Leo Varadkar would like to do a deal with Sinn Fein if he was let – and only the pundits and his party are in denial about it.

The pundits totally missed the Taoiseach’s courtship of Sinn Fein which I spotted six months ago and have chronicled since.

Breathlessly trying to catch up, they keep repeating the mindless mantra that both Varadkar and Martin would do a deal if the “numbers are right”.
