“Political Games of Stormont Parties Jeopardising Cancer Screenings” – Cllr Mullen

Cllr. Denise Mullen has called for more investment in Northern Bowel and Cervical screening programs.

Speaking today, Cllr Mullen said “The North's bowel and cervical screening programme is lagging worryingly behind. Compared to Britain where screening is offered to younger people and a more sensitive smear test is used, the North is in a dangerous position. This is putting people’s lives at risk.”

Cllr Mullen continued “The playground games of the Stormont parties means that improvements to screening programmes can’t have a guarantee of funding. This will have devastating impacts on individuals and their friends and families.”

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
