        Perhaps inspired by the all male panel that turned up today to discuss the scandal?

          Don’t be introducing logic there Bertie, let the angry white males have their moment.

          1. Cian

            Yeah. Ignore the reality that Cervical Check has never had a 17:1 ratio of men to women. It has tended to be 50:50.

            No no no no. NO. This is important. It’s a serious business and stop trying to derail the conversation with your ridiculous attempts at whataboutery.

            there’s a great point in this cartoon but I think it has been somewhat lost by painting it as a man Vs women issue which it clearly isn’t. the artist is entitled to draw what she likes and no one is asking her to change it

      +1 It really does. Communication failings are endemic in this scandal and many previous ones.

      1. realPolithicks

        To be honest though I think it goes beyond “communication failings”, there is a culture of secrecy and coverup in Ireland which is endemic. You only have to look at the mother and baby homes, the sexual abuse scandal, the garda corruption, bertie ahern, [he who must not be named] the list goes on and on. And what will happen, a commission or tribunal will be set up which will last for some years, a report will be issued talking about “systems failures” or some other BS and nobody will be held accountable. It’s predictable and sad.

      Well we won’t be shipping the abortions to America to be performed but it’s good that you are calling for some professionalism in the provision of abortions following Repeal. Women in Ireland have clearly suffered enough.

      1. Gringo

        You are so right. The wellbeing of Irish women is at the heart of everything these people do.

      That’s right use shoddy health care for women to justify perpetuating shoddy health care for women in the constitution.

    Our adversarial legal system ultimately benefits the fee gathering legal profession the major cancer feeding on the citizens of this State.

    Hello Annie
    Is this available to purchase?

    It’s exactly what my new office is missing.
    Also, would it be ok to use it for my background on Thursday?

    Thanks, Vanessa

        I can’t sell it I’m afraid because some guy insisted I change it to put more women in it and now it’s kind of messed up.

          I’ll just have to close my eyes and pretend half of them are wimmin. I think one of them is Frilly. A man can dream

      Hi Vanessa Well I hadn’t planned on selling it , no.
      But if you’d like to put it on your background (on Thursday?) by all means

    Its an easy fact check to look up the senior management structure for the HSE and do a little gender split.
    Including our Minster for Death, ahem, I mean Minister for Health, we find that there are 16 Men and 6 Women.

    There are 18 “suits” in the cartoon above. To be representative, there should be (rounded up from 4.9086) FIVE women in there.

    I hope that settles it.

        Whoever said that we were an island of saints and scholars was a master of fake news for sure.

        The American analysts were responsible for the errors, and HSE responsible for the non-disclosure/cover up. But you knew that already, you cold blooded reptile. These are real issues affecting real people – not some intellectual exercise or debate where you can show you’re the smartest boy in the class.

    1. Sheik Yahbouti

      Stephen, whilst I’m sure your analysis is correct, it’s not about that for Cian and his chums – you understand? ;-)

        It’s a busy day at the troll farm trying to distance the HSE from CC..

        The contrarions are out in force..
