    #vinb Wed 11/7/2012: Nothing quite beats the Life of Reilly!

    Unusually for Vinny he has a show lined up on something which hasn’t happened yet. The Dáil personal statement by Minister for Health, James Reilly, which is expected at 9.55pm tonight about his investment in a private nursing home. This is five minutes before the Dáil adjourns for the night.

    James Reilly,TD, Minister for Health

    The controversy arose after the Minister’s name appeared on the Stubbs Gazette debt defaulters list when he and four co-investors failed to comply with a High Court order about the purchase of the Green Hills home in Carrick-on-Suir for €1.9 million.

    Both Micheál Martin, leader of Fianna Fáil, and Gerry Adams, Sinn Féin president, raised issues with the timing of tonight’s statement from the Minister.

    This should be a good, if not great, show tonight. And while Vinny will probably show the clip of the Minister’s statement in the house, you may see it yourself on the Oireachtas links on this site:

    Politics.ie - The Irish Politics Website - Leinster House Live > Dáil Éireann

    Expect Vinny to put a lot of pressure on Damien English as he stands by his man. But the opposition are baying for blood, so … who said fisticuffs!

    I'm sorry, but when you say James Reilly, what comes to mind for me is this guy:



    Juvenile I know, but I can't help it.

    It's not just the looks (although it is uncanny). It's the attitude and mannerisms. Fintan Stack could be modeled on Reilly.

    Total lightweight idiot, in my opinion, no credibility bwana, none at all.
    Should go back to 'indulging and joshing with his pals Sean Ardagh and Mammy whilst skewering some unfortunate who tries to do something.
    Despicable cruunth.

    Knives out!!!

    Although I still don't see what the fuss about someone appearing in Stubbs's is unless we have suddenly turned into a nation of Lady Bracknells.

    But at least Sarah is back - nyum, nyum.
