Enda has left an abortion time bomb ticking for his successor
'Thanks a bloody million, Enda'. They'll never say so publicly, but that must have been the private reaction of both Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney last Sunday night when news came through of the deliberations of the Citizens' Assembly.
The results from a series of votes on abortion by assembly members stunned Leinster House. Nobody saw it coming - certainly not the Taoiseach when he came up with the wheeze of an assembly to park the abortion issue before the last General Election.
Make no mistake, a political time bomb has been set, even if Enda Kenny, Teflon-like as ever, will be safely in retirement in Castlebar by the time it goes off.
