Chief Reporter Jack Horgan-Jones is joined by Health Editor Susan Mitchell to discuss the fall-out from her Sunday Business Post interview with former HSE chief Tony O’Brien last weekend. She talks about the focus on O’Brien’s comments about Health Minister Simon Harris, and the lack of reaction to the substance of his criticisms of health policy.

Political Correspondent Hugh O’Connell and News Correspondent Colette Sexton discuss MEP Brian Hayes’s decision to quit politics and the implications for the European elections next year. They also take a look at what to watch for in the US mid-term election results

Markets Editor Ian Guider also provides an update on Paschal Donohoe’s efforts to thwart EU proposals for a digital tax.
