Government spin story just doesn’t add up

This Government keeps telling us what their economy has achieved but it doesn’t add up at all with hundreds of people on trolleys in our hospitals and waiting lists as long as your arm, evictions, lack of social housing, rural crime out of control, drug misuse, bank repossessions and flooding throughout the country.

We need to take a leaf out of Holland’s book and give back the medical cards to people who need them. An increase in pensions and social welfare is also in need and end the homelessness of people sleeping in doorways because they can’t afford rent. People should think of all these things before they cast their votes.
