Tánaiste Leo Varadkar has said that local lockdowns remain an option for government, although local people responded by telling the tánaiste he can go and fuck off. Mr. Varadkar was speaking to reporters yesterday and said additional lockdowns are a policy option if there is an outbreak in a particular area but added “hopefully we won’t have to do that.”
The response from all over Ireland was unanimous and it seems pretty certain that because people are starting to see a return to normality, they will simply refuse to accept any more lockdowns.
Chairman of Cork City Council Brendan Murphy said “Leo can lockdown Castleknock if he wants or whatever posh D4 west-brit shite-hole he lives in but we’re finished with it now. We’re done. If he tells us to put Cork on lockdown again we’ll do the opposite and open every pub in the city tomorrow. I’d advise Leo to shut his hole.”
Kildare councillor Barney Fitzmaurice gave a similar reaction when he said “Oh just fuck off Leo. Fuck off as far away as you can and when you get there fuck off some more. Then when you get home fuck off again. No more lockdowns Leo. Fuck off!”
The tánaiste was apparently shocked by the reaction from around the country and has yet to respond but one thing seems certain, he can fuck off.
