This year I was contemplating given Kathy Sinnott a preference in the European Elections this year (considering Fianna Fail are getting none) but I remembered why not when at work on Saturday I was reading an old copy of the Cork Independent (free sheet) and it had profiles on lots of the candidates in the Locals and Europeans. They asked them to list their priorites, on of Kathy’s was and I quote
Preventing the HSE from promoting Euthanasia in Cork University Hospital
Okay so firstly, what??? You can promote Euthanasia? I didn’t know that. Secondly people in CUH want you to get better not die (I hope).
Another thing that works against her in my opinion is that she is co-president of the Independence/Democracy group which is the group that UKIP is in. I certainly do not want to withdraw or diminish the EU in anyway so nope, no vote for Kathy.
The only reason I was going to vote for Kathy Sinnott was because, if you email her on any issue she gets back to you with her answer either with or against you. Unfortunately can’t get over her statements such as the one above to actually vote for her!
