So what happens after Level 5?
Yep, it was the classic morning after the night before yesterday, as the implications of the new Level 5 restrictions sunk in. Politicians reported a mixture of anger and stoicism from their constituencies, and there were mutterings from TDs about the spectacular volte-face by Government on this matter. Those criticisms may become more vocal at parliamentary party meetings this evening.
