Office holder?[edit]

Why was the info box changed from politician to office holder? What office does he hold? I assume that offices only includes offices of state. I'm not aware of him holding any such office. Jobs within parties hardly count, do they? Laurel Lodged (talk) 20:15, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Infobox Politician redirects to Infobox officeholder, infact nearly all public office infoboxes redirect to officeholder now. All of people have been doing a good job over there on standardise occupational infoboxes. James Reilly is a TD for Dublin North. If you assume that offices only includes offices of state, then you are wrong. Its for all public offices. There are one or two million examples on here, so I'm surprised you haven't seen one before. Here is an example: Tony Blair, note the infobox contains his premiership, ministerial offices and MP office. Snappy (talk) 22:09, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

The Debt[edit]

The articles cited note that the debt of €1.9m is owed by Dr. Reilly and four co-investors. The entry in Stubbs Gazette notes similarly. My edit was correct. The debt of €1.9m is owed by Dr. Reilly. It is also owed by his four co-investors. Dr. Reilly's % shareholding is immaterial.

I think editing Bondage suits is more your style. Welcome back! Snappy (talk) 21:20, 13 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks. Yes, it has been a while. I'm surprised to see you make a connection between Dr. Reilly and gimp suits but if you can cite credible sources... Anyway, I am right about what those articles state about the extent of his liabilities.Spirit of 1916 (talk) 12:43, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
You are partially correct. I have clarified the article. Snappy (talk) 18:30, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
No, fully correct but your edit does add usefully.Spirit of 1916 (talk) 18:41, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
No, partially correct because you failed to clarify the 9% issue. Snappy (talk) 19:10, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
I don't wish to argue, but I am fully correct. You reverted my original edit which corrected a significant misconception about his liability; his shareholding is a completely different issue. Presumably you didn't take the time to read what the sources actually said before reverting. To say that my edit was only partially correct would be similar to stating that your edit is only partially correct in that it fails to deal with Dr. Reilly's statement of 11th July where he explains how the debt and subsequent litigation arose. Interestingly, he made a point of mentioning in his statement that although his interest in the co-ownership is just over 9%, he holds 25% of the recourse co-owners' interest.Spirit of 1916 (talk) 18:22, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Yet you failed to mention all this in your edits, which means you were not fully correct. Snappy (talk) 18:27, 18 July 2012 (UTC)
Well in that case, neither were you.Spirit of 1916 (talk) 18:29, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

Please expand the article[edit]

What schools did he attend? Anything on the "You don't like the pay, go flip burgers" Doesn't this man also own a couple of pharmacies? Nothing about potential conflicts of interest regarding his ownership of pharmacies, his share in privatized caring homes etc — Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.46.240.204 (talk) 12:55, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

NPOV[edit]

  • Nothing at all about situating two primary care facilities in his constituency, against expert advice? This is what prompted Shortall's resignation, yet to read this you'd think she left because Reilly wasn't supporting her!
  • "However, despite budget cuts, the health service has shown remarkable improvements during his time!" - eh... no!
  • "There has also been a sharp decline in long waiting lists." - achieved by massive spin of the figures!

This article currently reads like an election leaflet! BastunĖġáḍβáś₮ŭŃ! 22:12, 11 February 2016 (UTC)
