Big Mouth Heaps the Pressure on Dr. James Reilly.
Transport Minister Leo Varadkar concedes that the decision to locate two primary care centres in the Health Minister‘s constituency “does look like” stroke politics.
However, he said that you had to trust your Cabinet colleagues to make the right decisions.
Dr Varadkar said that he trusted Dr James Reilly in that regard.
It looks like Varadkar is saying I admire your blatant ability to use stroke politics to strengthen your domestic nest. It also looks as if “Big Mouth” is saying it is time to go, Jimmie Boy.
The decision of Reilly in relation to the location of care centres has caused conflict between himself and Labour Minister of State Róisín Shortall. Dr. Reilly was asked to identify the politicians who had lobbied him in relation to the centres but a spokesperson acting on his behalf declined to respond.
Reading between the lines one suspects Leo might be saying that’s him sidelined in my quest for the top spot.
We also learn from this that stroke politics is alive and thriving under the umbrella of health.
