    It's still true, right?



    Self-obsessed Taoiseach using tax payers money to find the right time and best lies to get himself re-elected??? News like that never gets old.

    What I want to know is why this is being paid by the public purse. Surely it should be funded from the party's funds.

    Didn't Leo say he wanted an election held in the Spring.

Of course solving pressing issues such as homelessness, hospital waiting lists etc are of secondary importance to him. Doesn't it show the shallowness of his personality and FG policy's ?

    "Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s department is to spend at least €160,000 assessing the image of the Government and to survey how it is communicating with the public. It comes amid recent opposition criticism that the Taoiseach is more about spin than substance."

    Taoiseach to spend on reports assessing Government’s public image

    Hilarious. Leo criticised for being more concerned with spin than substance, and in response orders more spin!

    Leo Thatcher is the same fella who believes in handing out govt licenses and contracts to his crony's, facilitates tax cheating to chancers and spoofers, even having the state pay to fight the case for 13Bn tax thief's Apple etc. Couldn't be more Thatcherite.

    Honestly he's scum like thatcher - i lived in the north of england whilst thatcher did her best to destroy it,

    Absolutely right. The public, in case Leo hasn't realised it yet, is made up of a majority who don't support his Party. Yet he expects them to help fund the Fine Gael message / propaganda effort through state funds.

    There are enough wealthy FG supporters and donors to help pay for any research Varadkar wants to do that will have no material benefit for anybody other than himself.

    He's shaping up to be another useless primadonna.

    While it is unquestionably about FG as they are the government, it looks like a much broader brush on how Government works and is perceived. It also looks to be about the day to day stuff, not the Ministerial speeches. No bad outcome if future government administrations do that work a whole lot better, based on this "review".

    Exactly, like Ahern and then we were told in 2011 "Never again" sort of stuff. There's no end to the vanity of these fu*kers while families spend years in hotels, people sleep on the streets etc.

    Ahern defends €480 weekly make-up bill
