That old devil called shove...

They've issued a stability warning about the Cliffs of Moher. Apparently, following recent landslides parts of the cliffs are unstable and could fall into the sea. People are being warned to stay on the official path and not to stray off it. The official path, they tell us metaphysically, is the inner path.

There is now pressure to extend this stability warning to cover the whole country. The place is dangerously unstable and parts of it could definitely fall into the sea at some stage, or at least become detached by the geological phenomenon known as Brexit borders. Though there's no sense in warning the whole country to stay on the right path. We strayed off the right path a long time ago now.

Some would date it back as far as November when Enda delayed in calling an election. This led to a lack of a landslide for him and a mild landslide for Fianna Fail. The instability really took hold last week as we threw the Constitution over the cliff - and now there seems to be a clamour to throw Enda Kenny over the cliff too.
