“While I Have Endless Patience, Some Of My Colleagues Have Lost Patience”

Taoiseach leo Varadkar and EU’s Brexit chief negotiator Michel Barnier this afternoon

This afternoon.

Brussels, Belgium

Speaking today, Mr Varadkar said: “There’s very much a strong view across the European Union that there shouldn’t be any more extensions.

“While I have endless patience, some of my colleagues have lost patience, quite frankly, with the UK – and there’s enormous hostility to any further extension.”

He suggested he could only see an extension being agreed to allow for something like a general election or second referendum in the UK.

The Taoiseach added: “What won’t be entertained is an extension for further negotiations, or further indicative votes – the time for that has long since passed.”

    Name and shame Leo – who has lost their patience? I’ll never vote for an impatient politician, it’s a rule I have.
    I’m also off to a workshop on patience next week – I can’t wait!

      Reminds me of a joke:

      I went for premature ejaculation counselling last Tuesday – but it seems I was a day early.

    Nice to know Saint Leo is perfect and never, ever loses patience with anyone ever.

    He is the textbook definition of the term ‘smarmbag’.

        1. Boj

          Well, if I may, ‘smarm’would suggest intelligence and intent, where as ‘gonk’ seems to veer more on the stupidity, absent minded side of the spectrum. Whether they be bags or balls…?…in the words of the great Roy Orbison, is a mystery to me…

          1. millie st murderlark

            Oh, yes. Yes that will do very nicely.

            Leo is undoubtedly a smarmbag. Unlike say… Michael Healy Rae, who gives an awful bang of gonk.

            I like this a lot.

      Leo didn’t show much patience with Gino recently, or can you be pig-ignorant and patient at the same time.

      1. Al Bin Man

        That’s because he’s the same kind of empty suit Tory as the UK variety, it’s like looking in the mirror and comes naturally to him

  3. Jeffrey

    Someone tell Leo to be a good boy and sit down, he doesnt decide anything in this saga.

  4. Stan

    Makes a change from endless patients on trollies when he was – notionally – in Health an’ anyway

    If they didn’t lay off their sub-editors that caption could have read lorem ipsum instead of this sdjgh nonsense.

    the Tories aren’t willing to cut a deal, it’s not what they want, they’re simply using Brexit as a way to attack party colleagues and create power shifts and as a way to further division between opposing parties. It’s just a dumb political game for them, with no regard for the realities real people will face.

  7. GiggidyGoo

    Gas the way he thinks the EU boys are ‘colleagues’ Caesar thought he had colleagues too.

    Why is nobody talking about this clip from the recent BBC documentary Brexit: Behind closed Doors. We hear from Varadkar how United the EU is with Ireland and Brexit.

    This is the real EU and the incompetent clowns in the Irish civil service and the political scrotes in Government lead us blindly into it.

    Watch footage of Michel Barnier and Guy Verhofstadt’s plot to “isolate” and “use Ireland” in Brexit talks.
