Whoever thought James Reilly would evolve into the ghost that could haunt Enda Kenny into early retirement?

There was once a time when Dr Reilly was Enda's perceived trump card. That, however, was a long time ago, for today, poor James is a political rogue card who simply cannot be reinvented.

After that bit of cabinet butchery, where Dr James was hacked out of health and dumped into the elephants' graveyard of the children's ministry, it must surely have been hoped that a fire-blanket would be put over the unfortunate adventures of James and the giant HSE.
