Gene Kerrigan: Coalition's only skill is putting the boot in

Subservience is clearly at the heart of this Government's master plan -- and little else, writes Gene Kerrigan

Roisin Shortall, Junior Health Minister, is an awful eejit. Enda Kenny, too. That's not my opinion. That appears to be the opinion of James Reilly, Minister for Cutting Aid to the Disabled.

And Reilly isn't the only one who thinks Shortall and Kenny are a few preferences short of a quota. Ruairi Quinn, Minister for Shrinking Educational Resources, seems to share this low opinion of his two colleagues.

It's hard to come to any other conclusion after last week's health-cuts shambles.
