Lise Hand: Leo the Lip left sheiken but not stirred by holiday hullabaloo
Gosh, but Leo Varadkar has a barefaced sheik. Even as yet another controversy roared to life over his rosy view of next week's Budget, the Minister for Transport, Tourism, Sport & Boo-Boos was shaking hands with sheiks in the Burlington Hotel yesterday at a reception to mark United Arab Emirates National Day.
It's entirely possible that the first thing which Enda Kenny types into Google search every morning is the trio of fearful words, 'Leo', 'Varadkar' and 'Controversy'.
For he's Leo the Lip, a chap born with a silver foot in his mouth. His pronouncements can make money-markets shiver and cause a stampede of frothing citizenry clamouring to talk to Joe.
