Correct me if I’m wrong but wasn’t it Leo Varadkar who brought all this Fás stuff to light in the Dáil last year? And tonight we hear about Harney’s Haircut and before we learn of it, it seems Leo knew, based on his statement here:
Fine Gael Enterprise Spokesman Leo Varadkar TD has questioned whether any Government Ministers benefited from FÁS largesse by having gifts or services bought for them at taxpayers’ expense
The Fine Gael machine needs to capitalise on this more. More of this kind of thing and they’ll bring down the whole house of brown envelopes around Fianna Fáil and the Greens. Enda being boring and saying he’ll be Taoiseach won’t work. Learn some fake humility. I really do wonder at times about the Greens though. It seems once they get Fianna Fáil to use recycled brown envelopes they won’t act as their conscience.
Given Markham and Suzy noted FG need to concentrate not on haircuts but abuses of power, I should have pointed out that when I meant “more of this” it was in terms of blowing the lid off all these abuses in the public sector, not ignoring the millions squandered to concentrate on a haircut.
