    Default Enda Kenny announces Fine Gael Deputy Spokesmen

    The Fine Gael party leader has this evening announced the Fine Gael Deputy Spokesmen. Included amongst them is the appointment of Brian Hayes as Deputy Spokesman with responsibility for Public Expenditure and Lucinda Creighton as Deputy Spokesman for Immigration. Olivia Mitchell has been appointed Deputy Spokesman for Competition and Consumer Affairs.

    The calibre of today’s appointments underlines the depth and strength of talent in the Fine Gael team and I am confident that we will win the support of the Irish people when they get the opportunity to vote for a new government.
    - Enda Kenny, Fine Gael Leader

    Thats the whole ************************************g party. LOL

    Well, that's them all on-side obviously. Evident lot of nonsense in the papers over the weekend about another heave.

To such ones the modern world is nothing but betrayal and ruin.........We feel bound to disagree with these prophets of doom who are forever forecasting calamity -- as though the world's end were imminent."

    Let this be a lesson to all. If you spend years running down Enda Kenny, insulting his ability and calling for his removal, eventually he'll reward you with promotion. What a strong leader he is.

    That's what I was thinking. Seems everybody in FG has a spokesperson gig now.
    Every one sees what you appear to be, few really know what you are, and those few dare not oppose themselves to the opinion of the many, who have the majesty of the state to defend them.

    Last throw of the dice for Kenny. He must have been in a panic and promoted the whole lot

    Lucinda Creighton as Deputy Spokesman for Immigration
    At last some recognition of her talent. Who is the chief spokesperson and how will she set about undermining him?

    A good line-up in my view.

    I especially welcome Brian Hayes and Damien English to their junior finance roles. It's good to see that even after the heave, Kenny is keeping the young blood active in the important issues.
