    If the usual bunch of lunatics, maniacs, swivel eyed loons turn up will we have to change the name of Grafton Street to Psycho Path?

    1. Cui Bono?

      Have you even gone to one the protests?

      They’re not “lunatics” or “maniacs”. Just concerned citizens who have analysed the data and are aware of the lies and propaganda coming from the media and government.

        “Have you even gone to one the protests?”

        Yes, lots of lunatics talking through megaphones about satan and mask wearing… among other things…

        I’m sure there are less mad folks there, but lot’s of lunatics in charge…

        1. Cui Bono?

          So does 1% lunatics negate the 99% normal rational people?

          The data tells the truth. Who cares if there’s a few lunatics.

          1. ce

            It was more 75% lunatic and 25% potentially normal

            And all of the speakers were utterly mad and the local NP were there in ‘force’

          2. John

            You should care unless you are happy to associate with low lifes like the NP and their ilk, coupled with the frothing at the mouth clearly mentally unwell religious maniacs.

            Opposing collective government public health measures is now part of current right wing ideology because, I don’t know, culture war or a general rejection of society as a cohesive whole – many theses will be written on this. You may not see yourself as right wing, but that is one right-wing tenet you have wholeheartedly embrace. You’re actually quite reactionary.

            “These protests and rallies are happening all over the world. Are they all far right types?”

            No, plenty of other flavours of nuts are also available…. with the odd sane person looking uncomfortable as they listen to the nonsense spouted by most of the speakers…

            So anyone who objects to mandated vaccines or passports is a nut now is it?

            History will be the judge of who is the real nut cases.

          6. Nigel

            I dont think they’re nuts, I think they’re wrong, and varying degrees of wrong, depending. People who think Satan’s behind it all are wrong, people who think it’s discrimination are wrong, people who are concerned about increasing high-tech surveillance, the monetisation of personal data and the economic power of large corporations, including Big Pharma, are right, but those were the trends and facts about our societies when we went into the pandemic and instead of fousing on those issues, dissenters decided to go with the idea that the pandemic was fake, which was a fantastic way for poisoning the well against any widespread movement for change.

        2. Cui Bono?

          I dislike the NP. They are just one group there trying to get more votes but they won’t get many.

          I only care about the truth and hope the ignorant masses wake up from their trance and realise they’ve been lied to.

    …when the history of the current pandemic is told, honorable mention will surely be due to the tiny collection of ratlickers and general loonies for reinforcing the solidarity of the vast majority of people whose selfless actions have helped defeat this terrible plague…

      1. bisted

        …back when I saw those trucks carrying dead people in Italy in March 2020 is when I realised this was a plague…the data shows it has killed millions worldwide…and yes, the people who tried to lie to me at the beginning are still trying to lie to me…I’ve asked many times what motivates them but never had an answer…

        1. Cui Bono?

          The trucks you saw were trucks on TV. That’s not a plague. That’s propaganda used to frighten you into accepting lockdowns and ultimately Digital Ids via vaccine passports.

          The deaths figures are far lower than reported because many died of their comorbidities, not covid. Average age is 83 with 2.6 comorbidities. Also, many were not even tested for covid, simply assumed they had it. And that’s over 2 full seasons.

          1. SOQ

            Governments already done that in the nursing homes by throwing in infected people and then euthanasia by jabs?

          1. Micko

            Why would you want to burn capitalism down?

            It literally built the house / office / car you’re in.

            We can modify without destroying.

            Don’t think making money is bad.

            It’s the distribution of money that’s the issue.

            Personally, I have a great gratitude and dislike for aspects of capitalism.

            I’m very grateful for the home I live in, the business I’ve been able build and the society we get to participate in.

            But I also see the terrible side to it. It’s far from a perfect system, but it’s the system that has produced everything we have in the west.

            I don’t know if there’s a solution at all tbh.

    have the day off so will be there! I must say, Van Morrison, Clapton, Ian Brown and Noel Gallagher have all stood out as the voices of reason and sanity during this period of media induced mass hysteria when most musicians and artists have been slow witted mindless cucks to power.

