'The Taoiseach and his advisers have turned mismanagement of a crisis into a veritable art form'
There is always one fate-defining moment in the demise of a political leader. Taoiseach Enda Kenny had his moment on RTÉ's 'This Week' programme last Sunday.
During the interview, by default or by design, the Taoiseach began to spin a web that would put his Government in jeopardy and plunge the Fine Gael party into crisis.
Whilst the burden of responsibility for the events of the last week must fall squarely on Mr Kenny's shoulders, in Government no man is an island.
