Let's forget our woes and help cheer up the Taoiseach

• The list of complaints for the Government are racking up at a rate that your learned staff are more than capable of covering, so rather than add to the hue and cry, is it not time to look for some positivity, considering the season that is now upon us?

In an effort to see same, I tuned in to 'Oireachtas Report' last night and an alarming sight confronted me. It was that of our Taoiseach. Mr Kenny, I thought, looked hounded. His eyes and the cut of his jib, as they say, seemed deeply worried. We can say what we like, and I have, about Mr Kenny, but when the elected leader of our nation looks so visibly shaken, is it not time for us all to take stock?

The case against the Government is serious. It is more than a case at this stage; the Government is in terminal freefall. So how did it all go wrong?
