It was criminal of the Brits and the arrogant horse racing industry to have let that go ahead.
How many cases here as a result of it I wonder?

It should never have went ahead. But lets take some personal responsibility as well, The amount of Irish I know that went across given the circumstances was absolutely staggering. Levels of stupid that I can't grasp.

I think the pressure is getting to everyone, especially the health minister, Foster and O’Neill. They are completely overwhelmed and getting information from everyone on what’s the best thing to do!

It’s a shambles and it’s showing, I’d have to say that if Martin and Big Ian we’re still in charge we’d have had a different response, but unfortunately we’ve two ministers that actually despise each other.
Never going to get agreement or a joined up approach.

The joined up approach should have been based, like foot and mouth,  on an All Ireland approach.  Simple as.  We are on an island. 

FFS, even Jamie Bryson agreed with this approach a few weeks ago.

Was reading that roughly 2 million people used the London underground daily for weeks before, during and after Cheltenham.

 684 Uk deaths. The death toll has doubled from around 1800 to 3600 in 3 days.

*12 in the 6 counties, 48 total.

MON is not striking a blow against unionism, but calling out unionism's inability to detach themselves from the incompetencies of London.  Arlene and co. appeared to be quite happy to let people in NI go to the grave rather than implement guidance that would have looked to align the whole island as one entity in our defence to this.  It really is total and absolute nuts!

Agree - pith the SDLP, Alliance and Greens etc. wouldn't start supporting O'Neill.  She may be inept but she's doing the right thing, as she did a few weeks ago re: closing the schools.  She was coreect then and is correct now.

Other political parties should back her instead of trying to score pokitical points.

By the way, anybody on here disagree with what she said?

Agree - can't blame them.  Folks must take personal responsibility.

Poor decision.

As John O'Dowd would say, shower of bastards.  In the midst of a pandemic our politicians as usual can't agree what day of the week it is, and are maybe even surpassing their usual levels of ineptitude.
From doubters to believers.

Will it ever end

If there’s any truth in the latest BBC reports that no PPE was promised to the north as part of a “joint” purchase by Conor Murphy - it would undermine MON statements & just reinforce the shit show that’s going on at local & national government level!

Years of DUP and SF under-funding the NHS and then not governing for 3 years has left us in a terrible place. They then shunned the health portfolio. Real leadership. Real integrity.
But SF base will love this confrontational MO'N. But people will die I hear you say? This party is comfortable with unnecessary deaths if they can strike a blow against Unionism.

Agreed

I genuinely don't believe that is the case here. I am not a big fan of SF but have seen enough posts from you two to suggest you hate them and that's fair enough but I just feel that, and I rarely feel this about any politician, she is actually being genuine here and not point scoring.

They are saying the same about the Atalanta / Valencia Champions league match was the catalyst for the wipeout in Bergamo,Italy.

You don’t believe that underfunding the NHS and keeping government locked up hasn’t hampered the Coronavirus response?
It’s debatable as to her reasons for grandstanding now I’ll concede that and they may be genuine but whatever about that, this last 8 or more years of firstly mis-rule and lately 3 years of no-rule has left our Health Service the worst of all 4 regions. That cannot be disputed. MO’N and others should take responsibility.
