    Enda Kenny in Europe...

    Here he is lecturing the Greeks to follow his version of what he didn't do


    Day 1 optimism: how did that work out?
    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/wor...egotiated.html

    Not an EU meeting, but some might find it poor form
    https://youtu.be/IZnfbGrAvF8

    And not forgetting his comments to European Peoples Party
    "The Governor of the Central Bank in Ireland said to me: 'it looks like this weekend...you'll have to put army around the banks and
    around the ATM machines and introduce capital controls like they had in Cyprus'."
    The line at the bottom of that video link is absolute horsesh*t. Also, USC was created by Cowen's FF government, not Kenny's FG government. Come back with a proper argument and people might debate it with you.

    Examples of this? More fact-free crap.

    You've missed the point.
    Look at the video.
    Then think about Enda Kenny's new found status as a European statesman.
    He is lecturing to an eu partner about Irelands path to recovery.
    He lists things Ireland didn't do.
    We did.
    You even contradict him by accepting that Ireland increased income tax.

    Kenny is well liked in the EU. He is seen as a safe pair of hands. Stodgy, stolid, conservative etc but won't rock the boat. Right now with Brexit, Trump and much uncertainty that is seen as a virtue and probably is.

    Then you need a new Government. A new leader of FG isn't going to do that.

    It's equally an argument for the opposite. Now is a time for leadership, the lack of which has brought us to this uncertainty.
