    Default Clearly time for Reilly and Shatter to go.......

    Everyday this govt becomes more like the ff led govt that they promised they would not be......arrogance on a grand scale, cronyism, spin and down right contempt for the people.

    These 2 in particular, clearly cannot even see the wood from the trees, living up on their lofty heights i'm sure it all does look grand up there, even big phil has been smart enough to keep his mouth shut lately but then again that's probably easy enough when you are going on junkets halfway around the world.

    Enda kenny is clearly failing by once again putting party before people.......

    Everybody realises we have to do more with less, but the attitude of this pair in particular made further cuts far less palatable, especially when the cuts always seem aimed at those at the bottom.

    If there was something better to replace them then yes I would agree that they should go. Unfortunately, and this reflects very badly on the rest of FG & LAB, there is nothing better than them within those parties.

    em, and Hogan, and as of yesterday, Coveney too,

    And therefore, as he's the boss, Kenny should also go,

    Not convinced that Shatter has made any serious mis-steps. Reilly must be close to the exit at this stage.

    Not a major fan of Shatter but I would agree that James Reilly should be relieved of his position before anyone else is.

    Of course he hasn't.

    Shatter's one of the real reforming Ministers in the government. Alas much of this country and Fianna Fail still think it's 1922 and want a badly resourced one Garda station in ever village. That's the problem with this country, to bring in any reform you really have to push through an awful amount of crap.

    Of course he also doesn't control how much money he is given, which also of course doesn't grow on trees. Just how he manages it.

    Shatter hasn't favoured Garda stations in his own or other minister's constituencies. Even if you disagree with his policies, you can at least admit him to be a principled man and an effective politician. O'Reilly is the complete opposite.

    That's very true.

    The largest station to be closed is in Shatter's own Constituency. The second largest is in Gilmore's.

    Shatter seems to be just implementing government policy and for that reason I don't think there is a reason for him to go. Obviously Reilly is an omnishambles.

    Arrogant Al and Jim de Fixer 'll never go it is up to the people to consign them to a ring of hell hotter than the one their predecessors are on. At least with FF you are able to say to yourself –well ! ya know where ya stand with a buzzard –these guys turned lying into a new art form ,even for politicians-new politics me hole.
    The truth of an idea is not a stagnant property inherent in it. Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events.
