Kenny has left abortion issue in less-than-safe pair of hands
THE Labour Party doesn't trust him on anything. Fine Gael backbenchers don't trust him on much – and certainly not on abortion.
He has a well-established reputation for being accident-prone. He is a less-than-safe pair of political hands. And yet Enda Kenny has left the sensitive issue of abortion with Dr James Reilly.
Unsurprisingly, the draft legislation has ended up as a major bone of contention between the two coalition parties. It was always going to be so and there is much merit in the issues at hand being debated thoroughly among ministers.
