Irish PM ‘now absolutely convinced’ Johnson wants Brexit deal after talks


Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar is “now absolutely convinced” the UK wants a Brexit deal, which is “possible” by 31 October, following talks with Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Mr Johnson and his Irish counterpart met at Thornton Manor on the Wirral, Merseyside, for what their offices had billed as a “private meeting” ahead of next week’s summit of EU leaders in Brussels.

Speaking after their talks, Mr Varadkar refused to give details of their meeting – or what proposals were discussed – but offered an upbeat assessment.

“I had a very good meeting today with the prime minister and our teams together – very positive and very promising,” he told reporters at Liverpool’s John Lennon Airport.
