The other morning

 

Sir, – Leo Varadkar has said he wants to lead a party for “people who get up early in the morning”. Nicolas Sarkozy liked to say the same thing about “la France qui se lève tôt”. That was back in 2007. Has no-one else noticed Mr Varadkar’s borrowing of this distinctive phrase? – Yours, etc,

JEAN O’SULLIVAN,

Rauch, Paris.
