"People will not be fooled by scripts that were written for Joe Hendron by members of the Progressive Democrats in the south who are committed to the privatisation of health or indeed by Fianna Fail or British Labour Party spin doctors who are more focused on negative campaigning and whose parties had delivered very little in terms of health.
"On the doorsteps many voters are asking us why the SDLP have refused to challenge anything in the health service since British direct rule ministers took over and have asked us if the SDLP's only interest in health is in point scoring against Sinn Féin." ENDS
