    Many are reading this. Many will read about it tomorrow's papers.

    There seems to be only one person in the whole wide world - John Biffo - who does not admit that the PCCs in Swords and Balbriggan are strokes. That is because he does not believe that all politics are local. He probably also believes that the earth is flat, green cheese in the moon etc

    Tomorrow's Busines Post is speculating that the Childrens Hospital will be in Blanch

    Are Leo and Joan being rewarded for agreeing to the Strokes? Reilly got his PCC's so they get the Hospital

    And the IMO have decided that it will postpone balloting its members until the LRC decides on outstanding issues around historic rest days etc. Reilly and the HSE are likely to land themselves in deeper sh*t if they think that they can go ahead and change working practices without the need for consultants to jump on board.

    Well, if John Biffo is wrong and you're right it could be argued that what the bearded wonder did was nothing but good politics.

    Now, I'm sure that's not what you meant to mean, but...

    You've no idea how wring it felt to be typing that in the first instance. However, my point still holds. My point being that not all politics is local, and that this is a case study in this small fact.
