I agree there is a lot wrong but why go after this man?
His Government, for which he has collective responsibility, has been in power for eight years.

There's an often-times middle class fixation with étiquette, a kind of suburban outrage that people might gather outside a politicians home to peacefully protest, yet nobody seems to see the problem with people actively dying because of that person's policies ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Tinfoil hat on : Send around 20 odd protesters - look for sympathy . Gets the eye and a bit of heat off you regarding the children's hospital scandal and the nurse and midwife strike. Just saying .

He hasn't been there for eight years though. Reilly was responsible for a lot of cuts, bad cuts that cost lives.

Why not outside Varadkar's house then?
I think picking the house of a man with a baby less than two months old is really bad form.

No, it's Healthcare Economics 101. We all know that economic decisions made in the provision of healthcare governance will affect health outcomes and mortality rates, the issue here is that decisions are being traded in favour of middle-class votes, ie tax reductions vs appropriate healthcare.

Health service and those in it is the problem, has been for more than eight years.
After the Mc Cabe episode none is going to highlight the problems or maybe everyone is on the gravytrain

Is this the same poor babby he posted a picture of moments after it was born on his twitter account where he also promotes himself and announces government policy?

Video footage is easily accessible with a few clicks on Facebook.
