Where are the fighting Irish????
What we have here is a man, s failure to communicate! This twit just hasn’t got the knowhow, how to deal with the shark infested waters of Berlin, Brussels etc . Mr Kenny is the tea boy at all these meetings nobody knows he is even there, He is just an afterthought and the so called
“Irish question” doesn’t even get mentioned and it is so far down on the list of to do items it doesn’t even get on to the menu. This is because Mr Kenny doesn’t matter! We need a Rottweiler in Europe someone who knows what the hell he is talking about and someone who speaks German for God sake! Someone who can frighten the be- japers out of Angelika and her bully boys on the schoolyard of “Bullyboy alley” in Berlin.
Send in the Greeks to speak on our behalf!
