Letters to the Editor

On his very first day, Leo Varadkar has insulted the hardworking people of Ireland by saying that he has no doubt that, only for Enda Kenny, the country as we know it would not be here today. What absolute and utter rubbish!

I'm afraid Mr Varadkar has got it all wrong; it is the hardworking taxpayers who deserve the credit - those who suffered crippling pay cuts and all the painful austerity measures imposed by Michael Noonan under Mr Kenny's approval.

It was also these same people who had to pay back the loans plus exorbitant interest to the glorified money lender, the IMF, to whom we had been forced to mortgage our country without any say from the ordinary citizens of Ireland.
