Enda has nobody to blame but himself

To borrow a turn of phrase from Enda Kenny on an  RTE’s Six One news bulletin recently: ’we will not tolerate law abiding citizens being prevented from going about their lives’ because of the extortion of money from people already impovershed  by taxes that are  wasted in an unfathomable bureaucracy. 

Yes, the Minister for Social Protection was effectively locked in her car for two hours. But what about the hundreds of people who are effectively locked in their houses because of his  poverty regime? 

I accept that it was Fianna Failure (with Micheal Martin as a leading figure) who put us in this predicament but they and Fine Gael merely take it in turns every four years to prove that the other party is unfit to govern

Perhaps if the aforementioned minister had protected us from Enda Kenny's poverty regime?
