Leo's new suit

•Isn't it just dandy? Those of us still hoping that we had replaced an out-of-touch government with one that had its finger on the pulse of the nation crashed back to earth yesterday.

While many people are struggling to keep warm and fed, we were treated to words of wisdom from Leo Varadkar urging people to make "purchases" before the VAT hike. He intends to replace a "few suits" and a "computer" now so as to avoid the pending tax increase. What an insensitive, detached klutz.

It remains impossible, it seems, to keep the words "politician" and "avoiding taxes" out of the same sentence.
