Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said that there will be no ‘scandal’ emerging after his exit from politics, after comparison was made to Nicola Sturgeon’s exit as First Minister of Scotland.

“I’m not and you know, I think the question you’re asking me is, is there some sort of scandal that’s about to break that I’m aware of and there isn’t is the straight answer to that,” he said.

“I understand the need for conspiracy theories and for speculation, but that’s simply not the case.

“That’s not to say that somebody isn’t going to throw some allegation at me tomorrow or next week or in a few months’ time that I’m not aware of now, that will probably be a load of rubbish, like most of them are, that people will then turn around and say, ‘Aha, that was the real reason’ but like, if you want to do that, fine, but that’s not the case.”

Mr Varadkar refused to comment on the expected confirmation of Simon Harris as his successor in the coming days – insisting that whoever is the new Fine Gael leader will have his “absolute, unequivocal” support.
