Leo Varadkar says there will always be a seat at the EU table for the UK if Brexit does not work out

Mr Varadkar has made clear there will always be a place for the UK at the EU table if Brexit does not work out well.

Mr Varadkar said he was "ambitious" about the future EU/UK relationship but warned there was also a need for "realism". "Time is short and a negotiating mandate will be agreed at the EU Council in March, but we're up for it," he said. "And we agree that it's important as ever that we enter the next phase united and in a positive spirit, and we do."

Asked about the forthcoming General Election, Mr Barnier insisted a change in government would not impact his working relationship with Ireland.Mr Varadkar and Mr Barnier, along with their teams, are discussing the upcoming negotiations on the future relationship between the EU and the UK, including on trade, days before Brexit.

— Paul Cunningham January 27, 2020 "The European Union is a union of 27 member states. The UK is only one country. And we have a population and a market of 450 million people," he said. He said he had feared last year that the UK would leave the EU without a deal, but that a meeting he had with Mr Johnson in October had been a breakthrough.
