Leo the Leak has the full Support of his Party FF, the Question is, Where is Cowen? Where is Calleary? And we must ask where are the rest of the FF SHEEP Backbenchers? Would Leo do it for them…….? No. Simon Harris has now it appears told Garda Detectives he was Asked to Leak the Government Documents? Where are we going with yet another fiasco?

On November 2 last year, the day before Leo Varadkar apologised in the Dáil for leaking a confidential Government document to a friend, a woman who does not wish to be identified filed a complaint to An Garda Síochána alleging the Tánaiste had breached the Official Secrets Act and the Criminal Justice (Corruption Offences) Act.

Her complaint was based on a Village magazine article published the previous Saturday, October 31, outlining how Varadkar had in early April 2019 sent a copy of an agreement between the Government and the Irish Medical Organisation (IMO) on a new GP contract to Dr Maitiú Ó Tuathail – who was then president of the IMO’s rival organisation, the National Association of GPs (NAGP).

The Village article included screen grabs of text messages Ó Tuathail exchanged with Varadkar and separate group texts with fellow NAGP members – including a picture of the document, which was marked “confidential/not for circulation”.
