Leo Varadkar refuses offer to volunteer and help homeless this Christmas
When asked if he would consider showing leadership on this by volunteering on Christmas Day, he said no
Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has refused an offer to volunteer and help the homeless this Christmas.
Mr Varadkar did admit that homelessness and the housing crisis are the most important issues of the day and of the highest priority for his Government.
But when the Irish Mirror asked if he would consider showing leadership on this by volunteering on Christmas Day, he said no.
Instead he said he will be doing something else that he would like to keep private.
Mr Varadkar said: “Well, I’ll be doing something on Christmas Day, but it’s not related to homelessness.
“I’ll talk about that some other time.”
He added: “But I will certainly be acknowledging on Christmas Day the fact that for a lot of people it’s not going to be a very pleasant day and for a lot of people it’s going to be a day of work, because a lot of people need to work on Christmas Day for lots of different reasons and we’re very grateful that they do.
