Enda's penchant for folklore could cost him the election
So do the regular citizens really care if Enda Kenny is not as tight as he should be about various statements of detail?
Like so many things in politics, the answer is a definite maybe. Sure, political opponents and carping journalists nitpicking about whether or not the army were on standby to defend ATMs in 2011 may well be just an interesting detail.
If this Government can show they have delivered an extra tenner take-home to middle Ireland, few enough people will remember Mr Kenny struggling to provide evidence for his "story of Ireland on the brink of monetary apocalypse".
