Wanted: A Taoiseach who earns our respect rather than yearns for our love

Leo Varadkar spent 25 minutes on the phone to the Egyptian President last week, discussing the case of Ibrahim Halawa, the young man who's now spent four years in prison after being arrested at a protest in Cairo in support of the Muslim Brotherhood leader.
What the Taoiseach did with the other 10,055 minutes in the week is anybody's guess.
He did take part in the Dublin City Triathlon last Sunday, before making his way to Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi final.
