Varadkar spouts the usual waffle in response to patient’s suffering and death


By Anthony Sheridan

Minister for Health Leo Varadkar was dealing with the latest scandal in the HSE which included the usual suffering and death of patients.

He said he sympathised with the latest victims of the HSE particularly with the family of the deceased.

He said there would be full disclosure.

He said he was concerned about how long the review was taking.

He said he was determined to improve quality assurance (whatever that is).

He said lessons must be learnt.

He said mistakes must not be repeated.

He said he knew all about the scandal since early 2015.

A journalist asked him how the investigation into the horror inflicted on Grace was going.

Grace…Who’s Grace?

Ah no, he wasn’t asked that question. But still, we know there’s truth in it.
