i remember reading one or two vaguely self-congratulatory articles years ago about how the irish were supposedly socially conservative, yet we were completely OK with the leader of our country 'living in sin' while still legally married to his previous partner. wouldn't be allowed in england, etc.
but i think there is a weird dichotomy in ireland where we switch between 'none of my business' and 'this is tearing society apart'. maybe that's universal though, and the dominance of the church here just highlighted it.
I guess this attitude will be tested this week.

We Dont Know Ourselves was named one of the New York Times books of the year this past week, we can't let Fintan's entire thesis down by cancelling Leo over this. Making a show of ourselves in front of the yanks!

Leo is such a Thatcher lover that he'll probably roll Matthew out for a Tory MP style mea culpa "I have let my [significant other] down but I am working to rebuild trust and we are working through it" presser, as opposed to what he should actually do and tell people to fuck off and mind their own business.

The man is an arsehole with terrible opinions on how the world should work but this is bullshit. A version of the Icelandic PM caught dancing on video scandal for the hates the gays crowd.

Put "Leo Varadkar" into twitter search.

But the short version is that theres some video of him kissing a young lad in a club, and people can't decide which aspect to get worked up about the most, and whether the entire thing is faked or not.
