Health Minister Leo Varadkar and irish Times writer Miriam Lord at the Fine Gael ‘Think-in’ in the Fota Island Resort, Co Cork today

He’s a big boy.

“Mr Varadkar had said people would be €5 or €10 better off weekly after the Budget, prompting a rebuke from Mr Kenny that details of a Budget are not discussed before the Cabinet make their decisions collectively.
Speaking today, Mr Varadkar said: “I don’t mind being slapped down or scolded.I’m a big boy and I’m willing to take a degree of criticism from time to time, but at the same time, you know this isn’t about me; it’s not about my dignity, it’s not about my ego. It’s about frontline staff and it’s about patients, it’s about our health services which affect all of us and I think everyone in Government needs to get behind our health service.”

        “These stiches aren’t about me, about my ego, about my dignity” that child would say. Making people think it had also banged its head.

    Ha! Ball right back in Kenny’s court.
    He looks like he’s reading his responses off his palm.

    ‘…..he’s a big boy’…..but the minute I make the slightest reference to wide girls I get deleted….you did this all through the Mary Harney era – talking about wide boys.

    Crikey, Miriam Lord has let herself go.
    At least Health Minister Leo knows who ate all the pies.
    Wahaay !

    So wait, is this guy more or less of a gobshite than Kenny? When can I start voting for my beloved Fianna Fáil again, guilt-free?
