Latest Brexit updates as PM’s plan to defy Queen emerges

Leo Varadkar, the Irish prime minister, has said the position of the British government on Brexit is causing “great difficulty” in reaching a deal.

 

Speaking in the Irish parliament, Mr Varadkar said: “Part of the difficulty at the moment though is the position of the UK government is that Northern Ireland must leave the EU customs union and must be part of the UK customs union no matter what the people of Northern Ireland think.

 

“That’s their position at the moment and that’s one that is a great difficulty for us because the position of the British government is that the UK must leave the European Union and Northern Ireland must come out of the customs union, whether they like it or not.

 

“That creates huge difficulties for us because we want there to be a deal that respects the wishes of the people of Northern Ireland, and indeed the people in this Republic too.”
