You sir are a fool, this clown will be a total flop, just like May in uk the media loved him but just wait till people turn on him, he isnt liked by majority of or members, he is cold, rude, arrogant and no Garret
Well, all the more reason to keep a comprehensive and objective record of his performance so - let people decide based on facts and actual analysis.

In 2011 Kenny had an opportunity to "fix" Ireland but chose to keep things very much "as you were" but needed to dig deeper into honest peoples' pockets to bury the mistakes of his predecessors.

Unfortunately Varadkar doesn't have the same opportunity because ultimately FF are breathing down his neck setting him up to fail, his own party didn't elect him and after 6 years of buggery the citizens are wary of FG.

Not a great place to start.
I know. It was so easy in 2011.

An inherited €25 billion ANNUAL deficit was such an easy deficit to close :(

If he keeps Fitzgerald in Justice he should resign straight away , but I suspect he is not that dim and will move her to somewhere where her incompetence does not matter , but will be probably still keep her as Tanaiste.
Perhaps he will put that Judas Bruton in the job, he betrayed the members by ignoring our views and backing Lying Leo

Just as well your blueshirts followed the FF/Troika plan then, isn't it child?
BTW, the deficit in 2011 was €17.7 billion, so you're only €7.3 billion out!:D

Did the OP fall on his head last night? I was under the impression his opinion of LV was well-formed:

Frank Flannery and now by extension Varadkar are responsible for much of what's wrong with this country.

Coveney wants to establish an anti-corruption agency to address Ireland's rampant corruption, Varadkar wants to keep corruption going with Frank Flannery as chief adviser and PR agent.
Coveney is proud of his partner and comfortable with bringing him/her to functions and events....despite being "the only gay in the village" and having the country happily accept same sex marriage Varadkar has declared he won't be bring his partner to functions and events - it seems he's only gay in Ireland but doesn't want to be gay in Europe.
It highlights what a two faced bastard Varadkar, that's important to many people.
Certainly that would cost him a lot of RTE airtime...I think next to Pantibliss, Varadkar is RTE's second biggest contributor
Either he did fall on his head or he got a personality transplant.

Or....he is not being entirely honest. :lol:

I've just put you on ignore as I suspect you are using this site as some kind of therapy.
I don't think I should have to endure this..

First things first, Vradkar the Gay one will immediately sack that Patsy Harris and sacrifice the child to save the mother of all fúck-ups(Health/HSE), Next for the chop will be the Tainaiste and minister for justice who will be moved to Social protection, Zappony will be took off her foreign Man-boy Crusades and given Health which should leave her too knackered to do any real harm!(It turned poor harris's hair grey).

Panti Bliss will of course become the minister for privileged Bull-Shít and Dail entertainment.


Leo's main failures so far have been both Health and also Social Protection!
He did nothing substantial in either porthole apart from a lot of kicking cans down the long road to Edna's retirement party.

I couldn't give a flying f u c k if he is gay or not, what i do care about is the fact he is lying blueshirt who despises the working classes and will further enrich big business whilst continuing FG's race to the bottom on wages and conditions.

So by tomorrow evening a relative new comer to politics will be Taoiseach.

Leo Varadkar clear to become Taoiseach | Irish Examiner

No one knows really how he'll perform - will lack of experience be his downfall, or will the fact that he has relatively less baggage than 90% of other politicians give him the freedom to succeed where others have failed.

I'd like to see this thread endure throughout his time as Taoiseach so there's a comprehensive audit of his successes and failures throughout his time in office.

In the meantime I wish him the best of luck as our Taoiseach.
He isn't Taoiseach yet, nor is it guaranteed.

Like it or not Varadkar will likely lead this country for some time from tomorrow.

He is largely unencumbered - even if he has kept some bad company recently - and to an extent my future will depend on his performance, so I genuinely wish him good luck and hope he knocks it out of the park.

I also believe it will be interesting sometime in the future to look back at a "blow by blow" account of his highs and lows.

You make it sound like a game.

Maybe it's Matt we should have in govt instead ...

Leo added: ‘Matt is definitely cleverer than me. Which occasionally, I can find intimidating. He is very, very intelligent. He can read faster than me. He can do calculations faster than me.

If we don't learn from the past we're liable to make the same mistakes over and over again - it's clear from our recent leaders that we haven't been learning much.

The airwaves are full of triumphal praise for Kenny as he retires on a CEO's salary after 40 years of piss poor public "service", as if the monumental gaffes and downright incompetence and venality he demonstrated over the past decade have been - somehow - forgotten.

The irony of someone telling how clever someone is by using metrics that certainly do not measure intelligence.

Reading speed and calculations do not make one 'clever' Leo.

Leo is great for the sound bites and the soft focus media stuff but in general, he does not inspire confidence.
