Candidate doesn't do irony as he plays blame game
Alex White doesn't do apologies or resignations. The Minister for Medical Cards is launching a bid to become Tanaiste and leader of the Labour Party after dicing with ministerial death twice this week.
In an act of betrayal, Mr White was involved with the coup against Tanaiste Eamon Gilmore.
The minister confirmed yesterday he had intended to tell Mr Gilmore of his intention to "support the motion of no confidence".
