*THREAD* As many of you now by know, last week a sitting FG #MEP & candidate in #MidlandsNorthWest (name is disclosed this time) tried to publicly dismiss the data I presented re: our health system. I've thought about this a lot & am now asking people to #refute or #clarify ⬇️
2/ I said: "Ireland statistically has the WORST #waitinglists in Europe."
(Said MEP suggested waiting lists numbers were high because patients don't attend appointments - and that the technology to collect data could be wrong)...
3/ Throughout the meeting I said:

⛔️500,000 + people are on #waitinglists for #appointments
⛔️70,000 + await #daycase and inpatient #procedures
⛔️80,000 + women await smear test results
⛔️10,000 + patients left on #trollies incl. elderly, and children...

I'll be covering latest #EE19 Dublin constituency
hustings, starting shortly. @IrishTimes poll standings today:
* Frances Fitzgerald, FG, 22%
* Barry Andrews, FF, 18
* Lynn Boylan, SF, 13
* Clare Daly, I4C, 10
* Ciaran Cuffe, Greens, 9
* Alex White, Lab, 8
* Mark Durkan, FG, 7
Those attending the Association of European Journalists hustings are Ms Boylan, Mr White, Mr Cuffe, Mr Andrews, Ms Daly and Ms Fitzgerald. #EE19 - MC Richard Moore jokes "all the heavy hitters" are here.
Clare Daly is first up to speak, saying she is an "unusual" candidate as most people who want to be MEPs are at "either the beginning or end of their careers".

Cue Alex White looking around slowly and faux dramatically. #EE19

More Old Bailey Sophistry from Codpiece Cox admitting that in order that today's vote is NOT an attempt to repeat #MV2 (to comply with Speaker Bercow's re-iteration of 1604 convention) it is also NOT a #MV in sense of #EUWA18 Section 13.1.b

Attempt by Codpiece Cox to scare House into voting in a #MeaninglessVote for #WA (only) solely to secure the offered (actually only technical) extension of #BrexitDay from Apr 12 to May 22 sans guarantee of any other extension. Sophistry.

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Of course, if the House falls for Codpiece Cox's scare tactics, none of this will figure in future utterances by #TheresaMay's #Brexihadis - the headlines will scream 'Parliament approves #Brexit arrangements' (sans qualification or caveat).
