There's a serious morale problem now among HSE frontline staff, who cannot trust the equipment that they are being asked to use.
Luckily for Paul Reid, the media in this country are 'green jersey' merchants rather that actual journalists who spend more time criticising Boris and Trump rather than being a bit more critical with their questioning.
He's been promoted way beyond his level of competence and I'd question the rationale for appointing him in the first place.
