Fianna Fáil Sligo-North Leitrim TDs Jimmy Devins and Eamon Scanlon have resigned the party whip over their opposition to cuts in breast cancer services at Sligo General Hospital, at least this is what we are told in the papers but don’t hold you breath because if you look carefully you will see that the boys are not ruling out supporting the government on all other matters
We have 2 local lads feeling the heat of local opposition to the stated HSE cuts for their region now for the last 2years
Why has it taken until now for the boys to open their mouths and take action, well the local hospital action group are getting some real support now from the local community and the prospect of new independent candidates popping up is causing the boys, to be seen to be doing something to stop local hospital services being taken away .
These two local opportunists are helping the most incompetent government stay in power
And I hope the people in Sligo give then a right trouncing in the next election
