The unspeakable

• Oscar Wilde once described a fox hunt, the favourite past-time of our former colonial masters as "the unspeakable in pursuit of the un-eatable."

I wonder what truism he might apply to yesterday's Pat Kenny Show where our man Pat (one of the highest paid employees at RTE) and Health Minister James Reilly, (one of the wealthiest politicians in the State) discussed the ridiculously high salaries that are paid to Irish consultants?

Both the kettle and the black Pot must surely be blushing crimson, whilst the overpaid consultants are undoubtedly green with envy.
