Plague Tapes #70

A Sunday like no other.  That was last Sunday and yet here we are almost a full week later with the post euphoric bliss of seeing Cavan being crowned the kings of Ulster, pervades this show.  A Bréifme love hangover, has really had an influence on the musical selections, starting with the melancholic summer nostalgia from the Sons of Southern Ulster, all the way through to The Impressions.

News: with Andrew

The only way to wrap your head around what is happening now, with the Goverment deciding on opening things back up again, inspite of cases bumping around 300 or so daily, is to recall the old phrase

He who pays the piper, calls the tune. 

So NPHET – which has been backed by about 70% of people in the public opinon polls who back current restrictions, wrote a 32page letter, half of which is appendices to medical and scientific papers, and darwing on the negative experieince in Europe when they attempted to open up in early October, saying that we could not come out of this Level 5.  The govenement wishes to ignore this expert group, so they commission Enrst & Young – and they even say it is unwise to open up restaurants,  and then they go ahead and lift restrictions anyway.  That is about the size of it.  Andrew says this with the conviction of someone who follows the science and data, but that is essentially where we are at. This is what happens when you are led by donkeys. 

So the message is stay safe and be sensible.
