Leo Varadkar continually told the Dáil that our “eviction ban” was a winter eviction moratorium similar to that in other countries. So we decided to fact check his claim with our friend and regular tortoise shack contributor in Helsinki, Finland, Dan Nickstrom. Needless to say the facts did not support the Taoiseach’s claim. We also discuss why your electricity prices are more than twice of Dan’s, the rise of far right culture wars in countries previously held up as bastions of social democracy and the scary electoral success some are having with these “issues.” A great chat.
