Ambrose on the radio this morning.

Ambrose was on the radio this morning. And quite frankly I think that he has lost the run of himself. When I started this post I made the conscious decision not to make this a rant. And I am trying hard.

He seems to have difficulty trying to differentiate between guidelines and regulations. I think that he would like to have everything thing he says to become gospel. Well Ambrose, life ain’t like that. The clue is in the word, GUIDEline. If it was a regulation then there would be an act of the Dáil followed by a ministerial order all signed proper like.

And what is this hang up that you have with codeine containing cough bottles. You interrupted several times to inject these into the interview. To listen to you a person would think that we were all handing them out willy nilly with a straw in them. Just for your information many pharmacies that I know off do not even keep them in stock any-more. Many others keep them in the pharmacy and only dispense them on foot of a prescription.

Somehow or other it does not surprise me that you are out of touch with the reality in Ireland’s pharmacies.
