4th Quarter Lockdown 2021 - YELLOW ALERT



Compare Thursday headline blitz - Sunday massaging of the collective head to todays steady now, as they get their story straight as to how they can sell their poisoning of the nation is not the reason hospitals have been overwhelmed for 3 months, with tens of thousands of adverse reactions and AIDS+ Covids, and we still need to keep up the march to medical techno Communist utopia.


The RTE tracker is quite good. It shows the chaos among our managerial class and the narrative set ups and inversions: blame the unvaccinated (obviously) but be prepared to blame yourselves. We’re “proceeding with reopening” but you don’t get normality back. Holohan & Glynn & Reid etc are bureaucratic survivors (like Fauci) they sail on regardless. But they’re going all in on this. If they fail I don’t see how they can keep their positions. The Health bureaucrats are cleverly diffusing responsibility in the eventuality it goes even more wrong. But the fact remains we are much less healthy and less free than other countries - after following the health diktats - the health dictators can’t escape that.

There’s still 2 years later no widespread advice to citizenry on how a COVID infected person should treat themself to stay out of hospital


Poll by gript on the extended measures.



He’s officially insane. He’s still talking about “defeating the virus”.

Speaking in advance of the Cabinet meeting, Taoiseach Micheál Martin said the country is in a “much different position to last year. We have reopened significant sections of society with significant
“I think we need to protect all of that and we need to proceed with caution over the next number of months to defeat this virus.

They never learn. Still trying to manage the message: ‘the important thing is this is good. We’ll tell you what you won’t like later, in our own good time, when we’ve figured out how to “message it”’

“I think that is a significant decision that will help in dealing with the ongoing challenge of Delta and of Covid.
“In addition to that there is a whole range of measures Nphet is recommending around behaviour and around the continuing use of masks in a whole range of settings and also in terms of the vaccination certificates which Government will consider later.”


Interesting Nephet specifically calling for wider use of COVID pass in indoor settings and specifically in bold that they “may recommend” the “reintroduction of restrictions” (not explained how extensive) if we the public don’t “comply” and get our infections down and it’s until “at least February 2022”



So how will they play it people are “compliant” and cases do not drop?
This is definitely a case of the beatings will continue until morale improves.

On another point, the co called passports have an expiry date and many were issued around May and had six months on them, unless they change the rules, large numbers of the population will have expired passports! Anyone know if they have a plan?



I would never expect anything more from them but it’s worth logging their quietism.

What a depressing Twitter the Executive Director has https://mobile.twitter.com/liamherrick

Irish Council for Civil Liberties in April 2021

The Irish Council for Civil Liberties said that a digital certificate for Covid-19 vaccination cannot and should not lead to any type of discrimination.

Speaking on RTÉ’s Drivetime, ICCL Executive Director Liam Herrick said that anything that allows discrimination in terms of access to goods and services, or employment “raises an obvious question … discrimination”.

“It also puts people in a position of being forced indirectly to take a vaccine, which raises questions of bodily integrity and the principle of consent to the vaccine programme.”


Irish Council for Civil Liberties in July 2021. He goes wishy washy and doesn’t stick to “civil liberties”

the Government’s approached this, in the last 10 days as a simple negotiation between public health and industry.
“But all of the other issues - like employee rights, data protection, the consequences of establishing for the first time ever in Ireland a health surveillance system at the point of entry to pubs and restaurants - it’s not considering those issues at all.”



Wishy Washy Worrying about “the system” and “infrastructure” of monitoring us

We are particularly concerned that the infrastructure for verification does not exist and, in any event, would pose significant risks to data protection rights. The public health benefits of such a weak system of verification and enforcement are uncertain at best.

ICCL today


“Serious questions” is a long way from Wrong and Bad


Interesting to review today’s Twitter posts from the opposition parties

None opposes the apartheid system, none criticizes our health bureaucracy getting us in this mess. For Soc Dems it’s land hoarding today. Labour want a widows pension for the unmarried and “collective rights” (Ivana Trotskyite stuff). Both agree with SF’s main priority today - “safe zones” at Abortion Clinics.

God help us.


I think this is a fake war that will see a tracking app announced within 2 weeks.



