    €5m would pay for 100 homes, 50 if you want to be extravagant.

    Not on board with this 'rough sleeper' terminology as if it's referring to a different category of human being. It's someone who is sleeping rough who could be anybody.

    Apparently Leo Thatcher's propaganda unit is going to now cost us €5 Million. As I said before, it just shows the shallowness of Varadkar and his politics.

    "Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has come under direct attack for opening a so-called “propanganda unit” costing €5m."

    I'm certainly not a fan of Howlin has written to the Standards in Public Office Commission over the Taoiseach’s new propaganda unit Leo Thatcher calls the strategic communications unit.

    Brendan Howlin writes to political standards watchdog over Leo Varadkar's 'spin unit'

    Was it usual government to have civil servants appearing in promotions for the work of the department? as Varadkar has been been doing with this https://www.irishtimes.com/news/poli...aign-1.3256899 and the SCU video/ads?

    Niall Collins brought up one of Leo's videos on Saturday with Claire Byrne back in October about Leo Varadkar pulling in an civil servant who looked uncomfortable to be in the video

    http://www.rte.ie/cspodcasts/media.m...52108_232_.mp3

    The video doesn't entirely reflect Niall Collins description

    you can see the video he referring to here, IDA women talks about the new jobs and she turns to walk off but is directed to remain standing with the Taoiseach as he talks abot the new jobs but then goes to talk about what else he was doing that day
