Ireland is a basket case now. Tánaiste (deputy PM) Leo Varadkar said this afternoon that the unvaccinated should be considered as “the new vulnerable” and that until they are jabbed, they should live like it’s March 2020.
This from the guy who held a topless frat party with his bum-chums in Phoenix Park last year, when the whole country was locked down indoors and maintaining social distancing. Varadkar was Taoiseach (PM) at the time.
“At the start of the pandemic older people were those most at risk and we asked them to stay at home and that saved lots of lives and prevented a lot of illness.
Now unvaccinated people of all ages are the ones who are most at risk. These are people who are not fully vaccinated.T hey are the new vulnerable, and they are at greater risk over the next few weeks than at any point since this pandemic began.
I need to emphasise that very strongly. The message to people who aren’t vaccinated is to get vaccinated and to take every precaution as though it was March 2020 when it comes to what you do between now and then.”
Vardkar and the current Taoiseach Micheál Martin, should be running for their lives. But romantic Ireland is indeed dead and gone. Last night, the Irish parliament voted to introduce vaccine passports as a condition of entry to the country’s pubs, restaurants and café’s.
That’s right. To dine indoors, you will need to show that you have been double jabbed or recovered from covid in the previous six months. What has become of my country, of my people?
