    Because he goes sock shopping and when he can be found spouts ignorance.
    Record breaking numbers of child homelessness.

    Just because Leo says there's nothing to see here, doesn't mean there's nothing to see. Higher rate of debt than Greece, record breaking housing/homeless crises/health service still bad/hospital trolley scandal/cronyism ongoing...

    Retail Sales UP - False, they are down.
    House Prices UP - not great for the accompanying Housing/Homeless crises
    Household debt DOWN - yeah, but we are the fourth most indebted in all the EU
    Household savings UP - Going down since July of 2017
    Wages UP - Slightly below this time last year actually
    Construction Booming - Booms always work out swell....anyhoo that's based on profits not builds
    Services Sector UP -
    Exports UP - Down compared to last January
    Manufacturing UP - Uncertainty with Trump and Brexit, but hopefully continues.
    FDI UP - Tax haven, sure why wouldn't they? Vulture funds welcome.
    Tourism UP - Well done...Leo?
    Confidence UP - I'm sure you've done research?
    Banks Lending UP - People are borrowing more?
    New business Start ups UP - Good
    SME closures DOWN - Decline in lending to SME's causing closures, kinda sh*ts on 'Banks Lending UP'.
    IT receipts UP
    Vat receipts UP
    CT receipts UP
    Excise UP
    CAT receipts UP
    LIVE REGISTER < 6%
    Employment UP 350,000
    BALANCED BUDGET from a € 25 BILLION ANNUAL DEFICIT
    Bond Rates <.5% from 15%++
    IMF gone

    I could go on. Got browned off. Needless-to-say Leo has had no impact. We've been riding the tide, as we will be when it crashes against the shore.
    In the areas were FG could be making a difference, the crises are worse now YOY than 2011, 2012, 2013....
    More child homelessness than the slum days of the 1930's.

    Or logs on as Galt.
    I’m actually surprised at Hammer too. He hasn’t given one, not one, instance of a success for Varadkar since he became Taoiseach. A series of copy-and-pastes and he thinks he’s off the hook. Very poor showing.

    Asking for examples of personal achievement by him suggests he is not a leader of his team. Ministers deliver to or break the Taoiseach at the end of their time in office. Varadakar is doing well on all fronts and small-minded nit pickers will only annoy themselves. Hammer did an excellent job in highlighting what really counts in the march of the nation. Utopia will have been reached when the Opposition have nothing about which to complain. In the meantime, let's be grateful that the country is on a sound footing. I know, I know that housing is slowly getting there and extra beds are gradually doing likewise. Save us repitition.

    "The country" won't be on a sound footing until we all have a roof over our heads that we can call our own, an income we can live on, and our hundreds of thousands of emigrants are back here (if they want to return) enjoying the same conditions.

    These lads won’t understand that logic Shannon,like their cohorts in the bullhorn and placard brigade, the negativity gene is deeply implanted.

    What these lads want is success without hard work, well paid jobs with no qualifications or skills,they criticize those who are doing well but ignore the hard work it took to get there.

    The game is up for these lads, all they have is platforms like this to whine and moan constantly.

    However those who get up early have seen through them.
