People are getting very Pissed off, at the ongoing Cronyism in this Banana Republic; this Blog highlighted this Muppet Show some days ago, stating the Mayo Cute Wh… has enough Pensions, and the importance of giving a young person a Chance. We must Stop the Politicial GUBU. People Stand Up to this Golden Circle, and never ending Gravy Trains, for the Wink and Nod Brigade, including its Sponsorship of Bankrupt RTE

Enda Kenny is moving from politics to TV presenting – but some prospective viewers aren’t too pleased about his new gig. 

It was revealed earlier this week that the former taoiseach will front an Irish-language television series on RTÉ about old railway routes.

As a fluent Irish speaker, the ex-Fine Gael leader will present the show in his native tongue.

Enda Kenny will front an Irish-language television series on RTÉ about old railway routes. It is understood the show, being produced by Feiristeach Sonas Productions, will air late next year.

However, members of the public have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration that a former politician nabbed the role, as opposed to another Irish speaker who has experience in presenting or someone who already works in the arts.

A petition has been created online calling for the show to be cancelled, or for the Mayo man to be replaced as the host.

As a fluent Irish speaker, the ex-Fine Gael leader will present the show in his native tongue. The petition reads: ‘It’s completely inappropriate for the State broadcaster to give a vanity series like this to a former taoiseach and to promote the Fine Gael party who are in government.’

As of last night, almost 600 people had signed the petition.