Could Do Better

They really are on message today, about not reimposing restrictions, when there are restrictions in place, never ending permanent lockdown legislation restrictions, with more in the back pocket restrictions just in case.

There is no plan to reimpose restrictions but a “national effort” is now needed to bring Covid-19 under control in Ireland, according to the Minister for Health.

The national effort to date, was not national effort.
We need real national effort.
We need more national effort to make itself known.

What about 5 year plan national effort?
Then another 5 year plan national effort after that?

Any idea what this national effort might look like… anyone? :thinking:


Now we have confirmation no more reimposing restrictions means we have a whole raft of new restrictions in the wings, brand new super duper, new to market! - Ok, Got it! :+1:


It’s f**king ridiculous. We’re putting our liberty as dependent on pre-teens who we’re asking for collective action from. Absurd spoofer.

Dr Holohan said that Nphet is concerned of rising levels of transmission and said that “collectively, as a country” we need to look at how we are adhering to how public health measures.

Numbers are going up

Nphet said tonight that the incidence of the virus is growing at a “concerning rate”.
The highest incidence is in children aged 5 to 12.

Not old enough to drink. Not old enough to drive. But old enough to shame.


All the TDs who didn’t stand up for liberty before are in a logical trap they are unable to escape from - Sinn Fein and Social Democrats. They can now never oppose anything that “protects healthcare workers”. Labour are even more useless. They voted in favour.

Labour agreed to extend emergency powers as the country is entering a “very difficult winter”.

There are only 5 TDs worth a damn

Mr Donnelly said TDs stand up in the house and say they want to protect healthcare workers but many are planning to vote against legislation which will do that.
Independent TD Michael Healy Rae and Michael McNamara criticised Mr Donnelly.

And add Danny Healy Rae and Mattie McGrath and Verona Murphy



Ah Tony

Covid passes for gyms and hairdressers
Dr Holohan said he would “of course” be in favour of Covid passes for entry to gyms and hairdressers when asked by Independent.ie.
“Of course we would be in favour, the more we can see assurance of measures in place in different settings, the better,” he said.
“We would have no reason to have any concern about that and there is nothing to stop people in those sectors saying, that’s an additional security and safety measure that I can put in place to protect my staff, to protect my customers, that would be a good thing.”



Ah Tony, increasingly NPHT are being shown up for what they are, Power/attention mad academics who should be put back in the colleges they came from.


Avoiding commercial gyms, where sanitizers are overused, air is filtrated, water poisoned with chlorine can only be beneficial for any human.


Punch & Judy

Ah @corkfella don’t fall for their fake and phoney theatrics via the bought and paid for media, this is simple stage show (remember when MM said {or headline implied} they’d wind down NEPHT or cancel "scrap the passes… false hope), real politics means this would have happened for real last year heading into the bogus lockdown because the laughably bogus cases curve to the moon was a pitiful pump and dump… now we are suppose to believe the politicians are facing down NPHET via the headlines (yesterday), they’re having a laugh.

Covid: Taoiseach rules out another Christmas lockdown



I see the “Cases” that are suspected cases not hospital cases have gone into Father Ted territory once more, but thankfully it’s not January! :icon_rolleyes:

Here is a quick plot with the latest peak in “cases” with a straight t line average to end of year for a better sense of time and where we currently are at.

  • Top section is lab volume test, that red lien is the external labs (volume) blue hospital labs (volume)
  • Bottom section self evident!

While the chart does not show all 2020 data, the below pull from the start, and also include averages of each group heading for 2021 being the straight line totals. When the final figures come in end of Year, we can see how far off they were.

Cases Hosp. LAB All Labs External LAB Hospitalisations Deaths
2020 90407 770400 2368553 1598153 71181 2181
2021 465431 415% 2522654 227% 6587012 178% 4486591 181% 156773 120% 3897 79%

Remember 2021 figures include projections using average for each group heading in 2021 to plot out and fill to the end of year, excluding these to eoy projections, all groups where up YoY already by a significant factor.


I wonder how many of the 500 in hospital currently caught Covid in hospital ? It’s at least 1 in 10, might be 1 in 5
