Enda's on thong in poll walkabout

DURING the last election, Enda Kenny's wife revealed he has only one pair of Calvin Kleins-- but yesterday he veered off the presidential trail to stock up.

After a morning of shaking hands with Mass-goers, the Taoiseach and his presidential candidate Gay Mitchell had a lads' afternoon out as they ventured into a Limerick sex shop.

However, Mr Mitchell's wife Norma was hot on their heels to make sure they got up to no mischief. The duo found no customers to canvass in Ann Summers but gallantly tried to impress staff.

"I've never seen a Taoiseach in a place like this before," said staff member Debbie Cropper.

Asked would she be voting for the man from Dragons' Den or the den of iniquity, she assured that Mitchell's sex shop trip was worth it.
