RTE captured this interesting vignette today as Dame Edna strolled into his second day on the job.
Yes, he probably got a lift to the bottom of Merrion Street, but it’s a start.
Better still is the chit-chat he shares with the photographers. It’s a little weird. It’s a little provincial. But after 14 years of shitheads waving as their limos swept into Leinster House, there’s a little bit of charm about it too.
Also someone has told him to lose the whole ‘thumbs aloft’ thing. Which is a mistake, we feel.
