    The Never-Enda Story

    If there was more proof needed that Enda Kenny is a twit, here it is:

    Kenny hits out over 'gossip' as wait goes on for announcement - Independent.ie

    Kenny has dangled his departure date in front of people for months and now acts surprised that there's rumours and gossip.

    What an idiot. The people of Ireland rejected him and large chunks of his party over a year ago but like a fart in a spacesuit he's hung around as Taoiseach propped up by FF who want to make sure FG is fully beat down before they force another election.

    The members of FG have made it clear they don't want him as leader, but seem happy enough for the Walter Mitty of Irish politics to lead the country.

    Meanwhile - despite taking "every waking moment" to run the country he's effectively running it into the ground - his 5 point plan ultimately came down to one point he never mentioned: extort Scandi tax rates, deliver 3rd world services and give the balance to your cronies.

    Now he's surprised that his "on again, off again" departure planning - rivaled only by that other Colossus of Irish politics Bertie Ahern - is causing gossip!!! FFS - the country is facing the biggest challenge since "the Emergency" and we need a leader to lead, so it's no surprise we're talking about it.

    Never-Enda Kenny, as I predicted 6 years ago, may well go down as the most unpopular Taoiseach ever, despite amazing competition for the title.

    ah, it is trivial stuff though.

    Enda is clearly having a wonderful time trolling Vlad and Coveney. So what? It's one of the few perks of power that are enjoyable.

    Yes, of course, because that's exactly what the country needs from it's supposed "leader" at the moment.

    I'm no fan of Brian Cowen - but at least he went down swinging, not indulging in a bit amateur dramatics.

    I think you're engaging in some serious dramatization here

    When Enda resigns and a new FG leader is elected, what happens then?


    • That new leader becomes Taoiseach
    • We have the same Dail situation
    • We have the same government (maybe a few of the old timers will step aside with Enda)
    • We will have the same set of challenges and opportunities as we do currently
    • We will have the same policy mix


    Whether Enda went two months ago, today or even two months from now makes zero difference. Personally I wish he'd gone already but such is his right - it's not worth stressing over.
