Take it as red

I am writing in defence of Taoiseach Enda Kenny following his comments about Junior Minister Kathleen Lynch being a "doughty fighter" as evidenced by her "flaming red hair".

To demonise Mr Kenny is absolutely ridiculous and gives credence to Kevin Myers's recent article (Irish Independent, January 12). 'Equality' is simply the feminist right to whinge.

Any honest, fair-minded, individual will interpret Mr Kenny's description of Ms Lynch as being highly complimentary. The 'Webster International Dictionary' defines doughty as being brave or valiant.
