In one of the more admirable traditions of the UK, David Cameron has recognised his responsibility and resigned after his Brexit defeat.

In this country, we had the never seen before intervention of the Irish state in the constitutional affairs of another – Enda Kenny leading delegations to the UK to promote a UK stay vote, and in the process establishing an unwelcome precedent.

Enda Kenny should now recognise his failure, and do the right thing – resign.

He should have resigned or been pushed after the Trump comments.

Why? Did he call a referendum to leave the EU? Did he lose that referendum?

As the Taoiseach of the country most likely to be affected by this result, and with it being in the national interest to prevent negative economic consequences for this country, the Taoiseach was correct to take the limited role that he did. Any other approach would have been irresponsible.

Obama interfered also, should he resign too?

It suits FF to have the village idiot in place to take any fallout.
It really does. They have found themselves in a wonderful position politically. Whether it's pulling strokes or pulling strings, nobody out pulls FF.

At least they aren't being made vote again.

We would definitely have had to vote...till we get it "right".

It was bad enough him launching himself in the middle of a foreign country's referendum but when Cameron pulled out of the engagement Kenny should definitely have run for the hills. The fact that he stayed says more about his useless sense of diplomacy and awareness and worth(less) than anything else. He is a disgrace.

You'd wonder did Micheál plant the seed that led to him jumping in with both feet.

Obama did not turn up to the UK at a specific Referendum event and try to convince the voters to vote in a particular way. He gave his opinion when asked but moved on quickly as far as I am aware.

Cameron resigned so his legacy wouldn't have the double whammy of losing the referendum and negotiating the inevitably humiliating Leave deal with the EU.

Kenny is in a similar position having botched the FG re-election and then leading a government beholden to opposition for whose he will take the rap.

However Kenny won't resign. Consider the future prospects - Cameron will get directorships and a multi-million book deal. Kenny will not, it's in his own interests to hang on to the Taoiseach's salary as long as possible.

I do not disagree with you in any of that, and he is a disgrace. But the essence of the Op seems to be that because Cameron has resigned over the EU BREXIT, then Kenny should go too. He shouldn't.

The John McNulty affair is a different story, and that was certainly a resigning situation.

The Dame wouldn't know the 'right thing' if it jumped up and bit him on the face.
