So here we are a wee bit down the line and #noelthenurse and John McGuirk have started back tracking and bottom covering.
First of all though this this thread is a systematic demolition of the whole affair. @nursePollyRgn has been dogged in her pursuit of said demolition. In this thread she addresses the fake city and guilds cert in minute detail.
Mr Noel Pattern has explained that yes he did indeed amend the cert but only to make it more readable as he only has a bad copy of the certificate.
He states that he has not been able to get proper records from the UK yet but will soon.
He does acknowledge that he’s NOT a nurse. He does claim to be an operating department practitioner and further that care assistants are often referred to as nurses.
Yet you’ll see examples of him giving Medical information based on his experience as a nurse.
JSavethe8.ie and its communications director John McGuirk have acknowledged that Noel Pattern is not a nurse too.
However they hide behind the claim that it was an honest error due to their misunderstanding of medical job titles. McGuirk even posted a selfie with Noel Pattern at the anti choice parade (above).
They still maintain that Noel left the My Abortion Story campaign because he was bullied by pro choice activists.
In the previous post on Broadsheet I stated that this was either an attempted duping or incompetence. I believe the former. I wonder too will John McGuirk now change his amendment of the original Broadsheet post? I think not.
This is still being pursued and I strongly suspect there will be more updates to this sorry affair.
