Twitter makes a meal of Leo
THE social media post, since withdrawn, accused An Taoiseach of receiving a ‘free meal’ with friends at the Kylie concert. It inspired online wags to imagine similarily bizarre situations a fictional Mr Varadkar might have blagged his way into. Conor Smith @conorsmith: I was in Boojum yesterday evening and saw Leo Varadkar in the queue ahead of me and he kept asking for the student discount until they gave it to him. Leon Thotsky @mikedolan_vevo: Can’t believe I saw leo varadkar at the self checkout in tesco yesterday ringing everything up as potatoes and stealing a fistful of blue tokens. Jambo @wild_manta: I was in a chipper in Galway last year, and Leo Varadkar came up to me, slyly grabbed one of my chips and ate it, saying ‘No one will believe you’. Then he denied me housing. Fiona Hyde @andgoseek: I was in The Academy last weekend and Leo Varadkar kept insisting to the door staff he was on the cheap list even though it had closed at 11pm. Eventually they just gave it to him. It’s a f**king disgrace Eve Belle @EveBelleSongs: Leo Varadkar just pushed me out of the way to get on the 46a, called me ‘a stupid poor’, tapped a child leapcard and then lay down across the back seat and started singing wonderwall by oasis at the top of his lungs – wasn’t a fan before, now I’m definitely not. Alan Maguire @alan_maguire: Look, I don’t know whether Leo Varadkar did or didn’t have a meal at a concert but what I do know is that having a meal at a concert is just about the most Fine Gael thing ever.
