Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said he is flattered by media reports suggesting he could become head of the European Union’s executive, but insisted he was not seeking a career change.

Mr Varadkar said: “I’m flattered to be considered for the position of EU Commission President, but I have a job, it’s as Taoiseach of Ireland.

“I’m loving the job, I’m only getting started I hope, so I’ve no plans for a career change at this stage.

    Anyone recall the time when Bertie Ahern was mooted as a contender for EU Council Prez?

    ‘It would be very unlikely he would welcome a move to Europe at this time…’

    He’d be off faster than you could say cervical scandal or childrens hospital or waiting lists or homelessness

    sorry to be pedantic but:

    “Varadker has only been leader of his country for two years”

    should read

    “Varadker has only been UNELECTED leader of his country for two years”

    ”Kenny star has faded”.

    What star? His elevation to Taoiseach was only possibly due to a domestic and global financial meltdown, a total meltdown of the only real opposition and he was the longest serving TD.

    He was almost as useless as Leo and as full of as much bull droppings.
