So what if he says one thing to an Irish audience and another to the Davos set? That's political life and we should be used to it by now. Any man that can keep the three balls that are Germany/France/UK in the air, with the odd flick for the US, is a fair man.

Enda, to use a word abused by many in this nation, is a survivor. Taken from school as a young, fair-haired boy, he was forced to work in a grim, grey old building full of fat old men who wore pinstripe suits, smoked cigars and drank whiskey. Listening to eternal spoof, sham and cod acting, Enda wore it well. Never put on a pound, had the poster boy image and played like a hard-working forward.
