Harney gets paint bombed - Joe Duffy gets told


Health minister Mary "the hatchet" Harney, was red faced today after a protester splattered her with paint.  Harney  has presided over huge cutbacks in the public Health service and advancing privatisation through co-location (giving public land to private health operators).  Eirigi Councillor Louise Minihan poured the paint over Harney at an event in Dublin.  The incident comes on the same day that the HSE annouced plans to make 5,000 workers redundant.

Update: Louise ended up on that afternoons Joe Duffy show subject to the usual Duffy bracking.  WSM member Shane O'Curry rang in to defend her resulting in Joe losing his cool.  The exchange is embedded in the yourtube below
