Sorry folks, but I haven’t the foggiest what’s on tonight as I haven’t been given any info from tv3 on tonight’s #vinb, despite rquests, so I’ll have to fill in the details on the grid as we go along and I hear the broadcast. So it’s just one big surprise to me as well as you!

Topic: Troika warning health spending has to be rowed back.

I wish they'd put me on the panel Norman. I'd show them in graphic detail what the HSE spends its money on and I'd be the proof to show it's not the bloody patients. We all know where the money goes. To the hierarchy in the HSE, as always. To the pen-pushers and not the pill pushers. To the pharmacutical companies and not the drug users. To the equipment suppliers and not the users of such equipment. To the owners of the land on which the hospitals are built, but not the bricks and mortar to make the hospital viable.

Oh yep, I'd love to get on that panel, and maybe someone would give me immunity from prosecution, seeing as how they didn't give me immunity to feck all else, including MRSA, and lousy carpenters in their Orthopaedic Departments.

Quinn got a frosty reception from the teachers today,imagine the reception O'Reilly would receive if he got an invite to address a group of frontline health workers.

Cringe making it is the way we are so desperate to link everyone and anyone to Ireland...

Pathetic really...

Thank God the people of central/sub Saharan Africa aren't as insecure and needy as we are... cos if they were they'd be doing everyone's head in with links back to there...

Maintaining corrupt soft contracts with big pharma isn't demand led,

Well, it's demanded by the vested interests I suppose,

He looks forward to staying in budget. Fighting words from James. Interesting to see what Sara Burke says.
