    no fan of brexit but his statement was almost akin Kenny’s “army guarding atms” level of stupid..

      Airhead Varadkar owned by the 19th century.

      UK officials claimed Mr Varadkar did not have the power to block UK aircraft – unless he was willing to pull out of an international agreement pre-dating the EU and involving 133 different countries.

      Prominent Brexiteer MP Jacob Rees-Mogg said: ‘Air traffic control continued between Russia and the Ukraine after Russia invaded the Crimea so this idea is just silly.

      ‘On the other hand most flights from the EU to America pass through our air traffic control so this rather lightweight Irish gentleman is proposing an absurd act of a masochistic nature. His words are those of an airhead.’

      Ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,hya,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha,ha ….

      Irish-owned Guido Fawkes owns Liability Leo.

      ” There is another agreement permitting British aircraft to fly over Ireland which the Irish government chooses not to publicise. The Irish Department of Defence and Department of Foreign Affairs with the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) have entered into a bilateral agreement with their British counterparts: the RAF, the Civil Aviation Authority, the Ministry of Defence, and the Foreign and Commonwealth Office that in the event of a terrorist hijacking, RAF jets would be scrambled to defend Ireland. Neutral Ireland has no supersonic military aircraft capability.

      Presumably this bilateral agreement permitting the RAF to conduct armed operations in Irish-controlled airspace in the event of a real-time or envisaged threat of a terrorist-related attack over the skies of Ireland, will not be torn up after Brexit. The Irish are Britain’s kith and kin, it is inconceivable that Brexit Britain would not come to their aid in the event of an Aer Lingus transatlantic flight being hijacked mid-Atlantic. Varadkar is bluffing for domestic consumption. “

        If Leo is so wrong then answer me these two questions:

        1) Why are the UK trying to negotiate a new Open Skies agreement with the US for when they fall out of EU/US one?

        2) Why did EasyJet open a subsidiary in Vienna and Ryanair apply for a British air operator’s certificate? (Here’s a clue: Airlines are grappling with a range of regulatory puzzles in the wake of Britain’s decision to exit the EU. These include agreeing a new legal basis for British airlines to operate flights between EU countries and ownership rules requiring carriers operating in the region to be majority controlled by entities in the bloc.

      The truth is emerging as the lie we have been told is exposed
      The problem is our leaders have lied from day one and people have swallowed it
      Can they be trusted?no

    “The situation at the moment is that the UK is part of the single European sky.If they leave the EU they are not, and that does mean if there was a no-deal hard [Sasamach] next March, the planes would not fly and Britain would be an island in many ways. If they want their planes to fly over our skies, they would need to take that into account.”

    There is nothing incorrect in what he said and there is no threat there nor is there anything about revenge or any of the other garbage the Sun is lying about to it’s knuckle dragging readers. The “our skies” being referred to are EU skies.

    Facts eh? Who needs ’em!

    1. MaryLou's ArmaLite

      He also said this in response to the UK saying they would block Irish fishing boats from UK waters.

      Selective reporting from that poo rag.

      Fair play Leo.

      1. donny

        And the news from the fishing fleet is so
        Trawlers that were fishing in the UKs waters are now moving into our waters to establish historical fishing so when brexit happens they simply move in and of course less fish for our fleets
        Fishermen in Donegal have been trying to get Coveney to do something about it but alas nothing
        Looks like post brexit our fishing fleet will have very lean times as Europe fleets that fished in British waters pillage our waters

    2. Frilly Keane


      and that’s what they were told
      even before the vote

      effin’ eejits

      now all British Airports will have to pay EU Sky inc to come and go

    3. donny

      Bertie delusional as usual
      Ever thought if this happened that all European airlines would be barred from the UKs airspace resulting in calamity

    The Sun doesn’t like uppity paddies so no surprise there. You are going to see a lot more of these sorts of headlines as Little England realises that Brexit is not just as simple as telling Johnny Foreigner to get stuffed.

  4. Ollie Cromwell

    Little England ? Johnny Foreigner ? Why not go for swivel-eyed loons and get the full Brexit bingo ?

      Hello pot, aren’t you a cute little thing?

      Have you met the kettle yet? You really should.

    2. SOQ

      You above all people clutching the pearls at terms like little England?

      I haven’t read one post from you which wasn’t intended to cause offence. John Taylor wouldn’t have a look in.

    I dedicate Chris de Burgh’s ‘Lonely Sky’ to Britain. Do I win a Golden Disc voucher?

      I saw a girl with a Golden Discs bag in her hand yesterday. Made me feel like it was the early 90s.

          It’s also the best-selling daily newspaper in Ireland after the Indo and IT.

            What part of ” It’s also the best-selling daily newspaper in Ireland after the Indo and IT. ” did you not understand.

            I mean,surely it’s not that difficult.

            Sun readers would understand …

            oh, right. so it’s like how england are world cup champions (after france, croatia and belgium).

          Mailable – definition of mailable by The Free Dictionary

          1. Brother Barnabas

            humour me so… how does the definition apply to your banal quip that the Sun posts newspapers to its readers?

            take your time (or make a cutting jibe that I’m gay)

          2. Robert

            Give the guy a break – it’s tough when you’re aperture into the world is Google translate English Russian

          3. Brother Barnabas

            you’ll need to read it again, pal… doesn’t fit

            definitely time to call me gay

    “Liability Leo. IRISH Prime Minister Leo Varadkar is a bigmouth and a fool, but his latest bone-headed outburst has done us all a favour. It accuses the Taoiseach of ‘brainlessly’ lobbing grenades to help Brussels in the negotiations.

    “Imagine the cataclysmic self-harm of Ireland preventing planes from its biggest trading partner flying over it. And the impossibility of its own airlines avoiding UK airspace. It won’t happen.

    “Varadkar must believe that these grenades he brainlessly lobs into the Brexit negotiations help Brussels. He is not bright enough to realise how absurd and unstatesmanlike he looks,”

    LIABILITY LEO – I like very much and will henceforth be using.

    1. ReproButina

      By all means take your lead from the Sun. A deliberately misleading, lying, racist rag is about your level after all.
