Enda fails to build on his ratings win

ENDA beat Gerry by a margin of 3-1 in the TV stakes (but he still won't debate him).

The Sinn Fein president's leader's speech at the party's ard fheis on Saturday night got an average audience of 64,000. But the Taoiseach's referendum broadcast on Sunday evening drew 185,000.

Unfortunately, Mr Kenny has not built on his status for drawing captive audiences. Instead, he's continued to faff about why he's not participating in debates.

The latest wheeze is he doesn't want to afford Sinn Fein a platform -- or whatever.
