Wrong decision to split family

Either the Western Trust has not heard of David Cameron's thrust for the general well-being of the people, or they choose to ignore it.

Not only that, but Christmas seems to be the worst possible time to separate a family. How can officials justify separating Lily, Kathleen and Mary Mallon (News, November 27)?

It seems more like Scrooge than the spirit of Christmas. One wonders if the people of Northern Ireland would be willing to set up a fund to keep these elderly people together?
