Our beloved Taoiseach May 3, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
Mary Regan in the course of an excellent article in the SBP this weekend about the water fiasco – of which perhaps more later – makes a point that is well worth noting. Writing about one of the authors of that particular omnishambles – as she terms it, she asks…
… throughout all of this, where was Enda Kenny? As the complex series of political conversations, compromises and deal-making reached a climax last week, the man whose continuation in power it was centred around appeared to have retreated. In the highly charged atmosphere of last Wednesday’s Dáil, he seemed curiously withdrawn.
Indeed she further notes:
His last public appearance was on Friday April 1 =- when he appeared on the steps of Government Buildings to announce his intention to form a ‘partnership government’. The only time he was asked a question by an journalist in the month that has passed since then was when Newstalk’s Sean Defoe seized a chance to throw one at his on his arrival at work early in morning of April 20. ‘how are talks on government formation progressing,’ he asked, to which Kenny replied, ‘I would like to wish Joe Healy the best as President of the IFA’ before walking off.
How is it that this hasn’t been made more of by the media?
