Dublin Castle, Dublin 2
Taoiseach and Fine Gael leader Leo Varadkar (top with Minister of State at the Department of Finance and the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform with special responsibility for Financial Services and Insurance Michael Darcy) delivers a keynote address at the the European Financial Forum.
We’re not a company.
We’re an Inc.
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said responsibility now falls on Sinn Féin to build a coalition and negotiate a socialist Programme for Government that keeps their promises.
They should then seek a Dáil majority for it, he added.
Speaking to the media after addressing the European Financial Forum in Dublin, Mr Varadkar said Sinn Féin has emerged as the largest party in terms of votes and they did this by making a lot of promises to people in this country.
He said Fine Gael is willing to step back and let Sinn Féin try to form a government, adding that he had not yet been contacted by Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald.
Leo Varadkar behaved shamefully over Brexit. He became a tool of the EU establishment. Brussels used him to frustrate Brexit and British democracy itself. Now, at last, he has got his comeuppance from Irish voters. Good riddance Leo, says Brendan O’Neillhttps://t.co/ng66klJus1
