    The good news is that Irish anti-vaxxers cretins won’t be able to travel abroad. So we’ll not be embarrassed abroad by the homeopathy/ anti-science/ acupuncturist/ Joe Rogan worshipping freaks.

            or she thinks I’m the acupuncture lady from the telly, I’m not, her name was Karen for a start and she was very spiritual, my name’s Janet and I have no spirituality.

        I suspect she lives alone there, Gavin, by choice of course. Everyone else probably chose to live elsewhere, anywhere elsewhere, their loss. Sara probably got quaxxed, quaxxed & quaxxed again & will get quaxxed again & again, too, even though viruses would probably avoid her like the plague, due to her insightful intellect & delightful personality. She enhances the reputation of small-minded quaxx fascists with every utterance, don’t you think?
        No, me neither.

      Ha, I’ve been on four foreign holidays (2 each year) since this nonsense kicked off. I have already made plans for this summer. Many of the countries heavily reliant on tourism have left openings for us like negative PCRs, which I used last summer. Was grand. Anywhere you’d be wouldn’t really be considered a holiday anyway but you enjoy yourself with that ticking biological time bomb you’ve got inside you

      1. Sara

        Oh look, it’s the man who won’t go on BS TV because he’s got a ‘professional’ reputation to keep up. You give chickens a bad name.

        The Spanish government site had a drop-down menu to input your “Test Result”, it has one option, “Negative”.

        1. Steph Pinker

          … I wouldn’t worry about that, it’s the same in Cork – without the nice weather or obligatory/ mandatory non compulsory test results.

          … as long as you sign in…

    …see…that’s what happens when you educate prods…they don’t be long taking over their professions and start trying to influence policy…folk off Sam!

      1. bisted

        …sorry J…I was trying to paraphrase Kate Hoey…but yes, I do hate prods…all flavours of christian but catholics in particular…always had a soft spot for Quakers…

        1. Janet, dreams of all the cake

          I think you’ll find it’s the Church of England/ Ireland that maintains the paper wall with catholicism :)

      1. bisted

        …no doubt Giggser, you can supply many links to show how much I despise people who define themselves by religion…as they say in Dublin…I’m a good atheist, thank god…

      2. GiggidyGoo

        But you haven’t told us why you hate protestants. Why to you hate protestants Bisted? Plenty of popcorn left.

        I don’t have any links, but this one is worth keeping, don’t you think?

        1. Janet, dreams of all the cake

          ah now giggs he hates Catholics more so it’s grand…. ducks and goes out for run ! ;)

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Ah yeah, but i’m not gone on religion.
            I don’t hate people because of their religion though.
            That’d make the dating scene defunct.

            But I’m interested why Bisted would have a blanket hatred to Protestants, Catholics etc.

            He does have a soft spot for Quakers. Maybe it’s because he gets his oats there?

          2. bisted

            …without wishing to get into another semantic sword fence with you Giggser…you always win…I do confess to having a bit of a crush on two Quaker sisters…

          3. GiggidyGoo

            Nope Bisted. You come on here every so often, out of the blue, with an uncalled for questioning of me and my decisions. I’ve given you the answer.
            Now it’s your turn. Don’t run away now pet. Answer up.
            Why do you hate protestants? You know I’ll keep asking don’t you?

        2. bisted

          …what part of despise don’t you understand Giggser…synonyms include hate, loathe, detest, abhor, execrate, et al…you really seem to have a problem with language…choke yourself…

        3. GiggidyGoo

          The question is – why?
          And you can’t answer it.

          Why do you hate, loath, despise etc. protestants?. Still plenty of popcorn.

          1. K.Cavan

            Well, Giddy, he’s an Atheist who defines people by their religious views & hates people who define themselves by their religious views, probably hates bigots, biscuits & logic, too, I reckon. Lived next door to logic but hated it do much he petrol-bombed his own house, in an attempt to drive it out.
            After that, he took to posting his interesting bigotry, in online forums. The rest is geography.

  3. GiggidyGoo

    Sam is getting more irrelevant by the hour, hence his many attempts to gain recognition over the past couple of (days).

      1. GiggidyGoo

        Have to make an apology to Oro. My post which you replied to was available to be edited after you replied, so there are glitches in the system alright.

        1. Oro

          Yes it is as I said it was. Appreciate your saying it out loud. It wouldn’t have to have been this complicated if SOQ had just done the easy thing and acknowledged it in the first place, but we all know how that story goes.

          1. GiggidyGoo

            Don’t know though Oro if what you say happened, did. Just that there are glitches and happy to confirm that they do exist.

