A Limerick A Day


File Photo Fine Gael Leadership Crisis. It was highly significant that the two leading contenders to replace Mr Kenny,ÊSimon Coveney and Mr Varadkar, both addressed a meeting with an almost identical message. It was a simple and direct one: the party needed to be ready for anÊelection from now on. End.17/2/2010 Young Fine Gael Jobs Campaign launch.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny with Leo Varadkar (right( and Simon Coveney

Simon and Leo both say
That they’re not expecting delay
But both men must wait
To find out their fate
As Enda still won’t name the day.

    Christ, leo and simon are even more lacking in spine than enda. A coward like him must recognise the signs of cowardice in the other 2 and is happy they won’t lift a finger to shaft him. he’ll see the blushirts torn asunder before he’ll leave

  2. On The Buses

    Clearly Enda has form on finding excuses to stay. He will continue to give reasons why his mighty leadership and wealth of experience is needed to Ireland through every hurdle, My money is on him still being in power until the Brits fully leave the EU.

    He’s a scummy little man who’d lick the poop out of someone’s bottom area if it meant he could stay on.

    An utterly loathsome man.

      Just curious, Mildred – did you actually write “lick the poop out of someone’s bottom area”?

    It probably says far more about me and my lack of ambition, but I can’t fathom why Enda wouldn’t resign now. Take a lovely pension, 6 holidays a year, eat a cooked breakfast at 11am every morning while reading the paper, etc, etc. Bliss……if you like that kind of thing.

      It’s a puzzle. Even if he was holding on for a big victory, the coverage of his Trump speech is the best he’s likely to get.

      Maybe he wants to position a successor? Shaft Varadkar by outflanking him on Repeal?

      This week, on Things Clampers Blames The Regressive Left For: Enda Kenny staying in office!

      Tune in later for the weather forecast, as Clampers explains that the rain moving in from the Atlantic is caused by feminism

      1. mildred st. meadowlark

        Everyone knows that rainclouds are attracted to feminists.

        Sure, it’s raining in my house right now.

        1. Clampers Outside!

          LOL! Nobody laugh at LWs beloved left :)

          And everything I say must be taken seriously… because everyone knows the left is these devoid of humour due to self policing speech and the pursuit of stupifying political correctness. You down the back, stop laughing, LW is serious!

          Poor LW…. poor, poor LW, the weather must be triggering.
          I’ll get me other coat, it’s raining feminists or something :)

      2. Sheik Yahbouti

        LW. Absolutely excellent. There could be a whole psychiatric symposium on Clampers’ strange bugbears.

    1. Clampers Outside!

      Not joking…. you really think that? I doubt it.
      that’s just more LOLs in fairness! …..if so, then you think that “reasons'” is a serious effort, and that’s reason well enough to give as a reason for doing something…. right,ok.

      Not like you in fairness. I guess you have “reasons”… ;)
