Once again, Leo Varadkar calls it as he sees it. The Minister for Health, defending the increased allocation to health in Budget 2015, said "one of the biggest differences I'm experiencing between tourism and sport, and health, is that the interest groups in tourism and sport want you to succeed - you'd kind of wonder sometimes if that's the case in health".

This reference, made on Breakfast Newstalk yesterday, was largely directed at his own profession - medical doctors. Probably not a wise move, but it must be what Leo thinks. And he might not be wrong.
