Liked the replay of a recent interview with Garret on Today FM this morning. He was questioned on the current crisis, and gave a very good assessment of it. Then Matt Cooper put it to him that Enda couldn't have explained the current situation as he had done. He responded by explaining that the job of a taoiseach was about "chairing" a government and that Enda was well suited to this task. He further lamented that we seemed to expect a PR skill from our toaiseach, the implication being we valued this above the core "chairing" skill.
The irony here in my mind comes back to Daz's and other comments. While undoubtably one of the cleverest politicians we've had, and honest to his toes, he wasn't the best politician as he failed to achieve consensus in his coalititions.
