    Default #VINB Mon 26/11/2012: Time for James Reilly to go?

    With the renewed calls for James Reilly to resign is it time for him to say bye-bye. Dr James Reilly says there is no justification for another motion of no confidence in him and he also said he would not change the way he selected primary care centres, an issue which continues to dog him.

    Fianna Fáil says the Minister has still not provided an adequate explanation as to why he bumped a number of locations, including two in his Dublin North constituency - Swords and Balbriggan - were added to the list of 35 at the last minute.

    A similar motion against Dr Reilly was defeated in September and former junior health minister Roisin Shortall resigned over the controversy. Under Dáil rules, another motion cannot be tabled until March.

    To add to his worries, the family of Savita Halappanavar say the Minister for Health, James Reilly, has until Thursday to agree to a public inquiry into her death or else they will take their case to the European Court of Human Rights.

    So, where does Reilly go from here? A good show is lined up for tonight. Reilly may well survive in the Dáil, but can he survive Vinny’s onslaught? Tune in to tv3 at 23:00 to find out …

    Sara Burke knows her stuff. I wonder if she'll be kind to James ...
    At 12 weeks the “clump of cells” toes curl, her mouth makes sucking movements, she has a human face and if you prod the tummy she will move in response

    I have giving the minister plenty stick myself in the last year. Yet if he goes will his replacement do better, not likely, so he may as well stay.

    Is that the same Sean Fleming who confidently assured Vinnie that Fianna Fail would win at least 43 seats in the 2011 election?

    The same Sean Fleming who was Fianna Fail's head bookkeeper when Bertie Bung was merrily signing blank cheques for CJH, but who saw nothing untoward?

    The same Sean Fleming who had a menopausal hissy fit on the PAC when the HSE told him to "sit down sonny" a few weeks ago?

    A preening, self-important Fianna Fail nonentity with small man syndrome and the intellectual depth of a cabbage.

    Sorry Vinnie, but it's looking very much like The Frontline tonight for this viewer.

    Reilly may survive Vinnie's ire but whether he will survive Labour's moves is another question. There is a a surprising avoidance of RTE's Frontline/Labour fiasco though. Vinnie seems to have become a quasi-Labourite of late.

    The problem is that Reilly might fire Enda Kenny. Vinnie does need a strong Taoiseach though. It is hard for him to be outraged against a non-entity like Enda Kenny.

    Hmm interesting, Liam Twomey is on for FG. He will be the next Minister for Health after Reilly - and he knows it.
