Covid Crash
« on: November 17, 2021, 12:36:27 am »
Family member close to the Green Party says some Green TDs are fucking fed up of Mick From Cork they think he is useless unable to lead .They think he gave in to the Sport and Porter Lobby .One or two of them are thinking of jumping ship especially with the CEPA vote due .A few are not happy with Eamo the bikes performance in Scotland .They say Irish Greens were one of the few Green Partys actually in Government in the World  and didnt raise their voice loud enough .Could the whole lot come crashing down before Christmas FF/FG/Greens have no chance of being re elected so throw the whole Steaming Pile of Shite over to Mary Lou and Friends to sort out .Let them fix the housing crises ,overcrowded hospitals and no PUP .

Jack Lynches Ghost looked lost this evening telling us all that the party was over again .He didnt even have somebody with him to do the sign language .Dodger Donnolly or Dr Leo or the Early School Leaver from Bray were no where to be seen .Last weeks Soccer crowd and Rugby crowd havent qued up for their covid tests yet figure by Friday or Saturday could be 6000 .The whole thing is shambolic pressure from the Pubs and clubs plus another full house at Aviva on Saturday .Looks like government giving in to lobby groups has backfired badly .

I dont know Coola its every TD for themselves Greens will do well to hold 3 seats FF probably get less than 20 anybody abandoning ship might be allowed to say I was standing up for you .Paddy Power only going 9/2 a General election in 2021 it should be really about a 100/1 shot .Alan Kelly and Jack Lynches Ghost calling each other Lieing Cunts in the Dail today .Dodger Donnolly .Dr Leo is Great or the Early School leaver not even in the Dail to support their Taoiseach .Mary Lou shouting about PUP for all .If the government are clever they will organize a collapse Let Mary Lou and the Social democrats and the Lefties form a Government after the next election and let them deal with all the Bills and necessary tax increases and cuts .

The Greesn were in power with FF when they destroyed the country and yet here we are people voted for them again.

What did they do once in power? go against some of the principles

But as long as we have cycle lanes and pedestrianisation all is  well.

Hard to disagree with cycle lanes, I guess... particularly with the COVID '19 anall. Pedestrianisation has certainly proved beneficial to the taxi trade but maybe not so good for delivery men?

Its everyman for themselves .Even the Hippies in Dublin 8 are pissed off with bus and bike lanes Greens won most of their seats as a protest they wont hold them so some Green TD might go Extinction Rebellion and try win the radical youth vote but they will need to bring down the Government to have any creditability .Did anything ever happen to Danny Healy for opening his Porter Shop during Lockdown ?

RELAND’S HOPELESS, CLUELESS, DEFEATED TAOISEACH.
At the time of writing – 2pm on Tuesday, news is trickling through that the nation’s great leader – No, not Tony Holohan, the other one – is planning yet another address to the nation to explain the latest full scale retreat in the war on Covid, which has been comprehensively lost for some time. An hour ago, word came through that the Government have decided that Ireland shall now enter a phase of “enhanced restrictions” – a phrase so skin-crawlingly manufactured that it could only really have been invented by one of the fifty or so ex journalists paid six figures a year to advise this Government.

Pubs and Nightclubs will close at 11.30pm. This is, in effect, a move to close nightclubs altogether, without wanting the bad public relations from announcing that nightclubs will close altogether. Families will have to isolate for five days if one person in the family or household tests positive.

Neither measure will, you can be assured, do anything to “stop the spread”. Nightclubs will be replaced by house parties, and other unregulated activities. Schools – which, everybody with a brain knows, are the main vectors of the current spread – will remain opened, as they should.

There is often a reluctance in the Irish media to identify the cause of the problem, and point a finger at him. This is because, for understandable and human reasons, people do not like being personal. Journalists have to look Micheál Martin in the face. It is harder to do that, after you have told the truth about him. But journalism is about being honest, too. Or it should be.

It especially should be so when we are talking about the man who is, effectively, the nation’s chief executive officer. Nobody is more powerful, in Ireland, than Micheál Martin. Nobody has more responsibility for the state of the nation, or the conduct of Government. The buck must stop somewhere, and Mr. Martin’s desk is that place. There is nobody above him, forcing his hand, or telling him what to do. He has wanted this job for his whole adult life. He has now had it for approaching 18 months. It is fair to judge him on his record. It is also important to say that judging him on his record does not mean that he is a bad person – by all accounts, Mr. Martin is a very nice man, and, in his personal life, a decent man.

But in terms of his professional performance, it should be, by now, abundantly clear that the country is presently led by the most vaccilating, ineffective, ill-equipped man ever to hold the office of Taoiseach.

It should also not be a surprise. In a political career spanning 34 years, Micheál Martin has one notable achievement – the smoking ban. He has been a career follower. Loyal to a fault first to Charlie Haughey, and then to Albert Reynolds, and then to Bertie Ahern, and then, until it looked as if his own seat might be in peril, to Brian Cowen. His leadership of Fianna Fáil has been an unmitigated, directionless disaster unparalleled in the history of that once-proud party. In over a decade at the helm, he has failed, even once, to have an idea of his own, or a policy that is distinctive. He has followed the herd at every turn, chasing votes and voters and popularilty and the latest trend in public opinion without any idea of what he wanted to do, once he took power.

His leadership of the country has been identical.

Ireland, under Micheál Martin, has definitively and absolutely lost the fight against Covid. In truth, the Taoiseach has never even tried to lead it. He got the job he spent his life wanting, and then promptly installed Tony Holohan as the shadow Taoiseach.

Over the last year and a bit, the country has been crying out for leadership. A sense that somebody – anybody – is at the reins and has a plan. The Government has comprehensively failed to provide that leadership. If you want an explanation for the bizarre cult of Tony Holohan, then there it is. For all his many flaws, Holohan is the only leader in power who makes any attempt to provide reassurance, or guidance. That so many still look to him is not testament to any great success on his part, but that he is about the only person in the Government with the ability to communicate a plan or give the impression that he has one, or that he can speak with confidence about where the country will be, in three months.

We have been reduced, under this Government, and this Taoiseach, to a cowering wreck of a nation. A country where a substantial portion of the population lives in fear of the daily number of covid cases, and hopes that somebody will come and save them. We are a country that, in the absence of any leadership, has turned on its own citizens, absurdly blaming 7% of the population who can not, or will not, take a vaccine for the fact that that same vaccine clearly is not working to eliminate transmission.

What the country needs is a leader who will tell it that the worst has passed, and normal life is perfectly safe. The United Kingdom, for all that it is led by a deeply flawed man, has such a leader, and life in that country is normal, without any restrictions. The virus is still there, in the background of public life. But it is not the all-consuming daily nightmare fuel that it is in Ireland, under Mr. Martin.

It starts, and ends, at the top.

Tony Holohan is running the country, on Covid, because Micheál Martin will not. He does not want to. He does not know how to. The strategy, from day one, has been to let NPHET handle it, and hope that Government will take the credit, and Holohan the blame.

The result, predictably enough, has been the opposite: Holohan gets the credit, and Government gets the blame. Because people, for all their flaws, instinctively recognise that the Government is a sideshow to NPHET, and not really running the country besides.

We are now going backwards. Back to restrictions. And fear. And a winter of discontent, and businesses suffering losses, and hospitals overrun with sick people, as they have been for every winter of your lifetime.

All because we are led by a man who has risen far above his level of ability, and should never, in truth, have advanced beyond the county council. Micheál Martin is a perfectly capable man, if what you are looking for is somebody to get the council to fix a pothole. But having him lead the country through a crisis?

We should not be shocked by where we are. Useless.
