Lise Hand: Revolting kids send Enda into cross muinteoir mode

KIDS, eh? They grow up so fast. One minute they're shy newbies on the political block, and before you know it they're taking advantage of a free house to have their mates over to plot a revolution.

Poor Enda was only out of the country for three days, but eight of his backbenchers managed to cause mischief by sticking their collective oar into the sticky government wicket that is the Croke Park agreement. Or Croke Nark, between one squabble and another.

The Taoiseach must be getting fed up with the word Croker, what with Donegal snatching Sam from Mayo, and now with Fine Gael's own Bash Street Kids throwing paper planes at Labour and the public sector by suggesting -- no, worse, sending an open letter to a newspaper -- that aspects of the agreement should be examined.
