    Default Kenny Calls for a General Election

    Kenny calls for general election - The Irish Times - Tue, Nov 02, 2010


    Mr Kenny told the Dáil this afternoon that Dr McDaid had been an advocate of an election for some time.

    “We now have an unprecedented, and quite bizarre, quite GUBU situation indeed whereby the number of vacant seats now exceeds the working majority of the Government,” he added.

    It will be interesting to see whether 525k Gilmore seconds this call given his recent troubles

    Kenny might have a whiff of blood in his nose - Right now is the best time for FG -

    Pity he's a plank - i genuinely think he's quite an operator... just not a main man.

    Only somebody with Enda´s unique mathematical skills could discern that obscure link between the number of vacancies and the government majority. Next thing he´ll be telling us he´ll balance the budget without additional taxes or cuts ...... actually, come to think of it, didn´t he say something to that effect not too long ago?

    If anyone is capable of losing the next election its Kenny. He's the one saving grace FF have.

    Does Enda Kenny calling for an election even merit a thread? He must have done this every day for the past year already. Save your energy for the post "Kenny Calls For Election and Cowen Calls Election", now that would be worth reading

    it's interesting how two people in this thread with Irish Independent avatars are anti-Fine Gael. Is Sir Anthony not happen with Enda and Fine Gael for the all hurt they've done in opposition these last 13 years

    Especially without any effort at an OP whatsoever. He's the leader of the main opposition party, he's ALWAYS going to be calling for an election. Ask Ed Miliband what he wants and he'll say an election. I'm off to the Environment forum to start a thread "Water is wet".
