Spin and presentation more important than health

Roy Beggs Junior has pointed out the disparity between the proposed increase in spending for the Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister and that designated to health.

"It is staggering to think that the DUP-Sinn Fein Office of the First Minister and Deputy First Minister is receiving greater priority than our National Health Service. That this is occurring at a time when health expenditure in the rest of the UK is rising at a significantly greater level will only increase the unacceptable disparity between health care in Northern Ireland and elsewhere in the UK."


Incredibly spending on the OFMDFM has increased from £32m in the previous devolved administration to £73.9m in the current dispensaton.

It takes a lot of money to keep the rictus grins of the Chuckle Brothers in place.
