I thought this Period of Insanity was drawing to a close.
Now they are taking about giving the
Stazi Gardai powers to enter and arrest us in our own homes.
I’m not even sure that the constitution would allow that but it scares me to think that they are actually considering the move. It’s also quite disconcerting to see the number who would support this measure, currently standing at 63% against 32.8% who would oppose it. It just shows how successful the Campaign of Fear has been. The sheeple are terrified.
They are also threatening us with another complete lockdown [how I hate that word] because they haven’t managed to eradicate the uneradicatable. Every day they drone out the latest figures – the number of new cases, the number of deaths [usually zero], the breakdown of male versus female, the mean age, the R number [and how it compares with other countries], the fortnightly average per 100,000 [and how it compares with other countries], the five day average per 100,000 [and how it compares with other countries] and then a league table of counties where the latest “outbreaks” have occurred. The simplest way to defeat this Virus would be to delete all their fucking spreadsheets.
I note that they always talk about “the number of new cases”. Now this could mean that someone has been tested yet shows only very mild [if any] symptoms and has only been tested for being a “close contact”. How many of those cases are serious? How many of them a year ago would have just taken a few aspirin and carried on normal life? Nevertheless the figures are droned out with a voice of doom implying they are all on life support.
And now the Licensed Vintners want to reintroduce Prohibition. This may sound like turkeys voting for Christmas but then they are the same crowd who were behind the smoking ban in pubs, so it is quite apparent that they are determined to destroy their own trade. Weird?
Are there any passing asteroids I could cadge a lift on to get away from this madness?
