Gene Kerrigan: The sad truth is, Enda Kenny's a chicken

As the crisis unfolds our leaders want us to bury our heads in the sand, just like them, writes Gene Kerrigan

What's on tomorrow's political news agenda? Some minister may be exposed for spending over the odds for a hotel room on a visit to foreign parts. Some politician most of us don't care about will attack some politician we wish we'd never heard of.

And the political journalists (and no one else) will get excited about some short-lived development in the fiscal treaty campaign.

Any or all or none of these might top the headlines. There's one thing that we can be pretty sure will be way down the news agenda. That's the gift of €2.25bn that we're bestowing tomorrow on another lucky bunch of rich people. It probably won't even rate a mention.
