Enda Kenny has been the leader of Fine Gael since 2002. In that time he has revitalised the party but he has failed to capitalise on the failures of Fianna Fail. Today’s resignation of George Lee is the final nail in the coffin for my support for Enda Kenny.
There needs to be a change of thinking at the top of the party, a change in how policy and where policy comes from. There needs to be more involvement of the grass roots in policy making. This includes actual debates happening at Ard Fheis and National Conference as I have called for in my response to a survey on the upcoming National Conference. (I will post that later)
Its time for Enda to put up or move on. He can bring us so close, but he can not take us over the line. Its simple, there is not going to be a Fine Gael government under the leadership of Enda Kenny. I have come to that realisation now.
I call on Enda to resign the leadership for the good of the party.
