    I’d imagine the majority of public sector and salaried management really can’t see an end to the pandemic at least until the end of Emily In Paris season 4 with the proviso they go back to a 3 day week in order to complete viewing of Ozark

      i work from home and the office is based in the city centre. one of my team has to get a load of stuff prepared for managers in the morning by 9am. she lives in kildare. it makes a lot more sense have her start at 8 from home than have her travel in at 6am just to do the same thing in an office. not to mention the drudge of the commute home.
      for most office staff, being present in the office is simply unnecessary.

        I think blended working is the way to go.

        In for a few days and working at home for a few days.

        Video calls are no substitute for face to face communication imo

          Micko: I’ve been trying to teach animals how to foal/calve/lamb through Skype but for some reason it just ain’t happenin’!

          Sometimes face-to-face is necessary?

          P.S. Or end-to-end… you get my gist…

    More waffle-like rubbish from Varadkar. Photo shoot material only.

    Dr. Harold News has a good question regarding the Criminal Investigation into Varadkar.

        No I don’t thank you. Unlike yourself who is in the high 40s at this stage. Toddle along lad.

    this is so dumb. all its done is removed the right to ask for people working somewhere for under 6 months, which wasn’t the case before, and its giving bosses a handy 13 reasons to reject. I think hes painting this bill to look like its for employees but its really for bosses to force people into work.

      Force you into going somewhere you have signed a contract stating you will be?
      The absolute cheek of the barstewards.

    Quite the achievement to both float the idea and torpedo it all at the same time, almost as if he’s talking out both sides of his gob.

    when it comes to the ordinary citizen it’s always pointless crap with FG

    lol, they don’t even try

    as regards Dr Harold’s chitter comment there, I’d have more gone with:
    “If a worker leaked a confidential document and was being investigated by the Guards for same, could they still be somehow handed the top job in the land, y’know the one that put’s him over the Guards? Asking for a friend.”

      hahahahaha, however, I doubt Varadkar has many friends – egoistical narcisstic sociopathic parasites tend not to.

      I remember thinking when Leo became taoiseach that with a gay taoiseach we’d finally have a dapper, well dressed representative on the global stage – no more Bertie and his mortifying canary yellow suits. Hasn’t worked out quite like that…
