" we are living away beyond our means". and I need more money for my guys.

You could have given a link or even a quote

Enda Kenny personally overruled two Cabinet ministers to secure a €35,000 pay increase for a close friend and former adviser, the Irish Mail on Sunday can reveal.
The Taoiseach, who will tonight tell the nation why we need to accept €4bn in Budget cuts, insisted his one-time spin doctor Ciarán Conlon be given a 37% pay increase by the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation.

Of course the type of Brit who reads the Daily Mail has to add their comment

The UK should no no longer send financial aid to countries like this who have a proven record of mismanagement. Why should we? Leave them to it.

There was me thinking it was a loan with interest
It's a very mild comment compared to many you'll read on that site about Ireland

The Irish Daily Mail and the Sunday version are very different papers to the UK version and their website
I don't know why any Irish person would buy the Daily Mail.

I am sorry i did not have a link, a good friend who is on the ball sent me a text, by the way I can safely say same friend wont be watching Enda.

I came on board looking for a link! and was gobsmacked when there was nothing, not a sausage about it. Although after reading your link, much thanks, it did not dawn on me english one would have it, I had to smile, Enda appoints an ex advisor to work with Richard Bruton, the mind goes into overdrive, spy, report back, watch my back etc.

oh the joy of irish politics.

I can see an early election.

The sheer cheek is astounding.

I buy daily mail for the sport and the truth about our masters, no other paper puts the boot in, I wonder why?

Seriously, this guy is going to present a very solemn face tonight and tell us we have difficult times ahead and all the time everyone of them have been feathering their own nest. Its a case I'm doing fine Jack pity about you.

well one day it will be payback time

A load of pie in the sky nonsense from Kenny. He seemed quite nervous, which made me and I presume viewers quite uneasy also. He instilled absolutely no confidence in me whatsoever. He doesn't blame the people yet will allow them to pay for the sins of a certain few to keep the motherland happy. I liked the way he said 'my Government' - no Mr. Kenny it's our Government; you and your party are an elective representation of the people.

It's his government in that if it fails, it's his responsibility, certainly not mine or yours.
