Kenny, the lion of the desert, has turned into a lamb
The pylon row has seen him flip-flop over a big decision, writes Fionnan Sheahan
Taoiseach Enda Kenny must have bought a pair of flip-flops on his way home from the Gulf at the start of the month.
During his trade mission to Saudi Arabia, Mr Kenny was a lion of the desert in defending the Government's approach to pylons.
He linked the €3.2bn upgrade of the power network to youth emigration, by warning of the consequences of not providing the power infrastructure that was needed.
