Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said he would sooner “bring back the wolves than let Sinn Féin into government”.
Making a speech at the annual Fine Gael presidential dinner last night, Varadkar said: “I’d sooner bring back the wolves than let Sinn Féin into government.”
The Taoiseach used his speech as a rallying call to party members, stating that “when the next election comes I believe we can win it. In fact, I am sure of it even though it may not become apparent until the last week or ten days of the election campaign”.
These comments come as an expected general election will occur in 2020.
