Johnson tells Varadkar no-deal Brexit 'would be a failure' - BBC News 4.5
Brexit is expected to dominate a meeting between Boris Johnson and Taoiseach (Irish PM) Leo Varadkar in Dublin.

It is their first face-to-face meeting since Mr Johnson became prime minister in July.

A no-deal Brexit would be a "failure" that both the British and Irish governments would be responsible for, Boris Johnson has said.

He has ruled out asking the EU to delay the Brexit deadline of 31 October - but the Irish government said it would support another extension.

If 3 years wasn't enough time, how is a month a possibility?

Bojo looks like a man under a lot of pressure, while thinking “wtf have I got myself into?!”

All big talk. Proposals please Boris!

As an English person, I think Leo Varadkar's speech was considered, thoughtful and admirable, but Boris Johnson's words were despicable and embarrassing. I offer a huge thank-you to Ireland for standing by the Good Friday Agreement, whilst the UK has failed to. And I promise to perpetually argue vehemently against the lies of all the brexiteers that Johnson currently heads.

Boris is a man who has very much barged his way out of his depth.

We will be optimist on the beaches, we will be optimistic on the landing grounds and the ports, will be optimistic on the seas, will be optimistic with growing delusion and overconfidence in the air!!! We will be optimistic in the fields and in the streets, we will never surrender to reality!! And if this island or a large part of it were financially subjugated and starving, then in God’s good time, our empire, which we no longer have, will come to our rescue with trade deals of our wildest dreams. And if our imaginary empire lasts for a thousand years people will say, “ this, was their most deluded hour!!” -Boris de Pfeffel Johnson (Uproarious applause)

Boris clearly doesn't realise a "peaceful" border was only achieved 30 years ago. People still remember the fear

One statesman.
One naughty schoolboy completely out of his depth.

Agriculture is less than 2% of the Irish economy, yet it seems to be the only sector certain UK politicians ever talk about.

Where did Boris go to school Eton or Grange Hill?! He’s just rambling doesn’t come across very well esp against Leo who’s very assured

Author — Brian Malone


With a PM like that, Britain needs a lot of luck.

BoJo hasn't a clue and hopes someone else will offer a solution which he will then claim credit for.
E.U.'s strategy: "You got yourself into this - you get yourself out". Oh! and you can do it in 30 days (smiley face).

Bojo body language does not look great; he looks lost & not knowing what to do next.

A handsome, tall, articulate young doctor made Johnson look impotent. Very embarrassing for GB, I'm sure.

Boris: I know its very complicated, but trust me we can do it. Leo: How? You have never told us how. Boris: Trust me we can do it, I am sure, just trust me

Leo is much better public speaker. I can't believe Boris was a journalist.

Leo's face after the mastication remark was gas, he didn't look impressed! Boris seemingly forgetting that the EU position has been the same from day one, and that all the indicisivness and instability is on the UK side of the negotiating table.
