Louis admires Enda

MUSIC mogul Louis Walsh said he never discusses politics with Westlife -- because of Nicky Byrne's family.

The Mayo man said that politics is one of the discussions they leave off the table.

"I never talk about politics with the Westlife lads because Bertie Ahern is Nicky's father-in-law," he explained.

"Bertie was around a lot and he appeared to be a nice man, but what he let the developers get away with, and what he left the bankers get away with, is incredible," he added.

But he said that he admires Enda Kenny and believes he will "surprise people".
