    Wish someone would ask Mehole if he has read all the papers, last time round on the nursing homes he was quicker than ROG dodging a tackle, Mehole would give Pontious Pilate a run for his money.

    Mehole should have the answer about Harney, if he only asks, maybe she will fup him off.

    Reilly has some financial bothers at the moment which as a businessman he could sort out pretty quickly, pretty sure everyone has placed him in a difficult position and he cannot react as normal because of his ministerial post, people are using the Press to keep pressure on him.

      All this disinformation is one thing, what about disclosure of interest? The owner (former owner...?) also denied having any business or political links with the Minister, now also shown to be at odds with the truth.

      From your previous experience you should know all that.....

      Up to a few days ago I still had high hopes for Dr. O'Reilly; from what we now know the best the Minister can hope to say is that he has been a bit naieve, the and if you believe most of what is being said it would put him in the realm of Burke et. al. Couple that with his unfortunate business investments (also at odds somewhat with is portfolio), and he can't buy a break if you still want to believe in him.

      In any case he has greatly damaged his own credibility and by that of his position. Look at his performance yesterday in the cold light of day - even the constant questioning is preventing him from even attempting to do his job. He should have stepped away, sorted whatever needs sorting in his private and business life and then returned to whatever portfolio would be available. It is now looking a bit late for that.

              Now now TNT that happened quite some time ago. OD is like that cranky aunt, uncle, granny or grandad worth putting up with all the contrived BS for the odd chuckle you may get. One thing you dont do is take him (or her) seriously as I am fairly certain he (or she) does not believe a word of what they type.

                Labour Party Chairman Colm Keaveney appeals for party unity
                Updated: 08:38, Friday, 5 October 2012



                Labour Party Chairman Colm Keaveney has appealed for party unity in the wake of the resignation of junior minister Roisin Shortall.




                In an internal email seen by RTÉ, Mr Keaveney said there is "another context" to recent events which the party leader has not yet been able to articulate publicly.
                Mr Keaveney emailed Labour councillors and local representatives calling for party unity and acknowledged the internal concerns raised since Ms Shortall's resignation.
                Following a meeting with Tánaiste and party leader Eamon Gilmore, Mr Keaveney said they had agreed to focus more on fixing the problems than on fixing the blame and to seek a way forward.
                He said they have agreed to look at structural and other changes to improve communications.
                Mr Keaveney appealed for party unity over the next few months, which he said will be the toughest of Labour's time in Government.

                  A Labour schism at some point in the future is looking more and more likely. It may happen after government, who knows.

                    There will be few enough Labour Party TDs after the next election, maybe not enough of them to have an internal fued.

                      I'm not a labour supporter yet seems somewhat obvious and rather sad, that it will be Labour TD's who will carry the can in the next election in probably some similar manner to the Greens whereas FG will waddle along in the manner that FF have continued.

                        Thing is they are losing TDs so rapidly that they may not make the next scheduled election. This is a government in meltdown and they are now losing the plot on many fronts. For instance this morning Quinn berated the British Education minister when it was pointed out to him by Kenny (Pat...) that what Quinn is going ahead with is the opposite to what the rest of the world is doing. Quinn then admitted this was a 'political act'. Some political act, make the big play, but not thought it out, don't consult with interested parties, don't think of the consequences.

                        This is a government who are now showing they haven't a clue (across the board) about how you govern.

                        How long will Reilly last (gone b4 Christmas...?), how long will Enda remain teeshock?

                          Agreed.

                          It was indeed foolish of me to believe what Ruairi Quinn said on the floor of the Dáil. Clearly, a liar like Quinn isn't fit for office.

                          Luckily for the democratic process, Doctor Reilly was quick to correct Quinn's lies at the earliest possible opportunity.

                          On the matter of the Balbriggan care centre - and here I realise that timelines are challenging for mouth breathers to follow, so I'll try to put this as simply as possible:-

                          What we know (to date)

                          The HSE identified Balbriggan as a priority in 2007.

                          The HSE identified a site in Balbriggan during the previous government's time in office. However, negotiations for this site fell through in November 2010.

                          The HSE signed a lease with the developer of a site [owned by a Reilly supporter] in September 2011. At that time Shortall was responsible for Primary Care clinics, so she must - or should have if she was on top of her brief - been aware of this lease.

                          Then, in June 2012 - i.e. nine months after that lease had been signed - Shortall instructed the HSE to revise its priority listings - - an act that the intelligent among us would regard as political interference. But Shortall's political interference seemingly didn't affect the status of Balbriggan which remained in 44th place on the list.

                          So what I'd like explained by the Reilly haters is as follows:-

                          1. Why haven't they condemned Shortall's political interference with the HSE's list in June 2012?

                          2. Why, given that the HSE had signed a lease for the Balbriggan site in September 2011 - a time when, it should be noted, Shortall was the Minister responsible - Balbriggan was still on the waiting list for "priority locations in which a care centre should be built", 9 months later?

                          In summary, if Shortall had had her way, then the HSE would have been squandering taxpayers' funds on leasing a site in Balbriggan (leased during her time in office) for no purpose. Fortunately, Doctor James Reilly, spotted the insanity of Shortall's actions and intervened to ensure that the taxpayer would obtain some benefit from the Balbriggan site that had been leased under Shortall's watch.

                          The Irish taxpayer is very fortunate that Shortall has mounted her donkey and trotted away into well-deserved obscurity.

                            Interesting to see "stroke" Reilly featuring in the Prime Time program this evening over riding his officials on their recommendations on how National Lottery money should be spent. Shocked to see that Reilly's local patch did really well who would have thought and him such an honourable gentleman.....
