The vaccine roll out for us is going to be too slow for me it looks like.
Bollocks. We're getting a two dose vaccine, from Moderna. Or we should be, if we weren't fucking off to some shithole country before the second dose.
I wonder is it worth putting off the trip until the second dose.
Dammit. I nearly got mangled by a cunt in an SUV the other day. This is exactly how they die, just one last job. I'll never get out.
Leo is a fucking ballbag
He’s just pretty fucking shameless. Even Martin had the good grace to bluff when asked a similar question. Varadkar is developing a haughy like ability to blatantly and casually lie.Leo is a fucking ballbag
At least Donnelly has an excuse for his incompetence (ie: he's a cretin).
but Leo has a brain in his head. He just chooses not to use the fucking thing.
I don’t think he’s the same level of “dig out” personal corruption as Bertie. Power and prestige are his motivators.He's got a real bertie 2.0 vibe to him. I'm not sure FG supporters see that either. I don't like him or his PR machine.
The oul Dunphy and Roisin Shortall from the Soc Dems were on the Tonight show last night talking about this kind of shit. Their main point being that at no point has there been any proper attempt made to keep track of whether people travelling to and from Ireland are actually quarantining/isolating as they should be. Basically, filling out a form and answering a phone call means you could actually just be doing whatever the fuck you want, which let's face it is a hefty enough part of what happened at Christmas there.filled out a passenger locator form for my trip back to Ireland last friday
ended up not travelling so tried to notify the locator people of my change of plans. Found an e-mail on the website which it said should be used in the event of any of the details on the form changing. E-mailed to say I would no longer be travelling.
On saturday morning I got the standard text telling me to self-isolate for 14 days and provided me with a URL that would help me find a GP, would I need one.
Ignored the above message as I got the same one when I returned to Ireland last October, even though I was travelling from a green country at the time.
On monday I got another text asking if the address I mentioned I was staying at, had changed. I clicked the button to say that it had. I then got redirected to the same web page as step 2 above, which instructed me to use the same e-mail address as before. So I did, again.
Today I get a phone call from the contact tracing people asking me to verify I was still staying at the address that I provided on my passenger locator form. I told them no, that I hadn't actually returned to Ireland, that I could find no way to withdraw my locator form, and that I had e-mailed them twice to let them know this. The woman, to be fair, was really nice and apologetic about it. She thanked me for taking the call and said she would close out the case. And, of course, to make sure I filled out the form again when I eventually do return home.
So there you have it. Our super-efficient new arrivals follow-up process. What a fucking waste of time and effort that was. I realise that my case was probably a little bit different from normal, but if they had their shit together she could have been saved from wasting her time calling me, and could have been calling someone who actually is in the fucking country.
Oh, and if anyone wants to avoid having to self-isolate for 14 days, just say you changed your plans and aren't in the country. I would be fully confident they wouldn't be able to call bullshit in a million years.
