Varadkar defends Great Gael social media video that was erased following backlash
TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR has actually defended a video put out by the Great Gael social networks team that was consequently erased after a reaction online.
The video posted to Fine Gael’s Twitter account last night depicted Fianna Fail TDs running around Dublin city trying to find policies, set to Benny Hill music.
Varadkar said the video had set out to depict serious problems in a light-hearted way.
Talking to reporters in Dublin today, he stated: “You will get unfavorable commentary no matter what you installed, that is just the nature of social networks.
“The video was making a major point that Fianna Fáil has no major policies and the celebration that professes to wish to lead the next government is not using anything serious in terms of the economy, Brexit, health or housing.”
When asked why it was removed, he stated: “Because some people thought it was ridiculous and we want to make the very same point but possibly in a more major method.
“It was a funny video that was making a serious point in a funny method. Fianna Fáil has no policies. They are not a serious alternative. They have actually had 9 years to develop policies,” Varadkar said.
“We are a week into the election campaign and they have yet to highlight any severe policies in numerous meaningful locations that would in any way signal any modification or difference.”

party “and adopting negative marketing strategies, Varadkar stated:”No, not. We’re a really kind and caring party and we are the celebration that is absolutely dedicated to making our nation a better place.”I think a lot of individuals will identify the development the nation has actually made
in the last couple of years and we acknowledge that it is inadequate and we wish to construct on that after this election.”As is constantly the case in political debate– and all parties will do this– we will point out
the flaws and drawbacks and absence of policies from other celebrations. “We’re a week into this campaign and the main opposition celebration has actually had nine years to
create policies and we have yet to see them and produce alternative policies.”
