“He Gave Us Back Our Future”



This morning.

Shelbourne Hotel, Dublin 2

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar after presenting former Taoiseach Enda Kenny with the Irish European of the Year award, which the European Movement awarded to him “for his leadership in accepting Europe’s onerous terms leading Ireland out of the bailout”.

      No more so than the two crooked sockets in the foreground, what

      I don’t really know what I mean by that but it sounded good in my head

    Was this after our government gave Euro200,000 to the European Movement?

    Not good use of taxpayers money.

      Well it’s not like that €200,000 comes from Leo’s Department of the Taoiseach….oh wait it does.

      But it’s not like Enda was previously the Taoiseach….oh wait he was.

      Anyway Senator Jillian Van Turnhout was on the board of the European Movement to select the “Irish European of the Year”. It’s not like she got the Senator position as a result of a nomination by Enda Kenny when he was Taoiseach….oh wait it was.

        Kenny was president of this taxpayer-funded organization. In other words, he is clapping himself on the back, paid for by you and I.

          Brothers rather frank if complementary comments on Hugh as a lady got deleted on the man turned into woman thread earlier,

          1. Brother Barnabas

            i assumed it was the secondary comment on ian mckellen that got me deleted

            perhaps you’re right though

    All in all this is a strange thread. It started out sensibly with comments on FG’s whitewashing and glossing of Enda’s legacy and term as Taoiseach…….. but now it has taken a weird homoerotic turn.

    How is this not a
    Not a Caption Competition

    he literally didn’t do anything. businesses themselves did all the work. he just happened to have the Taoseach title while that happened. If anything he made it harder with his constant selling us out to the lowest bidder.

    1. Frilly Keane

      Shur’ look what they gave him
      A bitta glass
      The kind ya’d get from the Pitch n’ Putt
      Or the Over-60s singing competition

      Tisn’t a one off “insert famous living sculptor”
      Or gold his n’ her Roles

    Poo show, expected nothing less with this sell out involved.

    Here’s the shower who thinks he’s great
    The stink of official Ireland all over them – IBEC/Arthur Cox/Mercer, one of the fupping Guinness’.

    European of the year, my hole

    So he gave us back our future?
    What absolute guff
    Future generations of debtors not yet born landed with the bill
    A national debt of over 200 billion more than it was before the crash
    That’s our future
