Well, I'm shocked, shocked and stunned.
You see, Irish Health, that bastion of all things healthy and decent in Ireland, asked site visitors how they rated the performance of Dr Reilly, who has now been Minister for Health for two-and-a-half years.
I have said here for some time now that when Stubbs Reilly sniffs a problem or a brewing scandal anywhere in his portfolio, he quickly averts public attention by announcing a new round of persecution for we smokers. But he won't fool anyone with this damning verdict on his tenure to date.
In offering very luke warm plaudits for, as Irish Health puts it, "Some success on the public health front in trying to push through tough anti-smoking, anti-alcohol abuse and anti-obesity measures, and he did help to to steer through the abortion legislation", the actual result of the poll would have any normal human being scrabbling for a resignation letter.
Effectively, this is his peer review of his time in office from the medical and health communities, and 83 per cent of them "Rated the Minister's performance as poor". This is not a poll done by Forest Eireann. This is on a highly respected and hugely popular website, subscribed to by anyone who's anyone in the caring professions.
And if you think that's bad, only 3% rated his performance as 'good.' Three out of every one hundred persons he presides over can only drag themselves to a soft defense of the bearded one. That has just got to be the ASH faithful.
But his litany of disgraceful failures and botch-ups is catalogued in black and white at Irish Health, for your further enjoyment.
It does pose the question though when this bully inevitably steps aside, as he most surely must, who is there among the shrinking violets in Leinster House who would be capable of facing the real health issues without condensing every issue there down to smoking?
