    Default Alan Dukes to head new FG policy commission

    Some good news just out from Fine Gael HQ. Enda has asked Alan Dukes to head up a new FG policy commission focussed on 'Transforming Irish Public Services' starting with a focus on universal health care.

    I think this is great news for the party. We need to develop genuine new thinking around how government and the agencies of the state serve us, and I think Alan is the ideal choice: he has the credibility, reputation and intellect to drive this on, and also a broader respect beyond FG.

    There's more on the party website.

    Here are the commission's members:
    Dr John Barton Hospital Physician for 16 years. Has worked 28 years in the Irish Hospital Service and 2 years in the Canadian hospital service.

    Mr Jarleth Burke Partner with international law firm, Jones Day, specialising in competition law and economic regulation in communications, health, aviation and IT.

    Ms Angela Edghill Former senior policy analyst with Fine Gael, now working with the Irish Hospice Foundation.

    Dr Sean Faughnan Former investment banker. Worked with CSFB, JP Morgan and Goldman Sachs. PhD in International Relations from Cambridge.

    Ms Mari Hurley Finance Director and Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants. Graduate of UCC and completed the Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School in 2006.

    Mr Martin Hynes Health Care Management Consultant. Former CEO of Irish Blood Transfusion Service. Former Programme Manager for both Hospitals' and Community Care services with South Eastern Health Board.

    Dr William Lynch A General Practitioner in west Dublin.

    Mr Michael McLoughlin Chief Executive, Amárach Research Group.

    Dr Ruth McAreavey Lecturer in Environmental Planning in Queens University. Her research interests and areas of publication include rural development and regeneration, voluntary sector funding and community involvement and participation.

    Dr Fergus O'Ferrall Director of the Adelaide Hospital Society. He holds a Lectureship in the Dept of Pubic Health & Primary Care in Trinity College in health services management

    Sounds good. Dreading the inevitable reaction of rural FG TDs, and their support from spin-doctors, when this report says we can't have a Mayo Clinic on every boreen in Leitrim

    Does Enda have an Ecomomics advisor. Also WTF have Enda, Richard Bruton and Leo been over the past number of weeks while the world economy has been in a state of chaos?

    The plan before Christmas was to broaden it out to the members so I suppose we'll wait and see. I'm going to give Alan a shout anyway to see if I can contribute - part of the benefit of living in the same town!

    Keeping the head down and letting FF take the brunt of it - ie doing what any opposition would do ,especially with an Election 4 years away and the subject being the one that is least in powers of control and influence of any national government these days (the World economy).

    To be fair I've seen a fair bit from Bruton on the economy over the last few weeks and Conveney had a good piece on the economy in the Sindo about two weeks ago.

    I dont think that the public blame Fianna Fail for market instability. If Fine Gael were to add to the negativity I dont think it would do them any good.
