I think it’s a good time for the interview. He had an opportunity to give his reasons for declining to cooperate with HSE investigation and reasons for asking for a public investigation, and rightly so. How is he supposed to trust the same people that made the decision not to help his wife and let her to die, or their best pals from the same hospital, for that matter? They will always protect each other’s backs, and that’s why an independent and public inquiry is needed.

I don’t see any reason why someone should be allowed to work in a hospital and make cold blooded decisions about someone else’s life and still be protected after that someone dies. I don’t see why consultants that we pay hefty salaries to should be spared the inconvenience of appearing in a public inquiry. If they have nothing to hide, and if they have nothing to be ashamed of, and if they did nothing wrong, what are they afraid of?
