oops, sorry about that. I see someone else at the FOF picked up on it too. thanks for posting - unfortunately, my remit as an Arts blogger means I can't really crowbar it into a post, unless you can write me a poem on why we should march on Saturday!

Good for you :)

Yeah Fiona I read that and in my haste to post posted the wrong date, D'Oh. Trying here to think of things that rhyme with vaccine. Ehm Maxine, taxing, maxing, vaxing! Ok I will stop now... ;)

@Fergal LOL thanks for that, you're a star :)

Hi! there

I just heard Pat Carey, the chief whip, state on Newstalk to Eamon Keane that the government believe the BEST OUTCOME for women is an enhanced screening programme BUT that they will consider adding in the cervical vaccination programme at a later stage.

If screening is the best outcome, then why was the vaccine programme announced earlier in the year and why are they still considering it?

Like all the other budget decisions, this one makes no sense and the more they try to rectify their mistake, the worse it gets.

Spare me!

Redmum, I was in the Dail gallery on Tuesday, when James Reilly was hammering into Harney. I have a quote recorded from the VP of SIPTU on the matter, to be put online 2m.

Thanks Red Mum, taxing will do nicely . . . Unfortunately I'll miss the march myself on Saturday - have to head off for work - but I really hope there's a decent turnout, and have notified all I can. Just need to finish that poem, and I can even blog about it too.
