    Default Enda wants political director to 'babysit' his high-maintenance backbenchers



    Fionnan Sheahan writing in today's Indo reports that Enda Kenny doesn't trust his backbenchers and feels he is falling out of favour with enough of them to get him worried. So he wants to hire someone to listen to their complaints on his behalf, and perhaps salve bruised egos after a reshuffle.

    Kenny wants political director to 'babysit' his high-maintenance TDs - Independent.ie

    Actually, I'm not sure if that is what the article says. I only scanned and checked out the comments on another site. But anyway, Fionnan Sheahan, who has (of course) no interest in destabilising the Fine Gael front bench, is writing something about Kenny, in which an unnamed source uses intemperate language about the dear leader's plans. So brave.

    That article says "The Labour Party has also recently appointed a spin doctor to look after the party's backbenchers."

    I take it the money to pay this poor person comes out of the Labour Party kitty?

    The photoshopping of that photograph is a little bit juvenile, don't you think? Couldn't you find an ACTUAL photo of him?

    No, I'm sure the Labour party are somehow de-frauding the taxpayer and getting the State to pay for it somehow, illegally.

    Lol the size of his head is nearly as big as Gilmore's ego. Another made up job for someone who has successfully lick arsed. Will it be along the lines of a crèche ? If so they'll need a few carers. One per six TDs.

    Sorry for bringing you O.P. off topic, but Fionnan Sheehan has the biggest forehead I've ever seen. Sorry again.

    Back on topic. Is this for real. Babysitters for grown adults. This is crazy stuff.
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.

    No that is an actual picture of Fionnan Sheahan. All the other pictures you see are photoshopped.

    He must be eating horsemeat, as he has a head as long as and like a horse

    Seriously though who pays. Bertie used have all these jobs paid by taxpayer, including a unit listening to what every local station was saying.
