i don't disagree with the fact that he is worse than Ms Harney, but health is a poison chalice. Even in boom times, it was a difficult brief.
But for clarity these projects are been accelerated, so the HSE knew these projects, but were unaware of their accelerated nature.
Again, I am not defending him, but hate the hypocracy of people who want their politicians to make differences, who want more money spend on health and who want capital projects to proceed in these austere times (side note - i agree with austerity, but it was hard to justify not spending in full last year's capital budget, but that is a little off topic).
