Fair Dues

Mr Kenny has had to put up with a fair amount of criticism regarding his leadership style, including repeated assertions that many thought he was not up to the job of Taoiseach.

He has stuck to his game plan which it now seems was to walk softly and carry a very big stick.

During a crisis he did the difficult but statesman-like thing of supporting a Government that had created the situation. Throughout the ensuing chaos he has been consistently critical of the Govt. without rocking the fragile boat.

Finally, when the moment for action came he has stepped into the breach with a clear and coherent plan and done so with exquisite timing so as to cause the maximum confusion to his opponents by striking at their weakest point, the tension between the coalition partners.

All doubts about judgement and leadership skills can now be put to one side.

Fair dues, Enda.
