Those of us who have written about our Taoiseach for longer than we might like, never thought we would be writing about Enda's gay nightmare.

The 'gay nightmare' scenario has nothing to do with the possibility that Dear Leader Enda is terrified of or opposed to gays. Instead, for the most part of his career he has maintained a respectful silence crossed with wary neutrality on the gay issue.

Enda's gay nightmare on this occasion is the onrushing referendum on gay marriage.