    1. Micko

      Strikes me as interesting that all four of those musicians have all had a history of saying what they wanted and not being particularly well liked for it.

      Not perfect individuals by any means but they must have grown tough over the years.

      There’s a power in being ok with being hated.

      1. Slave to the Rhythm

        Clapton and Morrison have courted and dare I say it, achieved negative publicity alright in the past, but I wouldn’t think Gallagher and Brown are in the same category?

        1. Micko

          The Gallagher’s have always been unpopular with some. (dare I mention Blur) and have always had that marvellous talent of not caring what people think of them.

          Brown is similar and I think he might have even been in jail once or twice? Could be remembering wrong.

          1. Slave to the Rhythm

            Yea maybe Micko, while they are famous mostly these days for being boorish attention-seeking loudmouths, what I don’t understand is why anyone would listen to what Noel or Liam have to say about COVID or any other serious topics. Even on the subject of music, they are like a broken record…repeating the same old guff now over and again.. but unpopular – I don’t think anyone takes them seriously enough for them to be unpopular…it would be more a case of they are jumping on the latest bandwagon to get some fellas like you and me talking about them Micko…

            Brown on the other hand has always had a non-conformist streak and has frequently carried that through his solo work……I’d have a bit more respect for him now… Van Morrison is just a cranky old weirdo.. sorry… I love the man but he’s stone mad… Clapton?…. don’t even go there..

          2. Micko

            You may be right. They may just be jumping on a bandwagon, but I’ve worked in the music biz for a good few years now and it’s changed even in the last decade.

            It’s all controlled by the big three labels and if anyone steps out of line – they are screwed.

            I’ve seen journalists punished for writing one unfavourable articles about one artist, which means they don’t get access to another artist.

            One wrong article can effectively finish you. So I can understand why modern artists and journos wouldn’t step out of line.

            Every decision that is made now has to go through so many layers and people before something is signed off.

            So when I hear of musicians who have made their money and are established saying something that is against the status quo, my ears prick up. It may be bandwagon jumping as you say, but it might not be.

            It’s why I’ve always liked comedians and their truth they have to tell us – right or wrong. One man’s opinion, one man on the road with no support, just him and what he has to say to that audience on that night in question.

            There something magic in that.

            Also Noel’s High Flying Birds stuff is quite good. Give it a listen if you haven’t. ;)

          3. Slave to the Rhythm

            oh yea, I have nothing against Noel’s music, or even Liam’s solo stuff either… it’s just most of the stuff he comes out with, like a poor man’s Roy Keane… anyway

            Thanks for your comments there, I guess in the mainstream music business, it is indeed as you say, as boring as bedamned, that’s been my impression too now for a good lock of years… But you know Clapton or Van – I am guessing really don’t need the money, they shouldn’t give a fupp in any case….I liked what Van did and said on this issue, because he’s clearly not doing it for money or publicity (even though he got a fair bit of the latter, more so than for any of his recent records, I dare say)…Van was coming from a place of concern for fellow working musicians… fair play for him for doing that.. probably the only prominent media celebrity type person I heard doing that along with I suppose, Mary Coughlan..

      2. Oro

        Don’t forget the commonality that three of them share regarding a history of violence, of which two of them victimized their spouses in that regard.

        ‘Not perfect’ seems a bit of a cop out to me but I suppose it depends on how seriously one considers rape.

  4. Nigel

    The government is just dying to open up. They would never have held out this long if they didnt have major public support across the political spectrum, beneath all the sharp and deserved criticism and complaints about how they’ve handled many aspects of the pandemic response. So while I hope people in the arts get support, funding and lots of paying gigs, this is populist pushing against an open door. This is Bodger casually dropping ‘crime against humanity’ to justify poorly researched posts that rely on speculation and implied rather than actual connections between people, events, statistics and trends. This is, dare I say it, virtue signalling.

  5. Daisy Chainsaw

    When you have to tell people it’s a “peaceful” assembly then you’ve got serious PR issues.

    The usual racists and conspiraloons rebranding in the hope of attracting more than the Nazional Party and Deeeeeee Wall.
