Minister of State John Perry tops the list once Again


download (2)

The highest mileage, travel and subsistence costs revealed once again go to Minister of State at the Department of Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation John “The Promise” Perry. He is from Sligo and claimed mileage expenses for 179,218km.

Mr Perry’s total travel and subsistence costs between March 2011 and last July 14th came to €71,887.

Hopefully he will use these expenses to pay some of the debts he owes .

James Reilly Lies as he Distorts Reality


MINISTER FOR Health James Reilly has given a new rationalization for his decision to add two locations in his Dublin North constituency to a list of primary care centers.

Last night Dr Reilly said both Swords, and Balbriggan were recognized as high-priority areas by the HSE five years ago. However, both “lost out” after Minister of State Shortall increased the weighting and they were swept from high priority to low priority. Under the original priority system, Reilly stated they both would have been in the top 35. Conversely, under the new system with an altered weighting system, they ended down the list.”

However, we now know this is a blatant lie as Balbriggan was ranked in forty fourth position and Swords in one hundred and twenty seventh place before Ms. Shortall ordered officials to change the weighting related to deprivation.

One wonders how much longer the Taoiseach Enda Kenny can continue to support Reilly.

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.

Is Perry the worst Minister of State Ever?


John Perry TD for Sligo-North Leitrim and Minister of State for Small Business must be the worst appointment ever to a junior minister’s job.

Generally, this man only opens his mouth to change the foot he has wedged in there. When the two feet are not at home, he comes out with gems that do not inspire confidence… “There must be assistance for small businesses that are creating unemployment throughout the country”(Dáil speech).

Rest assured this man will do nothing concrete to stimulate the retail sector where approx 40,000 jobs have been lost in the past five years. Regretfully due to Government policies, many more localized jobs are uncertain due to the inactivity of this no-getter. Even so, then again, what can you expect from a man who cannot even get around to fixing the local potholes?

John the Promise in another open-mouthed gesture guaranteed the restoration of Breast cancer services to Sligo General hospital within 100 days of Government. During a live interview with Ocean FM concerning the return of cancer services to the North West of Ireland. Perry hung up the phone when questioned on his failure to deliver on his promise. He claimed that the presenter had an agenda against him. What a cringing cop out, what paucity of thought. Perhaps a taste of things to come – A true-blue arrogant fascist to the end.

I have just done this man a slight disservice for I understand he is a high flier when it comes to claiming the few bob.

For expenses in his first twelve months, this man topped the bill with a claim of €33,306. Among his colleagues, he is known as the King of uncertified reimbursement.

In conclusion, what can one say about Perry? Maybe he is a bit like the invisible man. Could you pick him out from a line-up of expense villains? That folk is the story of Perry the obscure, invisible before the election and unseen after it just waiting for his Bisto pension.
