Leo makes a tweet of him­self

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Living - - FRONT PAGE - EILIS O’HANLON

It’s getting to the stage when some­one close to the Taoiseach re­ally needs to think about stag­ing an in­ter­ven­tion and wrestling his Twit­ter ac­count away from him. It was bad enough a wee while ago when Leo started de­fend­ing his Brexit pol­icy on­line against some ran­dom Brit with about 20 fol­low­ers. This week he went fur­ther, tak­ing to so­cial me­dia to deny ru­mours on Face­book that he got a free meal at the Kylie Minogue con­cert, in­sist­ing it was only drinks and that he paid for them, adding: “I have the re­ceipt to prove it too.”

Here’s hop­ing Varad­kar doesn’t throw it away. Fu­ture his­to­ri­ans would hate to miss a chance to study such an im­por­tant doc­u­ment. And to think some peo­ple think Don­ald Trump’s tweet­ing is mor­ti­fy­ing...

To be hon­est, there’s a much deeper is­sue at stake here — namely, shouldn’t want­ing to go to a Kylie gig au­to­mat­i­cally bar any grown-up from be­ing in charge of the coun­try any­way? We’ve got to have some stan­dards.
