    Default Deputy McDonald attacks Minister Reilly

    Deputy McDonald claimed in the Dáil today that the Minister for Health had engaged in "sharp, corrupt practices" relating to the primary care centre list. She is claiming that information supplied, following a Freedom of Information request, show that "considerable financial advantage" had been conferred on the owner and the developer involved.

    An Tánaiste Gilmore was not pleased and asked SF how many bodies have been buried on this island because of SF.

    Mary Lou certainly did not mince her words today before the Christmas break begins. Minister Reilly has asked her to repeat allegations of corruption against him outside the House.

    Should she? And was Minister Gilmores response acceptable?

    Gilmore's response is becoming the standard response of the FG bunch but it seems Labour have jumped on board. He's a disgrace to the office of Tainaiste.

    The last time I remember SF being challenged to repeat something outside the Dáil was when Cowen asked Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin to repeat what he said regarding the Druids dinner.... Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin stood at the gates the next day and repeated it in front of the media....

    Didn't work out great for Cowen and probably won't for Reilly.

    Very impressed with Mary Lou of late. Not sure what this Pearse Doherty obsession is about. They need to keep McDonald front and centre.

    As for the issue at hand, get the popcorn out!

    I dont believe it is good enough to use an anti PIRA stance as a defence in any and all economic matters. This is schoolyard politics which to be truthful is standard practice on this Island. If your only reply is to deflect what are you deflecting from.

    She should repeat whatever she said outside the Dail so.

    Talk is cheap.

    WOW This could be a hornet's nest for Reilly. Mary Lou should repeat it outside the Dail if she's that sure of her information. As for Gilmore and the usual whataboutry, he and his buddy's in Labour and indeed FG conviently ignore Gilmore old friends such as Sean Garland and the Offical IRA. Almost laughable, but once a Sticky, always a Sticky.
    Follow the money in this country and it ALWAYS goes back to state support, be it tax breaks, state contracts and the manipulation of markets for the gombeen class.

    You know the government are squirming when they bring out that nonsense.

    The Shinners should ask the Labour Party about the shooting of Larry White.

    She should ask Fine Gael what it is like to be in government with politicians who were involved with a party with an armed paramilitary wing that killed people and robbed banks. Then she should tell the little Stalinist sh!t to bugger off back to North Korea - with season's greetings of course.
