As each day passes our Lords and Masters seem to get more confused.
They recently announced a change in their precious regulations which I don’t think even they understood. Our Minister for Crap Healthcare was interviewed on the news and tied himself completely in knots trying to explain them.
If you are a close contact and have had your booster and have had a dose of the Lurgy you don’t have to isolate, but if you have only had two doses and haven’t had Lurgy you have to get a test of some kind but if you haven’t had your boost and aren’t a close contact you have to isolate for five or maybe seven days and if there is an R in the month then you have to retest and become a close contact. Or something along those lines. There are more conditions in it than any computer programme I have ever written. And I have written a lot.
They’re at it again today It appears that they are beginning to see the light and are talking about “easing restrictions”. Knowing them that probably means that pubs can stay open until nine in March and we can all go back to attending funerals.
Even Holohan is showing dangers of cracking a smile. He says he hopes to be able to move “optimistically”, but added that we they also “don’t want to get ahead of ourselves”. Oh God no. We wouldn’t want to throw caution to the wind and act normally? Let’s drag out those restrictions as long as possible.
“We still need sufficient time, which we think is a little bit more time to elapse to say ‘well, look, there are some things that we might have feared we would see, that we haven’t fully seen yet’. We need to be certain that we’re not going to see them before we give advice to government that we’re ready to to ease – ease or change some of the current measures.”
Fuck! I haven’t a clue what that means. Either he’s cracking up or has been self medicating with something a bit more potent than the Virus.
Another minister adds
“I am hopeful for February because of where we are now but I think we have learned through Covid that guarantees aren’t a thing that anyone can give. I’d be hopeful for the easing of restrictions in February but we’ll have to see where we are by the end of January and see what NPHET advises.”
Why the fuck can’t she just say she hasn’t a clue?
They end up by saying that every restriction will be removed ….
other than mask wearing in indoor public areas and Covid passes.
