Or maybe not, maybe he meant it, maybe he didn't.

They need to stop leaking and doing interviews and go back to formal statements.

Because they seem to just say the first thing that comes to mind half the time
Aye getting annoying at this stage, leaks left ,right and centre. Figure still high etc. Nearly a year in lockdown now

Leak a bit of a press release and see what the public reaction is then tailor the official response to somewhere in the middle ground.

No it's only politics between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael. They are only interested in what the opinion polls say.

Down the M8 from Cahir to Cork and back and around Clonmel today traffic wasn't far off a normal day I think. The the idiots had the had the motorway coned off at the Glanmire exit diverting traffic up the slip road only for nobody to be there and back down the entry slip.

Everytime you just think we are taking baby steps in the right direction more crap turns up. Surely these Brazilians would need work visas etc to get in here?

How come these factories which must be one of the worse places for covid to spread are all working away when a few lads working outside on a house in the middle for nowhere aren't allowed work, ans: friends in government!, I'm not saying they should be shut down, but I don't think they should be given visa's for workers from Brazil at the moment either.

Well if they paid more then they might, either way it doesn't matter no way should people be allowed travel from these high risk areas, it looks like we will be locked down until mid summer and all because of the messing at the boarders, 90% of cases here are now uk variant, most of that is probably down to 3 weeks of travel during December, the country is going to pay a heavy financial cost for the government mismanagement of this.

Just listening to the news and it seems that hotel quarantine will not take place for a few weeks yet over 6 weeks since it was considered essential, what is wrong with his country that they couldn't act on this with a bit more haste.
