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.
