The Taoiseach went on telly this morning and made scones

Following an interview with Enda Kenny on the upcoming marriage equality referendum, the audience was promised that the leader of the government would show the nation how to make a scone - which turned out not be a joke.

"We've removed all vestiges of Vincent Browne - just in case you're allergic to him like garlic," the Taoiseach was promised by host Mark Cagney.

And, true to his word, after the commercial break, Enda stood next to the kitchen counter as Odlums baker Catherin Leyden set about mixing up some scones, much to the nation's bemusement.

Which is almost the same thing as "making scones", we suppose.

"I'd destroy any kitchen," the Taoiseach laughed. "I can simmer-ise the sausages."

"I'll have to bring Catherine into the Dáil!" Enda said as the host went about cutting the scones.

The Taoiseach, it turns out, is a jam man - no cream for him - and even took the opportunity to thank the nice woman who sends him a couple of jars of lovely jam every year.

Lovely.

Never change, Ireland, you magnificently barmy country.
