Politics should not mean accepting abuse

During my first week at the Seanad in 2015, Leinster House’s internal mail system received a letter addressed to me. Inside and on the back of a torn utility bill, in capital letters, were the words: “I hope you keep your legs crossed when you’re in Dublin.” Fortunately, although I witnessed a lot of abusive online activity, abusive email was rare. The letter writer was never caught.

was recalled after seeing a video of Leo Varadkar going for a jog in the capital last week. Taken last summer, it showed a couple of idiots shouting out the window of their vehicle, calling Tánaiste “a pr**k”. Varadkar’s response was commendable, he waved his hand back and said, “Have a nice day”. The driver replied “You damn w***er”.
