Fionnuala O’Leary: I'd pity the lioness who ends up in Leo's lair

LEO Varadkar may be licking his wounds today after his mauling from Irish women, but at least that's all he's got to be worried about. God help the lucky lioness who Leo eventually ends up with if his comments on working mums are anything to go by. It just beggars belief that a public representative and minister can be so out of touch.

Taoiseach Enda Kenny attempted to quell the roar of exhausted working parents in the Dail yesterday, but the damage has already been done.

The fact that one of the youngest members of cabinet can have such a lack or foresight or understanding of the pressures faced by working parents is incredible.
