In their face-to-face meeting in Dubin today, Taoiseach (Irish PM) Leo Varadkar told Boris Johnson that leaving the EU without a trade deal would be disastrous.

It’s notable that it’s again been repeated that the EU has not received any proposals since Johnson became PM in July.

Meanwhile, Johnson attempted to spread the blame and claimed a no-deal Brexit would be a failure that both the British and Irish governments would be responsible for.

Boris Johnson is already refusing to accept responsibility and is attempting to cast blame on others for his projected failings.
