    I call on the taoiseach to clarify his remarks and help us refresh our memories. When did it seem like they had thought it through? Or even mused gently on the topic before being distracted by a pigeon?

    At a time when we need a determined Taoiseach we have a schoolboy in short pants. It’s embarrassing, and not going to end well.

      Helga has spoken for the people. We want a “determined” Taoiseach. What does that mean. Answers on a stamp.

    Poor old Verruca.
    Poncing about on a gay pride march with Justin Trudeau is one thing but trying not to look like a bog-trotter alongside the other EU leaders is another.
    He’s welcome to try to stall trade talks over the border but it will end in tears.Irish ones.

      for once agree entirely, just look at how we were treated during the crash, to EU we are no more relevant than Greater Manchester

      Boris Churchill will ensure they manage to bumble their way past us into that second round

      and then we are proper fupped

        Ireland lost most of its credibility when a French midget threatened the country into changing its mind over Lisbon 2.
        Then being forced to go cap in hand for the bailout and not blowing out the bondholders sealed this country’s fate.
        Really,truly the Irish are seen as friendly but feckless drunks with politicians up to the necks in corruption,digouts and parish pump politics.
        Verruca is playing a dangerous game because the British will remain whose side he was on when the going got tough for Blighty and they may not be so generous next time the country goes bust.
        If he thinks Merkel and Macron will care a jot about Ireland in the future he has learned nothing from recent history.

    Sinn Fein should park their intransigence on the Irish language for the moment and should negotiate a substantial sum from the British government for their Catholic communities. Peace , job opportunity for the youth is what matters most in Ulster. I am sure SF would have a lot to offer on Brexit , more so than newcomer Leo.

    So now that Varadkar has cracked the problem, we await his announcement.
    Somehow though, I think it’ll be the usual guff. Probably with 2021 thrown in as that seems to be the goal year for everything FG.
