    Default Kenny.... the Multi-tasker who doesn't trust his Ministers.

    It seems, according to the Independent anyway, that Enda Kenny is to take a more hands on role in both the health and welfare departments.

    TAOISEACH Enda Kenny is taking personal charge of pushing through reforms in both Health and Social Protection.

    Mr Kenny is ramping up pressure on the two most divisive ministers in Cabinet, Social Protection Minister Joan Burton and Health Minister James Reilly, by taking a hands-on approach to slow-moving reforms being undertaken in their departments.
    Kenny to take over reform at Welfare and Health - Independent.ie

    Whatever about the rights and wrongs of this managerial technique, what is the Minister for reform doing ? Isn't Howlin supposed to be keeping on top of reform across all departments ?

    Is this a good thing or a bad thing ?

    Will Labour take this vote of no confidence in Burton lying down? Probably.

    Kenny's "chairman" of the board image is in tatters - he's proving to be a very poor leader but on the other side can't be expected to manage more than two portfolios anyway.

    His team is dysfunctional - even the FG members like Reilly and Hogan are making it impossible to be a "leader", not to mention the politically opposite Burton and Howlin sniping from across the Labour divide.
    The more things change....

    Northern Ireland - without forgiveness, there is dysfunctionality.

    He may as well take over Justice from Lazybones as well, while he is at it.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.
