    Default Kathleen Lynch Not fit for purpose.

    How can a Minister for Disability stand over a decision to withdraw the mobility allowance without being in a position to immediately introduce a new scheme? It really beggars belief.
    Since her appointment Lynch has been a 'prisoner' of her department and constantly taken the Departments side in various spats with the disability sector. She has not taken an independent stance on any issue , lapping up the faint praise that is thrown her way on public occasions.
    She is so bad that she in retrospect makes Mary Wallace look good.

    Its inhumane if you ask me, these people are amongst the most vulnerable in our society and should get to keep this basic allowance.

    Now now, who's the boss, top dog like? Endas the man. That's where the buck stops.
    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

    If she is not fit for purpose, you are entitled to a:

    Refund - Too late for that, her pension is ringfenced for life.
    Replacement - Promote someone from the backbenches?
    Return - Not vote her back in next time out.

    The Return option is the easiest.

    Labour went into government knowing full well the extent of the public finances.In government they have done nothing except implement right wing FG fiscal policy.Lynch is no different than her other Labour colleagues,they have all disappointed.They await the voters judgement of their despicable behaviour at the next election.The opinion polls predict meltdown.Hopefully she and the rest of Labour will suffer the same fate as the Greens.

    Bottler is so bad she can hide her shortcomings behind his more than ample shadow, this is a poor FG attempt at seeking to deflect the gunfire.
