This afternoon.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar dismisses criticism of  his spin unit (costing five million plus) during leader’s questions in the Dáil.

Meanwhile…

Hmm.

    …it seems to be working…I heard the last 10mins of Ryan Tubridy on radio this morning and two messages were read out about how marvellous the response to the ‘crisis’ yesterday was… because Leo was at the helm…

    Is it just me or does anyone else feel like telling Leo to… “Lift your head up man, and stop dropping it into your shoulders!”

    …just me, I guess. There are lots of other things to say to him, but that just grates a bih :)

    He’s only the taoiseach. Why does he need any professional PR services?
    Clever broadsheet and their readers know better.

      He has the government press office. His departmental press office. The Fine Gael press office. Each government department has a press office. Each state agency has a press office. They pay Proneface and her malignant Clinic a fortune, as well as other outside PR heads.

      And now he’s adding another ‘unit’ for 5 million.

      We’re not saying he doesn’t need any PR, we’re saying Harvey Weinstein doesn’t need this much PR on the taxpayers dime.

        An emphasis on spin over achievement, rhetoric over substance. Blair was doing this over 20 years ago and with some success.

        Cool Hibernia anyone

      His 5m euro PR unit must have told him to go on the attack to deal with this issue. What a pedal and cranker he is.

      You know what’d be the better PR move?

      Setting up a 5mil a year anti-corruption agency instead.

    I can guarantee Leo does not give a tuppenny poo about Norn Iron.

    I genuinely don’t think he cares about much other than his career and public image. He’s typical New-Laboury era SPAD material, got into politics for the laugh, likes the cut and thrust, but this is a game for him, winnings are status and notoriety, the country doesn’t figure in it.

    Still my future ex-husband.

    How else will he mask his on-the-spectrum solicitor on coke personality? 5m might not nearly cover it.
