    Why does Mr Kenny keep on slagging off anyone who puts a question to him??

    I really really dont get what he is at and what he is doing these days with these silly slagging and mocking comments.

    Hes the leader of this country,so surely he is responsible for actually answering a question that is put to him in the Dail.


    Why is he acting like this,by mocking others???:confused:

    To buy himself time to think of an answer I'd guess.

    i think Bill Clinton used to be a fair hand at it too. Doesn't wash anymore. An old trick to either avoid the question as he doesn't know the answer or to buy time to find the answer.

    He constantly mocks anyone who stands up to him in the dail and asks him a straight honest question.

    He mocks them about "their past" or their partys past.

    Anytime leaders questions is on the TV and Enda is there,he does it.

    WHY????:confused:

    Bitta banter ....

    All polticians do this, watching the Dail here or the Parilment in London is like watching a classroom full of 10 years debate. The party leaders seem to be expected to insult each other while the backbenchers egg them on. Utterly childish behaviour!

    Cos he's a school teacher (apparently)
    They don't like being questioned, he'll give that Mary Lou one on detention one of these days, you mark my words!

    I seen it last week with your woman from sinn fein, she asked him something about 'pulling the wool over peoples eyes' and he said 'we don't pull the wool we pull the balaclavas' or something.

    Its a reaction I suspect to some what show he's not threatened bye the questions when he probably is....

    Maybe he thinks bye being seen to have a laugh and a joke he's down to earth like most people ?

    That's hardly a trait synonymous with Kenny alone - Cowen, Ahern, Reynolds and Bruton before him were all schooled in the art of deflection. The optics wouldn't be great if a Taoiseach stood up and replied "D'ya know what, you've got a point there".

    It's bravado and points scoring, something to keep the lardasses on the backbenches happy and provide an occasional soundbite to the media.

    Well, that answers my question. Ya see, I thought that as he was as highly paid as an entertainer, that that's what he actually was. Ah well, giv'is another pint there please.:confused:

    ...Because he's honestly crap at debating outside the Dail - and most know this, including him.

    ALSO - Inside the Dail he can slag, accuse, throw dirt all he wants and not be legally accountable for it.
    Outside the Dail - different normal state rules apply and he could be held accountable in a court of law for slander, defamation and liable - and he knows it.

    The next time you hear an Irish politician saying in the Dail "I dare you to step outside and say this/that!"
    ...Now you know why!
