So...Varadkar is the most popular Taoiseach....since Bertie Ahern.

Taoiseach's approval rating is highest since Bertie Ahern...

Are there worrying parallels between the two men?

Both have been accused of being more about style than substance.

Both have focused on building a strong economy so that - sometime later, they promised they would focus on society.

Both are prone to mangling the truth.

So far only Ahern led his country over the edge at the end of an artificial bubble.

Varadkar has spent more time on his 'Image' than any other Taoiseach than I can recall

- in the Age of Social Media

- that has paid off handsomely...:cool:

Comparing this pup to Bertie who delivered peace and success to the Irish people is deluded!

Bertie is a national treasure.

Jaysus, howlin 18% approval.

I'm guessing that only Cowen towards the end was ever that low

Howlin?

Does he lead the labour party now or something?

TBH I was surprised he got that much

He keeps a very low profile for the Leader of what is supposed to be a major Party

Was this poll taken before Leo provoked universal " outrage" over his comments that some parents give their kids a dig out?

If so the results today would be very different - all those shinners, squawking media, and lardyar$es wouldn't think he's very good.
