Kevin Doyle: Slaintecare is just political wizardry to get politicians on all sides off the hook
The latest plan to fix the health system is the result of a convenient consensus by both Government and Opposition, writes Kevin Doyle
Margaret Thatcher questioned the value of consensus in the battle for any "great cause". She believed it was the process of abandoning all beliefs and policies in search of something no one believes in but to which no one objects.
It would be interesting to know what she would make of ''new politics'' and more particularly, its offspring, Slaintecare.
According to the glossy announcements last week, the plan to transform our forever ailing health and care services is "built on consensus".
