This is a political thread, nothing to do with abortion debate, so pro-lifers go elsewhere please to discuss angels on a pin (Reilly's attempted fix was not done in the interests of your cause anyway).
There is a psychological condition called the 'Dilbert syndrome' that describes a type familiar to us all , especially in the corporate world, of a complete fool who thinks he is the messiah, and who rises on the back of his/her deluded self-belief. Psychologists tell us that it the very cognitive disabilities that make them foolish, that also make them blind to their own disability.
Reilly is the greatest example that has blundered into Irish politics since ...... You fill it. Pauraig Flynn? Ivor Callelly?
Reilly's vast arrogant ego hides the otherwise obvious fact that he is a fool. We are told in the media of his intelligence all the time, in spite of the only evidence we have being to the contrary ,ie the constant cock-ups he has made in Health (is he the only 'entrepreneur' who has actually lost money in the nursing home 'business'?).
As VB points out in the IT , how could anyone have imagined packing the inquiry with Galway consultants and HSE people could have been acceptable to anyone?
Reilly promised a world class inquiry and then he produced this. How could anyone trust a secret inquiry when the objective of its creators was so blatantly obvious? Does Reilly live in a bubble of consultant buddies? Has he no idea how the rest of the people see them?
He has shamed the country around the world again. When we should have been humbly apologising and grovelling, he arrogantly attempted an old fashioned stroke in support of his buddies.
In the name of God go! Have you no shame?
Sadly we know the answer.
