Ever since Enda Kenny announced his resignation back in May, the whole country has been ablaze with talks of who is set to be Ireland's newest Taoiseach.
Both Simon Coveney and Leo Varadkar have been in the running, with a nation divided as to who would do a better job.
Leo was announced as our new Taoiseach-elect last night, with the country split as to whether this is a good thing or not...

Fair play. Give women rights over their bodies and please don't criminalise the poor, go after the Anglo lads who caused real damage

Does anyone know Leo Varadkar's sexual orientation? Nobody has mentioned it and it's the crucial metric I judge world leaders on.

Celebrating Leo being the first gay Taoiseach is akin to if Le Pen won and everyone celebrated the first female French president.

If Leo wins, does this mean Ross O'Carroll-Kelly will be Taoiseach?

re: Leo Varadkar as Taoiseach, I would just like to say that it shouldn't be lauded as a moment of victory for the queer community

Fair play to Leo Varadkar. He's proved that anyone in Ireland can be Taoiseach, no matter how little they care about unemployment.
