Stop playing this silly game over election date
Taoiseach Enda Kenny must end speculation about the timing of the forthcoming General Election.
As Taoiseach, Mr Kenny is entitled to allow the Coalition to see out its full term, as he has always insisted that it would. And he is equally entitled to opt for a November election, should he so desire.
What he is not entitled to do is prevaricate unduly or, worse, subvert the Budget process and distract from the most important issues of the day.