    1. Ah sure jaysus you know yourself

      You beat me to it. There’ll be more than him trying to retain their Virgin Media or News (hahahahahaha) talk slot after this is all over. Celebrity chef etc beckons

      1. K.Cavan

        Virgin Meeja are working on it already, I’m A Jungle Celebrity Covid Spoofer. They parachute them into thick jungle, then fly home.

        1. Mad

          Aren’t they already in a sort of wildebeest- friendly habitat? I’d say the twist is they have to come back down to Earth

    We should aim for COVID Zero
    — Sam McConkey (@SamuelMcConkey1) July 19, 2020

    Back in July 2020 that was still a reasonable target.

    On our current trajectory we are heading for 5000 cases each day in Dublin by end of October. Sadly, 0.5 to 1% of those may die of it: 25 to 50 people daily, based on our past experiences, and many others will get sick. So change is needed again in my view.
    — Sam McConkey (@SamuelMcConkey1) September 14, 2020

    He was wrong about October (perhaps the lockdowns worked?). But three months later (after lockdowns were relaxed, and then reinstated) he was correct. A big spike of 5000+ cases and 25+ deaths each day from mid Jan to mid Feb

    Great news, the vaccines work. See how very very few of over 65year in Ireland got SARS CoV2 in last 2 weeks.
    — Sam McConkey (@SamuelMcConkey1) June 13, 2021

    He was correct, there were very few over 65year in Ireland got SARS CoV2 in previous 2 weeks (this was pre-Omicron)

    Was he correct (based on information available at the time)? Looks like a yes.
    Was he correct (based on what we know now). No, probably not.

    1. GiggidyGoo

      In other words, he wasn’t correct, he didn’t know, he made it up as he went along. Same as Like O’Neill but with a little less vigour.
      These guys are, erm, Professors, by all accounts. To my mind they are attention seekers who feed on a notion of fame.

      1. Steph Pinker

        Any gobshite can be professor; all it means is that one is specific in a given study of gobshitery which no one else has pursued before – and gets paid for it – or gives a toss.

    2. SOQ

      ‘Looks like a yes’. ‘probably not’. Factchecker answers if there ever was. Up there with ‘mainly false’.

  5. Doxxy Chainsaw

    It’s all the vaccinated running around spiking the Unvaxxed bringing down the numbers. TRUFAX. JFK Jr told me.

  6. LeopoldGLoom

    I’ve mostly ignored broadsheet over the last 2 years just because I’ve been busy. Has it become a haven for anti vaccination bolloxolly and conspiracy theories, all while still offering that FF advisor a panel for spouting poo? OR have I missed something entirely

    1. bisted

      …nope…sorry to say you haven’t missed a thing…Bodger may have slipped further down the rabbit hole but still does great headlines…

      1. Cú Chulainn

        The headlines are super brilliant.. and, we’ll always have Gee Bag.. but, yes, a fair whack of nutjobbery abounds these days..

  7. K.Cavan

    We need to strive for Zero Conkey.
    Masks, lockdowns, socialist distancing, injecting engine oil into babies, throwing politicians off bridges, watching the Six One News, whatever it takes.

    1. Doxxy Chainsaw

      It’s a real pity the livestream from last week was removed from YT. Then people could see that you’re not being sarcastic with comments like that, you’re deadly serious!

      Tell us again about being spiked with the vaccine!!

  8. SailorGerry

    I do try not to hate anybody that that has not done me direct harm, or threatened me or my loved ones in some way way shape or form, in my life time; this for me is rational.

    However even though the Irish history books have been rather white washed to try to absolve the sins, of the mostly protestant colonizers, Scottish predominately in the North, gentry, in the South, that ethnically cleansed a space for them selves under Cromwell and onwards

    And later as the blight caused Irish people to starve as masses of Irish grown food was exported at gun point across the country.

    Given that the UK has never apologised for its genocide of the mostly Catholic peace loving people of that time, I might understand a transferred hatred towards a despicable government, then transferring that vitriol to a person that has done us harm, based on a historic bias.

    If God is willing, peacefully, we see a united Eire in my life time, I am optimistic.

    Caveat being that it is not under a yoke of EU, WEF / BIS / UN / ECB control, otherwise it is counter productive.

    2 cents, nothing more.

  9. Steph Pinker

    hahahaha BS this is one of the funniest and most bizarre threads I’ve read in ages; I’m on-call so I’ll check in later to enjoy any more full moon HOWWWLLLSSSS ARF, ARF! :P
