Varadkar will go down as one of the Taoiseachs in our history

Leo Varadkar, who today announced his shock departure as Taoiseach and leader of Fine Gael, will go into the history books as one of the leaders of this country.

DTTN salutes Varadkar’s many great achievements in office such as [insert something good here-Ed] and [Anything at all? Surely there must be something – Ed].

Many luminaries of Irish society have taken to social media noting that Varadkar was indeed Taoiseach from 2017 to 2020 and again from 2022 to today.

The man himself had this to say on what was sure to have been an emotional occasion for someone:

“Completing Taoiseach is one of my great achievements, up there with completing Football Manager and acquiring a wardrobe just for socks.

Some have called me Thatcher in a suit, but there’s more to me than that. I sometimes wear business casual, and shorts in summer.

My decision is both personal and political, but mainly because my party is unelectable with me at the helm. I look forward to my legacy being romanticised by the Irish media while I sail away on the private gravy train.”

DTTN wishes Varadkar all the best in his future endeavours and looks forward to celebrating our next Fine Gael overlord.
