Former British PM calls for new referendum on Brexit

  • Leo Varadkar said the resignations of David Davis and Boris Johnson were internal matters for the British government

It is very encouraging that the Prime Minister came to Northern Ireland to listen and to understand the concerns of business, on maintaining a common rulebook over goods and agri-foods and how the UK Government can not simply "wash its hands" of the matter.

The EU's chief negotiator Michel Barnier questioned on Friday whether United Kingdom plans for a common rulebook for goods and agri-foods were practical and said the EU would not run the risk of weakening its single market.

Former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson read out a personal statement in Commons earlier in which he took a veiled swipe at Russian Federation, outlined his opposition to Theresa May's Brexit plan, and said "it's not too late to save Brexit".

On Saturday, May said the deal was a "principled and practical Brexit", warning the EU: "The clock is ticking".

"Agreement on them is necessary prior to us adopting a withdrawal agreement".

Repercussions range from new controls at the EU's outer border with the United Kingdom, to the validity of UK-issued licences, certificates and authorisations and to different rules for data transfers.

He said: "The margin is closing on these votes and we will keep at it".

Barnier said Britain shared the EU's desire for an ambitious trading relationship, a level playing field and a security partnership.

In a speech to politicians and business leaders in Belfast, May sought to turn the focus onto the European Union and the fate of the border between Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic, one of the main stumbling blocks in the negotiations.

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) said its policy chair Tina McKenzie had questioned the Prime Minister about the White Paper proposals following Mrs May's speech at Waterfront Hall, in which she also called for an urgent restoration of power-sharing.

Macron aide handed initial charges from May protest assault
Laurent Wauquiez, the head of the rightwing Republicans party, accused the government of "trying to camouflage a matter of state". Benalla's involvement in the beating is turning into Macron's biggest political crisis since taking office a year ago .

After quitting, former foreign secretary Boris Johnson singled out her treatment of the border as the biggest mistake of her negotiations with the European Union for a smooth exit from the bloc next year and risked leaving Britain in a "miserable, permanent limbo".

Equally, she said that a hard border between Northern Ireland and the Republic was "almost inconceivable".

"The economic and constitutional dislocation of a formal "third country" customs border within our own country is something I will never accept and I believe no British Prime Minister could ever accept", May said.

She said Mrs May rejected the accusations from Ms McDonald.

She said she re-iterated in the meeting this morning that the Irish border requires a bespoke solution and needs "an absolutely worse case contingency plan" - i.e. the backstop agreement.

Many Brexit or "Leave" campaigners feel they are losing ground to voices questioning the meaning of the 2016 vote.

They will also receive an update on negotiations from the European Commission's chief negotiator, Michel Barnier.

The EU has reacted with restraint in response to a new plan on Brexit, presented by Theresa May, the British Prime Minister.

"This visit will enable Mrs May to speak with people who live, work and travel across the much talked about Irish border on a daily basis", Foster said in an earlier statement.

Mrs May, who's just visited the Irish border, declared the European Union should "evolve" their position and not fall back on "unworkable" positions.
