This weak Cabinet is the last sting of a wasp that will be dead before long

I suppose the thinking was that after waiting for 70 days we were supposed to go down on bended knee in gratitude at finally seeing white smoke over Leinster House.

Well I'm sorry, but I don't see it that way. What has been delivered to us is the weakest Government in the history of the State. And in terms of Cabinet selection, I would regard Taoiseach Enda Kenny's move as the last sting of a dying wasp.

My sources are in little doubt that a party poll would put Kenny a distant third behind either Simon Coveney or Leo Varadkar in the popularity stakes.
