Is Enda Kenny's refusal to appoint a Minister for Brexit a big mistake?

Enda Kenny rejected an opposition demand that a Cabinet member have special responsibility for Brexit some time ago.

Watching PrimeTime now, the serious economic after effects are already being felt in the agri sector. While the Minister for Agriculture Michael Creed maintains that there is a coordinated approach within government to tackle the challenges of a Brexit, he seems to have said that the sub committee on Brexit have met just twice since July.

Would you like to see the appointment of a Minister for Brexit to coordinate the response to and implications of Brexit and if so, who would you appoint?

Not from the current bunch of eejits.

None of them are intelligent or brave enough.

All joking aside, the predicted bleak impact on Ireland of a Brexit seems already to be unfolding, surely the appointment of a person to oversee the impact makes sense?

BREXIT is a massive once in a lifetime opportunity for Ireland.. we should fast track a new runway at Dublin Airport, Metro North, a Dublin underground and build buckets of houses and apartments within the M50 zone to house and transport an influx of professionals relocating from the UK.., (Of course we should be doing this anyway for our own people)

Don't think so . There is nothing can be done truth told . The Brits and the EU don't know what is going to happen . There is a correction going on now to the British economy . Too early for a non job .

Utter bollox . Everything should be geared at moving things from Dublin. The total centralisation on Dublin over past 20 years is the root of our problems now.

Odd, the FG poster who made a glib remark quickly deleted it. Curious.

Of course....but we have this thing in this country, where we think Ministers are supermen/women, rather than just figureheads of the Civil Service.

If we can make the Department of Communications responsible for 'Climate Action'....why not just stick brexit on the end of 'Transport, Toursim and Sport'. Shane Ross is fecked anyway.

Classic response.

Thst buffoon Flanagan, Frances the airhead & MMOC are looking after matters. No wonder we are bunched.

There has been absolutely no long term negative effect of Brexit for us, GB or anyone else yet.

If there is, it will be purposely manufactured by a bunch of unelected scumbags, owned by a very rich and powerful bunch of even greater scumbags.

The scumbags might have met their match.

The impression I've been getting from 'establishment' Ireland and in particular from our political 'class' since June is complacency and the usual hope that things will just sort of work themselves out kind of rubbish...

Brexit has massive implications for Ireland in all sorts of ways... more than anywhere else... including Britain... and yet the usual auld 'it'll be alright on the night' kind of bullsh!t attitude seems to be prevailing...

And of course yet again... as the storm clouds gather the feckin' unions have decided to turn up the heat like they did in 2008 as the country went down the sh!tter, and seem determined to occupy the Government for months ahead when what the Government should be concentrating on are the implications of Brexit...

As usual we will navel gaze and self obsess and fail to prepare... and therefore fail altogether...

If Brexit goes as badly as it has the potential to for Ireland then we're gonna be in for another lost decade at least and all the feckin' misery that that will entail...

The evidence indicates that thrre is no influx.

If anything the jobs moving to the UK.

The Irish media get found out to be a collection of donkeys. Again.

No its a typical ff solution- create another quango/minister without power.
We have ministers for all main departments who can sort it.
