Anything Good In ‘Time’?

at

Ah here.

Jennifer Duggan reports:

Showing TIME around his new office on July 7, one of the pictures ready to be put on the wall is a copy of the first sovereign bond issued to the Irish Free State.

It’s there as a daily reminder not to be complacent, he says, that “no matter what happens even the revolutionaries had to go to the bond market in order to sustain the free state.”

Needs more leprechaun.

FIGHT!

    That is a ludicrous picture of Leo. Seriously, he is a photogenic fella and they chose this one!

    Ah Leo I really want to like him. I just however cannot look past the sustained campaign against vulnerable members of society. I’ve never even taken welfare, never mind fraud, but he still makes me feel guilty. If my life went one step differently that would be me he’s sneering at insultingly, it’s not but it still feels like it. I just don’t understand why, he would be popular without these attacks. Unless it’s some form of polarizing to keep core support, but even then is that really useful? If he really is trying to channel a Trudeau like figure why all the ‘hard left’ and poor bashing. He just can’t keep that stuff to himself, he can’t hide that appears to have no empathy with a large section of citizens. If he was a good politician he could fake it a little but he just can’t bring himself to or is advised not to. It’s a shame because he could be a unifying presence, or maybe less of a shame because that would strengthen FG.

    “no matter what happens even the revolutionaries had to go to the bond market in order to sustain the free state.”
