Kenny's first job must be to free us from debt millstone

I share with Enda Kenny a deep distaste for Vincent Browne as a radio or television interviewer and never accept invitations to his programmes.
Browne and I have enjoyed an ongoing personal relationship about which I have no complaint. It goes back to the time when he was founding 'Magill' magazine, of which I became a director, and it is ongoing to this day. Our recent last meeting revealed a kind and perceptive understanding of problems I was facing and he spoke of some of his own.
I can never understand why, when he appears in front of cameras or sits down behind microphones, the character of 'Mad Dog' Browne is likely to emerge and throw a skip full of spanners into the proceedings.
