Erm, Enda the world?

By Mike Cunningham On March 14th, 2011

I note that Enda Kenny has been given the treatment in Brussels. I mean, the works, a press conference; parachuted into a special meeting of European Council Heads of Government to discuss Libya. A trump card for Enda was leaving the meeting early, so he could take ‘a phone call from His Highness Obama the First’.

Pretty good going for a second class politician whom no-one had even heard of until the Irish Republic found it had a set of new paymasters, Governors, namely the IMF and the European Central Bank, as well as being quoted as saying he was going to set things right with Europe, and sort out the Loans and the Interest Rate, and all the rest….ad infinitum!

It is also a great pity that the attention paid to Mr. Kenny did not extend to getting the correct photograph set in place for the Press corps, as the one in place didn’t really do him justice, it being a photo of Victor Garber, who played shipbuilder Thomas Andrews in the film of the Titanic. On second thoughts, maybe there was no mistake, as the Titanic sank after being declared ‘Unsinkable’!

  1. “Enda was leaving the meeting early, so he could take ‘a phone call from His Highness Obama the First’.”

    It was more than likely, to ‘listen’ to advice from Barry O’blimey, on how to ‘quit while you are still behind’?

    Has Barry O’blimey actualy walked on water yet? or just like everything else Barry O’blimey promised, it’s proven to be ‘bit more difficult’ actualy physicaly achieving it, rather than just talking about it?

    ” Yes we can” .. oh, NO you can’t? .. and won’t?
