Pensive looking Leo Varadkar this morning, at E&Y jobs launch…

Few enough words from Leo Varadkar beyond saying we are entering a potentially “rocky” period with Brexit ahead. Yes indeed.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was at E&Y’s headquarters in Dublin this morning for the firm’s announcement of 650 new jobs across Ireland.

    Good PR for EY. None of it is true of course but good PR none the less. Free advertising and exposure in the broadsheet newspapers for squares to eat up and feel good about over spending and over extending themselves. IT and Indo will be sure to post a chirpier and more optimistic photo of Leo ( maybe they’ll catch a split second where the remembers a new Kylie album is dropping or something ) . I wonder is it 600 jobs steady over 12 months? 50 a month? (HA) or the usual less than a hundred over ten months and a few months later even most of them are let go and we will get a “…sadly due to economic downturn etc…” statement buried in a single paragraph column on page 29 next September 2020.

    And he’s deliberately run the Defence Forces into the ground so that the border – and there will be a border if there’s no deal – can’t be defended.
