    Just what you would fear...a single health service will mean making the well- working private system as inefficient and badly run as the public system.

    Maybe not the HSE itself, but a shĂ­tstorm in any case.

    Catherine Shanahan: Going public with private concerns as effective nationalising of hospitals has come into sharp focus

    Spin in full overdrive. O'Brien leaves with a reported €100,000/year pension.

    Varadkar gave a woeful performance on Six-One last night. You could almost see his mind ticking over about getting rid of this pesky issue so he can reflect in the glory of the more than likely repealing of the Eighth.

    He was Minister of Health at the time. It's a bad state of affairs when you hark back for a steadier pair of hands like Enda, this guy is a complete spoof merchant and Peter Barry must be turning in his grave.

    But wouldn’t it be worth it to know that he would never go to jail, would have no problems getting planning permission, and will have a whopper of a pension.

    That's what a €5m Strategic Communications Unit gets you.

    It seems the memos were being circulated when FF/FG were negotiating forming a govt and the driver was not at the wheel - although obviously still drawing the ministerial salary and accumulating the ministerial pension.

    Varadkar, as should be clear to everyone now, lacks empathy with "lesser" people. This could prove fatal, eventually, in such a high profile job.

    Wonder if this will turn out to be a massive headache for An Taoiseach? Thought I heard on Moaning Ireland this morning through a haze of bare wakefulness that Varadkar, as Minister for Health, was given the memos about the false negative tests in 2016. If so, then one can legitimately ask if he knew about the false negative tests and, if so, did he enquire as to what was being done to let the women involved know of this?
    There's probably going to enough plausible deniability to cover the minister and various mandarins.

    A supreme irony of this tragedy is that Emma Mhic MhathĂșna, who has been told she is dying (a single mother with 5 young children) was used in the information/publicity campaign for the HPVV. A vaccine aimed at preventing cervical cancer.

    A big problem here is the level of disclosure that’s not happening. There is talk of changing this with regards patients but I would like to see the HSE (and others) publish details of all its legal settlements, keep patients names out of it if they wish, but hiding problems behind out of court settlements and NDA’s can’t be right when it’s a public service.

    Were it it not for Vicky insisting on this matter being public none of this would happen.

    Ya, bloody socialised medicine. Instead of delivering accountability and improving services, what we need is a system where most of those women couldn't have afforded a cervical check in the first place.
