Last week: Swab And Go

This morning.

The first swab at a drive-thru rona test centre opened earlier at Dubln Airport and operated by private healthcare company Rocdoc, which offers the service to people who have not been referred by a GP.

A walk-in test centre will open next week, and they will allow Dublin Airport to process up to 12,000 tests per day in the run up to Christmas.

You give them money.

They stick a thing up your nose.

Win/win.

Like many others, who were probably also supposed to be working, I followed the final flights of the last two British Airways Boeing 747s – G-CIVB and G-CIVY on Flightrader24 (pics 2 and 3) this morning….While I was on there I noticed a distinct lack of activity in Dublin airport (pic 1)…

…as well as some RAF shenanigans just off Anglesey ( above). I thought it might be of interest to your readers….

Earlier: Checking In

This afternoon.

Did the state act unlawfully when departing passengers at Dublin Airport were approached and questioned by social welfare inspectors and gardai…

Via The Irish Times:

Under 2012 legislation, Social Welfare inspectors can question people at ports and airports, but only when they have “reasonable grounds” to believe there is a contravention of the Act.

However, according to multiple reports on social media and elsewhere this week, checking and questioning of people at airports has been widespread.

The Data Protection Commission (DPC) wrote to the Department of Social Protection in recent days asking it on what basis their inspectors had stopped and questioned people at airports, including asking them for personal information and personal public service numbers (PPSNs).

Meanwhile…

….The watchdog also said it is following up on queries made by individuals about whether the DEASP sourced information from passengers from other sources that allowed targeting of individuals for payment cancellation without any interaction with an inspector at a port or airport.

This afternoon.

Dublin Airport.

Swarm of sun-seeking, beer-swilling pandemic payment dolehead ingrates (out of picture).

Meanwhile…

The Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection has said people who are in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment should be actively seeking work if their job has been lost permanently.

Heather Humphreys told RTÉ’s News at One in the case of some sectors, like in hospitality, where a person’s job is temporarily paused due to Covid-19 restrictions, the Government is not expecting such people to be looking for another job.

She was speaking after the Department of Social Protection confirmed that 104 people have had their Pandemic Unemployment Payment stopped as a result of checks carried out at airports.

Those in receipt of PUP should actively seek work if their job has been lost permanently – Humphreys (RTÉ)
