Leo Varadkar wants united Ireland in his lifetime and make it ‘warm place’ for loyalists | World | News

Asked how he feels about the current Brexit impasse, Mr Varadkar said Britain leaving the EU is only stage one of the process, and compared the proceedings to a divorce.

“There is the sense that we will get a deal. They will ratify it and they will leave the European Union, but then the next thing starts, which is negotiating a new relationship,” he said.

“What we’re doing at the moment is a kind of divorce. Members are deciding, making sure that the kids are looked after, deciding the financial settlement that type of thing.

“The next step then is, how do we get on with each other after divorce because we’re still going to need to have a friendship of some sort.

“So, it just moves on to the next phase, but the most important thing in the first phase was just to protect those really important things like making sure that wasn’t the border between North and South and people’s rights are protected and that people can still travel freely between Britain and Ireland.”
