What evidence do you have that Leo has any input into the amount of money awarded to individuals? Do you think he told them to give her a huge amount of money to shut her up and keep the public happy? Don't you think that if he tried to pull something like that it would have leaked and he would be in big trouble?Indeed Leo being very liberal with tax payers money considering many of the audits and decisions were made when he was just moving on from Health on his relentless campaignforleo...probably wasn't too interested in the petty details of healthcare by then
As to the liberal use of taxpayers money this is speculation as nobody knows the full facts of Emma Mhic Mhathúna's case. How does anyone know that her screens weren't especially negligent beyond the normal rates of error? and didn't she have 2 screens misread?
It's hard to draw conclusions about her large award without those kind of details.
Isn't the enquiry into the individual cases going to give some more answers?
You are right about the legal fees though if they are 700k for the state then that is crazy.
