To all the single ladies out there, the hottest property from Sgt Enda's Lonely Hearts Club Band is free and available. He's 31, from Castleknock, and is seeking a like-minded partner for cutting debate and some, ahem, thrusting political discourse.
"I am single and live alone," confessed Leo Varadkar during a debate on the civil partnership bill. "Being single, I pay a lot of tax," he declared. Leo had worked out he'd pay €7,000 less in tax per year, if he married someone earning less than €25,000.
"It seems to be somewhat unfair that as a single person I am essentially paying more tax to subsidise other married people who may earn more than me," he protested.
Let's get him on to Blind Date ASAP . . . to relieve him of his tax burden.
