Fionnan Sheahan: This Coalition's silly season just goes on and on

TAOISEACH Enda Kenny yesterday declared three times that "the silly season is over". Let's hope he repeated the mantra to his cabinet ministers as they met for the first time after the summer break.
Ministers gathered following the turmoil caused by the botched handling of the announcement of health cuts, which had been well flagged. Mr Kenny was making a thinly veiled reference to the opposition to the package of health cuts or the speculation about a snap general election.
He was either having a dig at the media or the comments of coalition backbenchers, who have been leaping up and down about the package of €130m cuts in the health services.
