    In regards to the conservatives and Boris in charge right now, would you seriously prefer Corbin and Abbott if so that honestly beggars belief. The ventilators are the main medical device that we’re short on and until now the numbers required could never have been foreseen.

    If Boris gets us through this pandemic and the economy back on its feet on par or better than the rest of the world does and he delivers Brexit then I’m sure he’ll smash the next labour leader for another 6

    Amazingly, a poll reflected that 60% of Americans approve of how he is handling it and he has his highest approval rating in office - 49%!!!

    Jesus wept, as you lot like to say (my late Dad did too!)!

    Great comment by me, but it didn’t deserve to be here twice! Not sure how that happened, can mods delete one? The less good one, of course, please.

    He can be amusing, in a buffoon type of way.
    Think his only hope of being reelected was the continued upward curve of the stock market hopefully that's ****ed him but who knows. Certainly ****ed my pension if I'm around to get the bit that's left:(

    Fair play to courts in this instance dealing with scumbags
    A father and son have been refused bail after they were accused of spitting on two gardaí on duty in Dublin city centre.

    Dublin District Court heard concerns the incident was at a time of heightened public health fears surrounding the spread of Covid-19.

    Judge Miriam Walsh was told a crowd gathered around as a drug search got "out of hand" and the incident was filmed by passers-by. It was posted on social media.

    Paul Clarke Snr, 49, and his son James Clarke, 27, of Clonard Road, Crumlin, Dublin, who are both on disability benefits, were charged with assaulting gardaí acting in the execution of their duty.

    James Clarke had additional charges for obstructing the officers and a breach of the peace. The incident allegedly happened at O'Donovan Rossa Bridge, Dublin 8 this morning.

    They were refused bail and remanded in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on 31 March.

    Paul Clarke Snr stood wearing a surgical face mask throughout the bail hearing.

    Garda Kate Mulligan and Garda Kevin Carthy told the court they were objecting to bail and they cited public fear surrounding Covid-19.

    Garda Mulligan told Judge Miriam Walsh a crowd gathered around and recorded the incident which she has since seen on social media.

    Efforts were being made to get the footage. She said Paul Clarke Snr was accused of spitting on gardaí carrying out their duties.

    Opposing bail she cited, "other factors in relation to this in light of Covid-19, there is already fear in the population".

    Defence counsel Sarah Connolly said her client had a kidney transplant three years ago and also suffered from ulcers and gallbladder problems.



    Garda Kevin Carthy told the court a drug search was being carried out on a different male and things "got out of hand". He said both accused started spitting at him and his colleague. "I was spat at, at least twice," he said.

    The barrister said Paul Clarke Snr accepted tensions were heightened but he denied spitting on anyone.

    Denying him bail, Judge Walsh said as result of current matters "everybody's lives have totally changed" however the accused were innocent until proven guilty.

    She noted the Prison Service could assist Mr Clarke Snr in relation to his health difficulties.

    Objecting to bail in the case of James Clarke, Garda Carthy said in light of Covid-19 it was a very serious offence while gardaí were trying to carry out duties.

    They were taken to Kilmainham Garda Station after they were arrested at about 11.25am this morning.

    The court heard father and son made no reply when charged.
