    Varadkar spends an additional 160k on media spin

    Just to show how Varadkar is more about putting out fake news and information, he's spending €160k on media spin when already he has three communications sections in his department, his press office, an information service, and the strategic communications unit. 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."

    And this is more of the shyte to expect from the scumbag, gobbing off to IBEC that a “better life” is not something that is handed down to people. "It’s not something that can be handed down by someone else." The same fella who supported handing down to the banksters for €64 Billion, handed down govt licenses and contracts to his crony's, give as facilitates tax cheating to chancers and spoofers etc. Of course the Fianna Gaelers love him for that kind of Thatcherite waffle, but as I stated before, they may like think he's Mr Slick but it will bite them back on voting day.

    I think most people see success in a political career as being re-elected, but increasingly we're seeing a different model - nest feathering.

    O'Bama now getting $400k for a 30 "speech" to the self-same fellows he bailed out while in office, Cowen on the board of Topaz, etc.

    Varadkar can do a lot of favours over the next 12 months - his government have already recreated a Phoenix like property bubble from the ashes of the Celtic Tiger, Apple are €13bn+ richer than they would be if they paid tax, etc., etc. He only needs to squeeze one more election out to have another go at being Mr. Big.

    I think a new breed of politicians are looking for a quick career in politics then a slow and luxurious round of deferred appreciation from all their beneficiaries.

    Interesting link P. if you read it. And you read it that he's with IBEC and telling them that

    "He also repeated a previous pledge from the government to ban zero-hour contracts.

    An auto-enrolment pension system sees a portion of a worker’s pay automatically directed into a pension fund."

    Is that Thatcherite?

    "I think most people see success in a political career as being re-elected, but increasingly we're seeing a different model - nest feathering." The only ones with any well meaning are the Lefty's in SF, Indos4Change, PBP/Solidarity. While FG/FF/LP have been corrupt and sponging off the country for 6 or 7 decades.

    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.
