'Well done Minister, you’re the black market’s biggest friend'
I must admit that I am glad that James Reilly is a Minister for Health – I just wish he was a Minister for Health for another country.

But the joke isn’t so funny when it’s someone who has, bafflingly, managed to bag himself a senior Ministerial role in this country despite proving, constantly, that he is simply not up to the job.
