Well, that’s it then.
The Irish gubmint has gone into full blown panic mode.
With their typical strange logic, they can panic while telling the rest us to stay calm. They are of course following the lead of the WHO who announced that this is now a pandemic, followed by a plea for people not to panic. They then go on about the number of deaths but tell us not to panic. They then announce that they are worried that young people aren’t panicking enough. They should make up their minds.
Anyhows all our schools, colleges, universities and a moxy load of other institutions are to shut down from today [but don’t panic]. People are being asked to work from home and not travel [but don’t panic]. All indoor events with more than 100 attendees are banned [but don’t panic]. All outdoor events with more than 500 attendees are banned [but don’t panic].
Of course some twats are in full blown panic mode and the toilet-roll virus is now widespread throughout the land along with bread, flour, rice and a few other items. I actually do need some groceries [my fortnightly delivery] but discovered that one outlet has all its delivery slots booked out until next Tuesday. I tried another outlet but their site had crashed presumably from overuse.
Having been down to the village to stock up on real essentials [pipe baccy] I got home to hear that libraries will be closed too.
I finished my last library book last night.
I have nothing to read for the next two or three weeks.
Now I’m starting to panic.
