Political Tweetland has been busy over the past few weeks – despite the fact that our politicians have been on holidays.
We have had almost daily weather bulletins from Fine Gael Senator Jerry Buttimer, a record of all the meetings attended by his colleague Senator Paschal Donohue and every Labour member tweeting about the party conference at the weekend.
But the tweet of the week went to Fine Gael’s Leo Varadkar, who picked up on his party colleague Senator Fidelma Healy-Eames’ assertion that Labour were stealing Fine Gael policies.
“Fidelma is spot on,” Varadkar tweeted. “Labour are stealing our policies. First the Recovery Bank now the Constitutional Convention. Has anyone seen my blueshirt?”
