Can’t We Just Sit Down And Talk It Over?



It’s just the legalising discrimination bit we’re a little worried about.

Did you not hear me?

I did, but shouldn’t we chat first?


Fair enough. No need to shout.

      Ah ratlicker conspiraloons never fail to make me laugh at them with their ridiculous notions.

        Interesting that you use the term “conspiraloons” to blindly dismiss legitimate concerns that people have on this matter.
        The lack of drawnout public general Dail debate will limit public discussion and awareness on the matter.
        The manner in which this legislation was rushed through should concern everyone.

    Imagine if 18 months ago someone had suggested the Dail would be passing bills that demanded vaccination passports to enter private businesses property without pre legislative scrutiny. With potential jail terms as punishment. They’d have been written off as a complete tinfoil hat loon…

    Surely anyone, regardless of how they feel about vaccinations, can see this is hugely troubling from a democratic society standards and norms point of view.

      Please address all departmental tinfoil related questions to the resident uncivil servant (above) for all clarifications… Thank you!

      The European Commission launched the COVID Certificate to enable those vaccinated to travel restriction-free throughout Europe. There is nothing in their detailed advice to say it should be used as a permit for accessing services, public amenities, refreshments and products. The EU always protects freedoms. Why is the Irish Government so obsessed with restricting them?

    Discrimination is legal unless it is based on one of the criteria set out in the Equality Act. Choosing to not get vaccinated is not one of those criteria.
