    Should a man with such a terrible memory have been a Minister at all?


    The Taoiseach told an almost disbelieving Dáil that Naughten had met him on Wednesday night to account for his contacts with McCourt. Varadkar was initially satisfied with Naughten’s explanations, until his minister later rang him, near midnight, to say he had just remembered that he had attended a private dinner at McCourt’s home last year. He suggested that he could be reshuffled to another department, or the responsibility for the broadband plan could be given to another minister. Varadkar, clearly horrified, said he would reflect on it.


    When the two men met on Thursday morning, Naughten dropped another bombshell. He had attended “at least three other private dinners with Mr McCourt. There were no officials present and there are no minutes.” From then on, Naughten’s ministerial career was over.

    LOL

    Fine Gael TD Maria Bailey took part in a 10km race three weeks after falling from a swing in a Dublin hotel.

    The politician lodged a personal injuries claim on the basis that she suffered injuries to her head, lower back and hip after falling backward off the swing in the well-known Dean Hotel.

    It is claimed Ms Bailey can no longer sit or stand for long periods without experiencing pain and discomfort as a result of the incident on July 10, 2015.

    While on the subject of Fine Gael TDs and litigation:

    hertz contest claim Fine Gael TD suing car hire firm for up to €15,000 over crash that ‘left him in pain for 14 months’

    Alan Farrell - an ally of Taoiseach Leo Varadkar - is suing Hertz Rent A Car after collision with one of their *vehicles in Drumcondra, Dublin
    https://www.thesun.ie/news/1703010/f...for-14-months/

    Incidentally, there was an interesting study done on "whiplash" by Galway University which demonstrated that symptoms generally abated immediately following a successful legal claim. This, of course, is entirely an aside and not a suggestion of any sort regarding Alan Farrell. He probably was in severe pain for 14 months.

    A new study has found 100pc of Irish whiplash patients attending a spine specialist pursued legal action.

    The researchers examined all the whiplash cases attending a specialist spine surgeon in Ireland over a 15-year period.

    The NUI Galway study found the visits to the specialist stopped in almost all cases when the legal action was finalised.

    The authors said: "Of note, despite the reported severity of whiplash symptoms, only a small proportion of patients returned for a further consultation once their litigation settled."

    Anything new here? Dishonesty is a fundamental part of Irish thinking, led by our politicians.

    Move on, why don't we have personal insurance as a legal requirement? because there would be no money in it for our friends in the law library and their friends on the soliciting 'profession' and in the Dail.

    How long ago was the gov report (the Kenny report I think) suggesting personal insurance v public, never implemented.
