Public servants and stepping aside


Sir, – Taoiseach Leo Varadkar warns public servants to perform or step aside (“Varadkar warns public service chiefs to perform or step down”, News, September 18th).

This from the only person in the country who weekly expressed confidence in the Garda commissioner until the day she retired.

But don’t worry; Leo says he will back Ministers who feel somebody needs to be moved on.

Just so long as he doesn’t have to do it himself! – Yours, etc,
