If you present at CUH with a neurological issue on Friday you won't be seen til Monday - it's supposed to be a 24hr hospital
Wonder what the real specialist available hours in our hospitals are they should be published

A lot of sorry for the hospital crisis but they should start firing those responsible every day until it ends, as soon as hse managers and hospital managers started feeling The effects they'd very quickly find solutions until then they are out of touch .

Those responsible are the politicians, and we elected them.

We can vote out our politicians but our politicians seem unable to hold the hse accountable - who has been fired and it's a disaster and our hospital consultants don't even work the hours they're paid ..no accountability.

We should have mid-terms like the US, no canvassing or adverts allowed and just a vote on their performance.

So, you propose a more American model of governance where Democracy isn't really that important.. Form an electoral college where the wealthy elite get to pick who rules regardless of how the popular vote turns out..?

No, just an opportunity to let them know how they're doing and how we feel about it.

Then nothing like the US...
Because:
- Mid-term elections are not about "their performance" (whose performance?): they are elections held between 2 presidential elections, to elect some politicians.
- Suggesting elections without campaigning means an election without information: I can guarantee you that mid-term elections are fully campaigned, canvassing and adverts included.

Mid-term elections are nothing like the " recall election " system.

We have "mid-term" elections in Ireland already:
- Bye-elections, as needed, at all levels (not only Dáil and Seanad)
- Local elections, every 5 years, which are not always synched with General Elections
- European elections, every 5 years
- Presidential elections, every 7 years
All are chance to let the gvt parties know what we think of how they run the country...

In other words, any election other than the General Elections...
(We cannot consider mid-term as "between Presidential Elections", as the president is not governing...)

What other "mid-term" would you want?
(Are you one of the people who think that all politicians are "they"? Whose performance?)
What you described is basically a very expensive and pointless poll, that would probably be less accurate than polls made by polling institutes. Their would be no stakes, so why would people bother turning up?
Or are you suggesting to revert to the good old personal plebiscite?

What I am suggesting is, which won't happen anyway and is only my opinion. A mid-term, that either fires the TD or keeps them there and person who didn't get elected? But just short of the quota, to get their job and given a chance to prove themselves.

So you are suggesting an automatic recall at mid-term, which has nothing to do with the US "mid-term" elections.
If anything, that would require as much canvassing and postering and ads as a General elections: in fact you suggest General Elections every 2.5 year...
Because you cannot recount the previous election to put people "short of the quota" in charge!
You would have to redistribute the second preferences of the "fired" candidate, which is impossible.
And you would look at votes and transfers from 2.5 years before ... if people are not happy with FG gal today who is to say they want the seat to go the FG guy who was short of the quota 2.5 years ago?

the hospitals are still shite
there aren't enough consultants
even building hospitals is a scam
everybody (who can) gets private insurance and thinks im all right but its the same consultants double jobbing in both systems, the rooms might be prettier, it will be the same hands doing the job ...
the public hospitals are falling apart as the only body that gets bigger and stronger is the hse, which was supposed to be abolished .
how long will it be until the private system gets as bad as the public one?

Until we stop losing our youngest and brightest to the greener grass abroad, nothing will change.

The expertise in many fields is abroad so no harm at all in going abroad ! What's important is that they return and the system welcomes them .
The point I keep making about the troika in Ireland is they had to leave before they got a chance to tackle the medical system ( and the legal and insurance )Fine Gael asked them to leave when they questioned how the number of consultants in Ireland is limited and how they effectively run a closed shop.
A young doctor wanting to specialise therefore has to do years and years and then can't become a consultant st the end because of these artificial limits.

Of course our young Drs and nurses should go abroad if they wish to gain experience, it's valuable to their careers and it should be valuable to us.
