His angry retaliation came as the Minister for Resources, Martin Ferguson, pointedly refused to directly back the Prime Minister . Sources believe several ministers , including Mr Ferguson, Senator Carr, Chris Bowen and most likely Robert McClelland, now back Mr Rudd.

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan has refused to back Fine Gael TD Maria Bailey to run for the party in the next general election.

Ms Bailey has faced growing calls from within Fine Gael not to run for re-election in Dún Laoghaire following the swing-gate controversy.

Mr Flanagan is the first Cabinet minister to comment on Ms Bailey's re-election bid which he repeatedly declined to endorse in an interview with the Irish Independent.

The Laois TD said Ms Bailey, who was sacked as chair of the Oireachtas Housing Committee last month, had paid a "hefty price" for the controversy over her now-withdrawn personal injury claim against a Dublin hotel for falling off a swing in 2015.

'I lost my son to a sudden asthma attack, despite him having mild symptoms'

'I lost my son to a sudden asthma attack, despite him having mild symptoms' Eight-year-old Bailey Davis only ever showed mild symptoms of asthma, but in 2017, without warning, he suffered an acute attack, collapsed and died. His mother Nicki Davis is keen to warn others of the dangers of the condition, however mild, and the importance for all sufferers to receive a yearly review with a GP or nurse. Bailey's asthma was always really mild, it never caused him problems. As a toddler it had brought on two admissions to hospital for serious chest infections, but he'd only ever had two asthma attacks in his eight years and it was the second one that killed him. On the day it happened it was so fast.

"I think the Maria Bailey case was unfortunate. I acknowledge that Maria Bailey has made some serious errors of judgment and I think she has paid for that by way of the sanction," he said.

But Mr Flanagan refused repeatedly to be drawn on whether Ms Bailey should be allowed run again.

"I am not part of an investigative process, I am not a member of the national executive, I was for in excess of 15 years.

"I am a former party chief whip, I am a former party chairman, I am a player on the team, I am not a selector. I don't decide," he said.

It was a matter for the local constituency organisation and Fine Gael's national executive whether Ms Bailey should be allowed to run, he said. But asked for his personal view, Mr Flanagan said: "I don't have a view on other constituencies. I go before my own constituency convention."

Captain Of Migrant Rescue Ship Refuses Paris Medal Over ‘Hypocrisy’.
The German captain of rescue ships that saved hundreds of migrants’ lives in the Mediterranean has turned down Paris’s highest civilian award, accusing the city of hypocrisy over the treatment of migrants. Paris awarded Pia Klemp and her compatriot Carola Rakete the Grand Vermeil Medal in July for their repeated bravery in bringing migrants to shore despite Italian efforts to stop them. “We do not need authorities deciding who is a ‘hero’ and who is ‘illegal’,” Klemp said in a statement on Facebook late on Tuesday. Addressing Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, she wrote: “You want to award me a medal ...
