    Tonight #vinb will look at the Governments performance to date and will no doubt suggest many areas where there is still room for improvement

    Also, what future for the health service - does it have any?

    In a nutshell, tonight's show is on the IMF demands for health and social welfare cuts and asks what is James Reilly up to in Health ...

    Tomorrow‘s papers Catherine Halloran, Political corespondent Irish Daily Star Catherine Halloran (popcornhack) on Twitter



    ... and what did AJ say today?

    Great op norm

    Poor lineup though.

    Although averil is the first member of her family to appear on the vb show, go to college
    or be a member of a party that bankrupted the country, so fair play to her.

    Not the biggest fan of Sara Burke, but she does go behind the headlines and do more than regurgitate the press releases .... Which is a bit of a novelty in irish journalism

    Perhaps they can't string one, but I bet that they can both spell 'sentence' correctly!

    This is what La Burke wrote about Reilly in her blog back in March:

    "For his end of year one report card, I give him a B for enthusiasm and effort, a C for the work on bringing down waiting times, but a D overall for the big picture stuff as he has yet to pull off key parts of the big reform – the building blocks of reforming health insurance, what happens VHI, how we get to universal access… My reprot card comment would be he ‘works hard but tends to blunder through, needs to apply himself more, work out the detail, make sure it happens and bring people with him"

    I wonder what she'll say tonight.
