Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, centre, Minister for Business Heather Humphries TD, left, and Fine Gael chairman Martin Heydon at City Assembly House, Dublin ahead of a Fine Gael party meeting today

This afternoon.

Michael Brennan, in the Business Post, reports:

There has to be a three-week election campaign, because the election date must be between the 18th and 25th day of the clerk of the Dáil moving the writ for a general election.

So the earliest election date would be in early to mid-February – such as Friday 7 or Friday 14.

Varadkar has been joking that he could go for an election on February 14 for the love of the people and a “Valentine’s day massacre” of his opponents.

Right so.

    The Valentines Day Massacre was a war between gangsters where one gang was lined up against a wall and executed…am I right? Good one Leo….good one.

    We need more snarky journalists to throw an oul comment at these press things when he verbally skutters?
    But I’d be willing to bet that everyone laughed……puke!
