If you can't stand the heat don't make big decisions in a kitchen

Never make life-changing decisions anywhere near the bread bin - or any other of the standard accoutrements - in the typical family kitchen.

That just might be one of the main conclusions we can arrive at, as the fall-out from the whole Commissioner Callinan resignation debacle lingers somewhere out there in the ether. The question remains - could the consequences of the whole tawdry affair come back to haunt Enda Kenny?

Despite all that's been said and done, there's still lots we still don't know about the lead-up to that fateful night. Maybe in the fullness of time the brooding presence of Alan Shatter might shed light on a few dark corners - especially if provoked to do so because things don't go his way within the Fine Gael fold.
