    Default Shortall attacks Reilly

    The Irish Times today is covering ex Minister Roisin Shortalls attack on Minister James Reilly. She believes he will “completely dismantle our public health service and send it into freefall”. She claims the Ministers decision to take full control over the health services (dismantling the HSE) with responsibility for the health service’s €13 billion annual budget going to the Department of Health, would result in the Minister having “complete control over the health service”, with no checks and balances for good procedures and governance. Yep.

    She points out that in sacking the board of the HSE the Minister had never explained why he had done so when it was made up of “very public and well-known people who were of good standing”. This was a populist move but not a very bright one.

    She also claims that when the Minister received his Cabinet colleagues’ approval for this power he withheld from them the fact that the incumbent HSE chief executive, Cathal Magee, had already tendered his resignation.

    I'd urge P.ie to read this piece, without going straight into the Roisin Shortall attack mode. The decisions this Minister is making now and has made in the last two years will have a serious impact on the health service in coming years. A service you or your loved ones may need one day. A service that has improved significantly in recent years.

    So was Mary Harney not that bad of a minister after all? Would be an interesting question to put to Deputy Shorthall.

    Control over a €13 billion annual budget. Now why would any politician want to control that?

    Pork barrel is the appropriation of government spending for localized projects secured solely or primarily to bring money to a representative's district.

    Wake up to the risks here.

    Only three days without a new Reilly thread? He must be doing something wrong.
