Harris Says Funny Jokes Not One Of Minister Flanagan’s Strong Points

Simon Harris says telling funny jokes is clearly not one of the Minister for Foreign Affairs’ attributes.

It’s after a leaked Whatsapp message from Charlie Flanagan suggested Harris wants out of the Department of Health over the weekend – Minister Flanagan has since clarified the remark saying it was tongue in cheek.

It follows days of speculation over when the Taoiseach intends to stand down as leader of Fine Gael.


Minister Harris says he’s not going anywhere yet.

Meanwhile, A Former Clare Fine Gael TD and Senator has suggested that some of those seeking a change at the top of the party have “jumped the gun.”

Madeline Taylor-Quinn believes Enda Kenny was always going to go at what he believed to be the correct time.
