We all have our faults, myself included. I thought I was aware of most of mine until this week when my parliamentary colleague Michael McGrath informed me that I have two more: being arrogant and out of touch.

Why? Because I will not contemplate the idea of going into government as Fine Gael's junior partner.

When the election comes around, Fine Gael candidates will have the burden of going to the doors saying: "Vote for me and I'll make Enda Kenny Taoiseach for another five more years."
