Old grey Mater

The dogs, the lamp posts and the stuff between them are well aware that the site of the new children's hospital at the Mater is utterly impractical for Joe Public.

The notion that €36m was spent on a project before someone in government had the common sense to seek 'approval in principal' from An Bord Pleanala is not only unbelievable but is a brutal testimony to the gullibility of the Irish people; to our willingness to see things precisely in the way we are encouraged to see them.

Really! Is it not perfectly clear to all of us that the Irish majority will apparently believe anything if we are told it by someone in a suit? Can we not see that it is the millions paid, and yet to be paid, before the State can extract itself from the Harney-Ahern project, that is the real issue here?
