Varadkar is so PR led that I think he deserves a thread to follow how he" tries to say the right things at the right time" but yet what he says is always self serving and designed to worm his way into the minds of the sheepish electorate.
I have noticed how Leo speak as opposed to words Leo speaks make there way into the media. Taking into account his love affair with PR , Varadkar is currently sitting smugly with his newly groomed and somewhat odd looking eyebrows. Let us foll him ...............................

Good news today from Varadkar ...

Mowl, you are right - he is a massive publicity hound - and in the process making sure the electorate view him as the natural leader and not standoffish Micheál Martin.

As for his eyebrows - they do give him a sharper more Vlad type look - not good. They need to be redrawn urgently! :cool:

Maybe the electorate will come to view him as a spoofer with a sneaky underhanded nature.
What is more important.
Scoring political points or getting the country through the current situation?

The only 'situation' to get through is one of fabrication.

Varadker is a blank, one of those edgeless entities upon which can be projected any message you wish to believe, where are his values or philosphies, what does he actually base his views upon, should he actually have any of his own?

Wasn’t there something about him that he didn’t get enough points to study medicine in university, and he took law then as his second choice. But a few months into his law course, he was “awarded” extra points so that he could study medicine. Can such awarding be done for everybody? Say, the students this year who have been loused by the CAO increasing the points for courses.
Of course, it would be interesting to know why, and by who he was awarded those extra points. Not that it had any great effect on the health service, as he ran away from that (same as from health, tourism, etc. etc.)

A couple of points there -

There is huge anger amongst fee paying schools who are convinced that they were marked down by the education authority while state funded schools were boosted. I know of two which are looking to redress the situation through legal channels if need be. I'm not a natural fan of private education but playing politics with the future of the young is a diabolical development.

Secondly, the question doing the rounds of the HSE when Leo volunteered to man the covid phones was is he actually entitled to do so? He might well be qualified as a GP but he has to keep up his registration with the department of health. It was never made clear and the assumption was that there would be a qualified and registered doctor sitting at his elbow.

Conferred 20/6/2003. Didn’t register until 1/2004

He let it lapse, but there’s no such record (in the above)
