With the renewed calls for James Reilly to resign is it time for him to say bye-bye. Dr James Reilly says there is no justification for another motion of no confidence in him and he also said he would not change the way he selected primary care centres, an issue which continues to dog him.
Fianna Fáil says the Minister has still not provided an adequate explanation as to why he bumped a number of locations, including two in his Dublin North constituency - Swords and Balbriggan - were added to the list of 35 at the last minute.
A similar motion against Dr Reilly was defeated in September and former junior health minister Roisin Shortall resigned over the controversy. Under Dáil rules, another motion cannot be tabled until March.
To add to his worries, the family of Savita Halappanavar say the Minister for Health, James Reilly, has until Thursday to agree to a public inquiry into her death or else they will take their case to the European Court of Human Rights.
So, where does Reilly go from here? A good show is lined up for tonight. Reilly may well survive in the Dáil, but can he survive Vinny’s onslaught? :shock: Tune in to tv3 at 23:00 to find out …

Will put up the thread early tomorrow nearer the time of broadcast. Was nice to be asked if I wanted to go to tv3 studio while the Debate was being recorded at 8pm, but I’ll stick with my fan-base here. :roll:
