It is an ill wind that's no good for kite flying
• Our Taoiseach Enda Kenny, also known as "his happiness", briefed his ministers about kite flying before this year's Budget. He did not want the people to be unduly worried by leaks coming out from different government departments.
Our leader thinks about our well-being all the time. There is no point letting TDs and senators know what cuts to their salaries are about to take place. There is no point in speculating that their expenses will be cut by 30pc.
What would happen if they heard that on the airwaves. Shock, horror. They would be quivering in their boots.
