Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I agree Varadkar was an economic neo-liberal, but he was a social liberal and a social democrat when compared to the USA. He defended Ireland's interests competently with respect to Brexit, dealt with Covid reasonably well, led a rapid economic recovery, and feel down only on long term infrastructural planning and development which has not exactly been a strength in any country in recent times. The rapid rise in the economy and population left the public housing, transport, healthcare, and childcare services under-developed, but even these are gradually being addressed despite some structural obstacles (such as lack of capacity in those sectors).

I know, but everyone is getting their hate on for him because he didn't fix all the domestic issues.  I'm just saying NI would have been better off with Varadkar than with anything that has slouched toward Downing Street in the last generation.  Or two.
