'We have moved on now, people are working together as a team'
Brian Hayes may have backed the other side in FG's heave but he is by no means out in the cold, writes Jody Corcoran
'IF I waffle on a bit, just tell me to shut up," Brian Hayes says, as we settle in over coffee in the near-empty bar in Leinster House for what turned out to be a mercifully short interview.
I would like to tell you that I told him to "shut up" when he said that Enda Kenny would make a fine Taoiseach, actually; but I didn't, because, well, who knows, maybe Kenny will turn out to be a good Taoiseach.
The interview was brief because Hayes had shopping to do -- "the high street sector, it's decimated" -- and I had a car to dig out of snow in Rush, north Dublin, the home town of Fine Gael deputy leader, James Reilly.
