To Enda Kenny, the abortion row is a job for his successor
Enda Kenny has at last opened his car park for dangerous vehicles. And on Saturday afternoon, he got one of the most dangerous political piles safely off the highway and successfully parked out of harm's way.
Yes indeed, showing all his 40 years of political sagacity, Enda Kenny has grounds to calculate that he will not have to sweat too much over that bundle of trouble again in his political lifetime. Finding a remedy for our 33-year-old periodic war over the 'A-word' - abortion - is really a matter for his successor.
The Gaelic term is "méar-fhadchas" - the ability to put nasties on the long finger. Successful politicians rarely have short fingers.
