The future looks grim
I watched Prime Time last night.
It’s one of those “topical events” discussion programmes where the “topical event” was the Virus. Quelle surprise?
Anyhows they had a Top Doctor in the studio along with a Smug Cunt who fancies himself The debate was over the gubmint’s approach to the pandemic.
Now TD made a hell of a lot of sense. He pointed out that the initial lockdown was to “flatten the curve” to prevent hospitals being overwhelmed. That worked well so he said that the best approach now was to just let the Virus spread as there was sufficient capacity in the hospital system to cope. He quoted statistics to point out that the Virus was relatively mild to those who were under 65 and who weren’t obese. He said that this Virus will always be with us and we had better just get used to it.
SC however took a different view. He declared that the Virus had to be eradicated and the only way was a more or less permanent lockdown. He quoted the Faeroe Islands as a perfect example of how this can be achieved [seriously?]. He seemed oblivious to the fact that Ireland is close to Europe where there will be constant migration and fuck all chance of an entire continent eradicating a virus.
At this point I should mention that TD had to resign from his post because he didn’t chant the gubmint mantra, while SC is actually one of the gubmint’s advisers.
God help us all.
It’s worth watching [from 12:37 in].
Thank goodness for people like your Top Doctor.
To tell the truth, as he sees it, and bugger the consequences.
I am sure poems have been written about such conduct.
I hope that he gets a lot of support. Not from MSM obviously, but from people.
There was also the Top Doctor from Sweden who advocated the same course of action. Naturally he too was ignored.
A while back I wondered when face nappy rash would arrive:
It seems it has – they don't call it that, though:
You couldn't make it up! More visits to the GP, as if he didn't have enough to do……
Face mask acne, huh? Seems to me it's to be expected when most folks re-use the same face mask over and over again. It's akin to wearing a flexible (used) petri dish dish over your face. I agree with Grandad…you couldn't make this stuff up.
With no vaccine the TD was correct. For most people under the age of 60 with no underlying heath problems it is mostly a mild infection. Should it go into hyperimmune response mode that can be treated. Your TD was quite right to say herd immunity is the way forward. Why are so many governments of the fascist persuasion? They are also deaf to his common sense approach too.
Dr Martin Feeley and Prof. Samuel McConkey, the former the Top Doc mentioned. How or why was it that Feeley was easy to understand in that RTÉ broadcast and the other fellow with his bulging eyes, jerky body movements and persistent pushiness impossible? His tactic was to knock any interlocutor into submission with a verbal hammer, as a salesman does, especially someone selling an uncertain product. I liked Feeley's gentle reasoning but also the steel in his eyes. No wonder "the HSE actively dissociated itself from his remarks and rejected his suggestion that young people should be allowed to get the virus to develop herd immunity" – https://bit.ly/3nhmf4x. Hopefully, we will hear more from him.
