Very pleased to attend today's @AlzSocNI event @niassembly to mark the beginning of #DAW2022 with @Kelmba and @DannyDonnelly1. This year's theme is diagnosis. Memory loss could be a sign of dementia and I would urge anyone with concerns to seek support: alzheimers.org.uk/get-involv…

Children from all backgrounds & parts of NI will be severely impacted this summer if this issue is not resolved. @duponline needs to reflect on the impact of their refusal to form an Assembly & Executive is having & will continue to have on the most vulnerable members of society.
Funding for "holiday hunger" payments in Northern Ireland this summer is still not in place, according to the Department of Education bbc.in/38pJBCr

Bluffer’s guide to NI Protocol. Those who voted Remain and lost (ie the majority) have adjusted to Brexit & are getting on with making it work, while those who voted Brexit and won ie the DUP) are furious and want to rip the whole thing up. Have I understood that correctly?

Proud to again represent South Belfast as an MLA after signing the Undertaking and Roll of Membership @niassembly. Disappointing and shameful that @duponline is preventing me from carrying out my job to the standard my constituents expect. We all have work to do.

Alliance leader @naomi_long says she’d be happy to support both UUP and SDLP nominations for Speaker as “we just want someone to do the job”. She urges DUP to “take time to reflect” on its refusal to support a Speaker today

It is absolutely reprehensible that ⁦@duponline⁩ is putting patients ‘at risk’ thru their latest power-play. Our health service is in crisis and the DUP seem indifferent to it. Shameful! NI health: Patients 'at risk' w/o Stormont executive: bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-i…

With @hope4mefibroni estimating that 7500 people in NI have M.E., it is welcome that today marks the first ever #WorldMEDay. It is clear we need to better understand M.E. and it is vital that we improve outcomes for people suffering from this condition.

"Also a good result for Claire Hackett in her first election, finishing with 3,181 votes ahead of the UUP, Alliance’s best result in Mid Ulster since 1982." The year I was born!! Obviously I am destined to bring @allianceparty success in #MidUlster 😜
New blog post, took a few days but I've finally written about #AE22, looking at the result for each party and in each constituency, along with many fun electoral facts. jackarmstrong.home.blog/2022…
