter stalker who imagined a meaningful relationship with famous woman out of a response to a couple of tweets. They had one alleged meeting and she wanted nothing to do with him after it. Piers Moron is a bitter stan with a bruised ego.

    I love that the cheerleaders for the vaccines are now aligned with Johnson – this really convinces me it’s all safe

        Why? A retrial means the original verdict was wrong which would likely influence the jury to acquit. A plea bargain confirms guilt.

          Hint-if the NHS is now playing with the third rail,any chance of a quote on this?

          They American citizens,he wasn’t,I’m amazed two white Americans spent a day in jail,for killing a non national,but it’s North Carolina,can’t have women killing drunk,abusive men,there’d be none left.

          ‘The Council of Europe is to reopen its review into the 1989 murder of the Belfast solicitor Patrick Finucane, an attack found to have involved British state collusion.

          Finucane, who represented a number of high-profile republicans, was shot dead in front of his family by loyalist gunmen in one of the most notorious killings of the Troubles in Northern Ireland.‘

          Biden admin care a lot,a lot about this.

          @Daisy – The original verdict has already been overturned. The plea bargain offered is for manslaughter, not murder.

    I see Biden is doubling down on Trumps tax initiative for US companies operating outside the US.
    Biden good, Trump Bad? (Only worth a square inch in one of the papers above)

    How’s the situation at the Mexican border? Are there many kids separated from their parents and living in mass cages still?

    Dubai Two are being treated ‘worse than animals’, according to the mother – what, by staying in a nice hotel? I presume they were doing something similar in Dubai.

        “The women left the hotel this morning for a period of time and were seen entering a nearby vehicle.

        However, it is understood they returned to the hotel of their own accord following an “interaction” with officers”

        Hmmmm. Perhaps that is why.

        They got as far as Loughrea, Co Galway, before cops intercepted. Not bad going. Bet the return trip to the Crown Plaza wasn’t much fun.

    RTE just loves paying out large sums of (our) money in defamation settlements. It looks like SF members receive large amounts due to RTE’s (and Joe Duffy) rush to carry out the bidding of FFG.
    Maybe RTE should change it’s status to ‘Charity’
