well if she's a heavy-hitter, I'm from the moon.
James O'Reilly has just torn her assunder. She looked and sounded rattled.
An inexperienced FG TD is running rings around both Harney and Hanafin.

were we watching the same programme? i'm neutral on this one, and i am certainly no fan of hanafin, but i thought he came across as a bully. he seems to be a very ignorant man. if i was him i'd watch out, he is the kind of politician that others can't wait to see fall!

I'm not his biggest fan but he walked all over Mary.
It was a bit rich for her to pull the "what would you know you're only in the job a wet week" defense.

More Cowan than Cowan.

It's refreshing to hear someone speak passionately and knowledgably about health.

Hanafin is all fluff, a lightweight.

WHAT?! Just because he's a doctor doesn't mean there is any content to what he says. I rarely hear more than rather ignorant soundbites from the man. Cowan beats him 10 times over on substance.

Perhaps the FF mind control field only works on FF people. Hanafin was totally outclassed by Reilly. She came across as coldhearted whereas Reilly seemed impassioned. FF is really screwing up in controlling the news cycle. Hanafin was a female Enda Kenny.

This total nonsense. Reillys better than Hanifan, Hanifans better than Reilly. Its political b1tchery. I'm not saying you were to be fair, but i mean really...does any really expect a party member on here to say anything independent of that party?

Reilly is on a roll at the moment because the entire debate is being conducted in soundbytes.

It doesn't matter who FF up against him. He knows that people aren't interested in the detail and he can waffle on about confidence, political accountabilty etc for as long as anybody is willing to listen.

Once the vote is over and done with, and we get back to the Cancer Strategy and FG's position re. hospitals like Castlebar and Sligo, and indeed FG's alternative to the Health Strategy, Reilly will be shown up for what he really is.

Perhaps so, except that there IS content to what he says.

Reilly has had more of substance to say on Health in three months than Cowan had to say in three YEARS in that department.

And Reilly absolutely filleted Hanafin tonight.

Oh I agree but tell that to Deep Throat. He started this thread and has started many more like them.

If you bothered to really cohere his argument, most noticeably in the Dail today, you will actually notice (a rational person would at least) that his arguments were based on actual correspondence and indeed used a huge amount of his speech quoting individuals and the Minister.

You clearly failed to listen. Agreeing with the strategy in principle does not mean that you have to give one single Minister the unhindered ability to basically botch the whole thing up in order to be 'for' the cancer strategy as it is. It reminds me a bit of the debate in the US. If you're against war you are automatically against America and the troops as opposed to being against the flawed and incompetent execution of the war. Its the same general theory.

Of course you know all that.

It's always easier to point out problems then find solutions.
