People Aren’t Happy About Leo Varadkar’s Princess Diana Tweet

James Fenton

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week you’ll know that yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of the death of Diana, Princess Of Wales. 

Many people saw the occasion as an opportunity to reflect on the untimely death of a young mother and hero to millions around the world. 

Our own Taoiseach Leo Varadkar was one of those people as he took to Twitter to state that he remembers the events of August 31 1997 very well. 

All well and good but the timing of our leader’s tribute hasn’t gone down well at all after the news emerged that two homeless people have died in Ireland over the past 24 hours. 

It’s fair to say Leo is facing quite the backlash.
