Bar is set higher for the Taoiseach
I agree with Tom Mangan (Letters, September 21) that it is not as big a deal as it is made out to be that the Taoiseach "showed up on 'Morning Ireland' with a bit of a hangover".
I do not agree with him, however, when he says that the Taoiseach "has no time for" burnishing his image.
The Taoiseach is the most powerful politician in the country. He supported the previous Taoiseach, who as Tom Mangan says, did "spend thousands of taxpayers' money having himself beautified by make-up artists".
