    Default Enda Kenny - an unlikely Taoiseach

    In Dunnes this morning paying for my shopping my eyes couldn't help focusing in on a large picture of Enda Kenny's head , yes on the bookshelf I couldn't believe it - "Enda Kenny - The unlikely Taoiseach" a biography of the man himself out just in time for Christmas . what a special gift that would make to someone you like this Christmas .

    anyway while the title is so appropriate "the unlikely Taoiseach" , can anyone think of a better title for the book.

    I've heard a rumour that he will be played in the film version by Daniel Day Lewis.

    What's in the book? If it was to list achievements it would contain a load of blank pages.

    I heard that Joe Ninety was a shoe-in for the part...

    I'm not sure I see the point in a biog of a Taoiseach who has been in power for less than 2 years and could realistically have 3 or possibly 8 years left in him.

    Joe Ninety got stuff done. If he was Taoiseach instead of the puppet we have things might be improving.

    I think unlikeable is a bit harsh; unfortunate may be more on the mark. Who, of what's on offer, would be any more likeable?

    It'll be a few more Euro for Enda. Handy way to milk the artist tax exemption while it still exists. Straight out of the Bertie play-book.
