So much for an “Ireland of equals”

2 adamsAs the Assembly Executive pursues the closure of A&E units and cuts to essential health services in Northern Ireland, more and more people are being forced to travel further and further and wait longer and longer for treatment.

It would seem that Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has come up with an innovative solution though. Instead of telling his colleagues to veto cuts to the health service in the Assembly Executive, Mr Adams has chosen to get treatment abroad. It’s easy – you just get Friends of Sinn Fein in New York to help out with a stay in a luxury apartment in downtown Manhattan over a period while you get treatment at a private clinic at a cost of $30,000, and sure while you’re at it, why not get a €2,000 business class flight to New York so you don’t have to mingle with the punters! That must be some “workers wage” you’re on Mr Adams.
