You know what it's like to wake up happy, right? I'm hoping Enda Kenny woke up feeling delighted this morning because I heard his words 'let's hit the ground running' and I want to jog along, for today.
Enda said some interesting things about social justice on Tuesday night, so let's start with mental health.
He said mental health is where he really wants to make a difference. He, Gilmore and Martin had devoted two minutes and 10 seconds out of a total 90-minute debate to the entire social agenda. Gilmore wanted to make a difference on disability and Martin favoured equality of educational opportunity for every child. A case of motherhood and apple pie?
