    Default Roisín Shorthall on Clare FM

    She's giving it to Dicey. Says he was "looking after" cabinet colleagues. Has no confidence in Reilly's ability to reform the health service. We need a new kind of politics. She is not going to go quietly. If she keeps this up towards election time she will hurt Labour.

    She's also right

    Yet she conveniently forgets that she signed up to the PfG and knew precisely what she was getting into.

    Claiming Reilly is "corrupt" or whatever is just an easy way out for the woman, out of a problem of her own making.

    While I am not overly fond of Reilly I have not very much sympathy for Shortall either. She knew he was a pain to deal with yet didn't seem to think her job was important enough to be worth learning strategies to address the problems. Now she seems to have been reduced to being the ex-minister "telling it like it is". Pride cometh before a fall indeed.

    The more she talks, the more personal it seems to become, she seems to prefer the role of an opposition TD.

    Far easier for her, doesn't have to make any hard choices.

    Exposed in office as lacking the cojones for the job, I fear.

    Apparently Alex White is very quietly getting on with his role, being diplomatic and getting wins that eluded Shortall's more abrasive, shouty approach.

    Considering, she showed no ability to function as a minister that is her destiny.

    Who cares about Shorthall and her inane mutterings! Just like Colm Keaveney, she's yesterday news!
    FF said hello and welcome to the IMF. FG said goodbye.

    She doesn't have to keep it up.Labour Senator Susan O'Keefe has just been on my local radio station OceanFM speaking her usual goobdly gook defending Labours role in government ie crucifying ordinary people.Labour just won't be hurt at the next GE they'll be decimated if they continue to impose austerity and cutbacks and prop up the Blueshirts.They are their own worst enemies continuing FF's policies of making ordinary people pay the gambling debts of Bankers,Builders,Bondholders and Speculators.
