''I want'' is too strong a phrase.
''I'd settle for'' is perhaps more appropriate.

That's the kind of top-class pedantry this country is missing in its leader.

Perhaps Michael Martin or Francis Fitzgerald, I'd say Enda is gone, he should have gone off to Europe to stabilise stuff there for Angela Merkel, he would have been better than Jean Claude Junker and his tax schemes for Luxembourg.

But Coles said you were a Fine Gaeler :wink: And Fine Gaelers love Leo

Only for you, out of the current Dail who do you want as Taoiseach ?

I think the Sindo are going to make a headline out of this Thread on Sunday. "According to a private poll on a Fine Gael leaning property website 'We Want Leo !'"

There's no way Middle-Ireland will accept a single gay man with an "active" social life as Taoiseach, despite the media's narrative of this suddenly becoming a magic rainbow land. If he had a long-term partner/spouse that people got used to first I could see it happening in 5 or 10 years-a majority of the public would even take them to heart.

Can we trust these voting machine. What if the Russians are watching? My bet is Simon is the most likely Russian stooge

Why the quotes around "active"? Is he entitled to a sex-life? I think you're far behind the curve with regard to attitudes in Ireland.

I've never warmed to Coveny. Heard him speak recently and it was all straight out of My First Public Speaking Book.

Of course that's the wrong reason to pick one but I know very little about the policies of either.
