Lise Hand: Politics showing more splits than the Bolshoi Ballet

Eamon Ryan and Enda Kenny reckoned they both had important subjects to address when they turned up at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties yesterday to give their tuppence-worth on their respective Visions on How To Fix Banjaxed Ireland (or some such title). They'd probably put a bit of work into their speeches (Enda in particular as it was all about finances and stuff).
But no such luck. For the inability of certain members of their respective parties to keep their traps shut, ensured that their plans were up in a heap.
Enda's happy plan to put yet another boot into the Government over the dreadful farrago that is Anglo during his speech last night were spectacularly blown out of the water by Loose-Lips Lucy, who hurled a handful of ninja stars at her unsuspecting leader when she turned up at MacGill on Tuesday with fighting talk of "cute-hoor politics" and "Fianna Fail Lite".
