It seems that Leo isn't the only Irish politician with a Mr Men mug

Simon Harris has taken to Twitter to reveal he is the proud owner of a Mr Men mug just like Taoiseach Leo Varadkar.

Leo has previously perplexed social media users with his Mr Taoiseach mug based on the series of children's books Roger Hargreaves. It now seems that he isn't the only person in Leinster House with this kind of merchandise as Health Minister Simon Harris revealed this morning.

Harris posted a picture of a 'Mr Health Minister' mug and the only question left is does every TD have one of these? It's hard to imagine a sleepy Simon Coveney sipping a brew from Mr Tanaiste mug as he starts his day, to be fair.

People have been quite complimentary about Simon's mug in the comments but the main reason he was posting was to remind people to stay at home and 'finish the job' of defeating Covid-19. In a later tweet, Harris added the following: 'I get it; some people look at what might be possible from 18th May & think its ok to just start that from now. Bottom line is: it’s not. It’s dangerous. Every day counts. The reason these restrictions are in place until then: to save YOUR life & keep your loved ones well.'

We'll sip to that.
