    Kelly on Big Phil

    Being frank, I was given the biggest hospital pass in the history of modern politics," he said. "In terms of issues, I have said the man should have done more, I still stand by that, I think he should have done better," Mr Kelly said of Mr Hogan.

    It's a rugby term. When a team mate passes the ball to you in such a manner that catching it is likely to put you in hospital due to the opposition having an open crack at your rib cage or similar.

    Alan's team (whoever they be) want to spread the blame


    His team fear the Coalition is facing a serious homelessness issue this Christmas, but he is threatening to "drag" the Taoiseach into the row rather than take the rap.

    His team believe the policies of the Department of Finance and Tanaiste Joan Burton's Department of Social Protection are increasing homelessness, and "up until now Kelly has given other ministers political cover".

    A crunch meeting will be held this week between Mr Kelly and Finance Minister Michael Noonan in a last-ditch attempt to resolve the escalating crisis.

    AK47 accused of leaking an internal poll

    The internal analysis suggested that Labour will lose 20 seats in the upcoming election.
    It named future leadership candidates Alex White, Seán Sherlock, and Michael McCarthy as those likely to lose their seats.

    It was suggested that Environment Minister Alan Kelly leaked misleading figures on the poll to damage potential leadership rivals - something he denies.

    Joan Burton said that whoever it was, they have not helped anyone in Labour.

    That is just so hilarious. I wonder who got the PR gig for that campaign, and how much paid for "hold these blow-up globes"

    Paul Murphy is chasing this in the Dail.

    MINISTER FOR THE Environment Alan Kelly “has serious questions to answer” over his meeting last December with a company that was subsequently the most successful bidder in a state tender.That’s according to Anti-Austerity Alliance TD Paul Murphy, who last night raised the controversy during a Dáil debate on the establishment of an Anti-Corruption Agency.
    He claimed “very serious irregularities occurred,” and said Kelly may have taken part in a violation of the rules over state procurement.
    At the heart of this is a meeting that took place between Minister Kelly, an official from the Department and Labour TD Brendan Ryan and two members of the company Task Limited, that was to go on to be the most successful bidder.
    This meeting happened just days after the deadline for tenders had ended and while Pobal, an agency under the Minister’s Department, were assessing the tenders.
    The CEO of that company [Gerard Bunting] is suggested to be a supporter of Deputy Ryan.
    In response, Brendan Ryan told TheJournal.ie:
