And with one leap he is gone. Well, almost and after much hesitation and false starts. An Taoiseach, Enda Kenny, has announced his resignation as the head of Fine Gael from midnight tonight. Though, in typical Éanna style, he will stay on as a caretaker leader, of government and party, until early June. So now the fun begins. My money is on Leo Varadkar, darling of the libertarian-right, though FG’s blue rinse brigade might not be so sure. However, how will Fianna Fáil react to a rival taking power who is popular with much of the conservative press? Here’s hoping for a scrappy internal selection process and an early general election.
