A very woke companion of mine (who does not read the net) wondered to me last night if the titanic bill for this hospital is in fact a giant money laundering operation, with monies being spent on underhand activities and payouts being attributed to and formally sunk into the official bill for the hospital.
Which bank (or banks) did the government borrow from to build this thing?

The real question is - why did Varadkar appoint a mouthy greenhorn, devoid of any relevant experience, to such a critical role?

Was it purely because he knew him to be an easily moulded vehicle for the legalisation of abortion?
B-I-N-G-O.

So, basically @SimonHarrisTD decided not to inform @campaignforleo & @Paschald about a €390m overrun. Yet the Taoiseach informed the whole country in January, the budget was €100m in surplus. It ain't funny. This stuff is incompetence, bad governance. #Ge19 #GetTheFFFGersOut

Replying to @caulmick @SimonHarrisTD and


Who’s benefiting from these overruns, who are behind the contracts? That’s something I’d like to see.

No doubt some very close and cosy connections

Apparently Paschal Donoghue as Minister for Finance had his own official on the Board of Directors of the Hospital yet all political fallout landing on Harris' head. According to a report in The Irish Times,

'Earlier on Tuesday Taoiseach Leo Varadkar rejected claims by Labour leader Brendan Howlin that the Government’s representative on the board of the National Children’s Hospital should have informed Mr Paschal Donohoe of serious concerns about costs. Mr Varadkar said the line of responsibility was from the chairman of the board to the Minister and “not the individual board member acting on their own”.

Mr Donohoe also defended the role of his civil servant saying he met with him to establish his views on how the overruns were dealt with at board level as they emerged during the summer.'

Total abdicated himself of all responsibility for everything.
So a half billion overrun for a country with an enormous public debt that we've been lectured on at quite a length by the same minister at how it constraints public spending.
Bollox!

Looks like the little rat has been cornered. At least he has a home - unlike so many Irish people.

A very bad tactic. The last time a group tried this we ended up with The Public Order Act, giving gardai and others sweeping powers of arrest and prosecution.
