This Woman's Life: Yes, Minister - you need to come and see what life's really like here

Galway is a difficult city to be sick in. We might be the Capital of Culture going forward but going backwards we are the patients on trolleys that the minister forgot

The Minister for Health will come to Galway. Well he might come to Galway. He will possibly come to Galway. There is a good chance that he will come to Galway. There is a fair to middling chance that he will come to Galway. There is a mediocre chance that he will come to Galway.

Some say, pigs will fly before he will come to Galway. Others say Donald Trump will perfect and recite a book of Haiku in Irish before the Minister for Health will come to Galway.

To be fair to him or as we say locally, in fairness, the Minister was going to come to Galway. He intended to come to Galway. His visit to University Hospital Galway was imminent. He polished his shoes for Galway. He read all the files about Galway.
