The Sun has once again targeted Leo Varadkar on its front page

No punches pulled here.

The Sun has branded Leo Varadkar an 'airhead' on their front page on Friday morning, following his statements regarding Brexit.


While at a Brexit meeting in Kerry, Varadkar was asked whether flights could operate between Ireland and the UK in the event of Britian leaving the EU.

Varadkar replied that Britian couldn't have its cake and eat it too, saying: "The situation at the moment is that the UK is part of the single European sky. If they leave the EU they are not, and that does mean if there was a no-deal hard Brexit next March, the planes would not fly and Britain would be an island in many ways. If they want their planes to fly over our skies, they would need to take that into account."

"You can’t have your cake and eat it," Varadkar added.

"You can’t take back your waters and then expect to take back other people’s sky”.


This is in direct response to Theresa May cutting the Irish fishermen's access to British waters.

The Sun published the Taoiseach on their front page, with the caption 'air head'.


This isn't the first time that the tabloid has targeted the Taoiseach.

Eight months ago the paper published a picture of Varadkar on the front page with the caption 'Shut your gob and grow up', and only two weeks ago, the red top referred to him as 'gobby', 'pompous' and 'a snivelling stuck up'.
