Mr Varadkar told RTE television: "I hope Dominic Cummings is speaking for himself and not for the British government.

"But those comments are very alarming because that would indicate that this is a government, an administration, that acted in bad faith and that message needs to be heard around the world.

"If the British government doesn't honour its agreements, it doesn't adhere to treaties it signs, that must apply to everyone else too.

"At the moment they're going around the world, they're trying to negotiate new trade agreements...

"Surely the message must go out to all countries around the world that this is a British government that doesn't necessarily keep its word and doesn't necessarily honour the agreements it makes.

"And you shouldn't make any agreements with them until such time as you're confident that they keep their promises, and honour things, for example, like the protocol."

You ask yourself the thinking behind it,simply why? The obvious and only answer is to win a general election.

Ok,so they did this to win an election based on breaking up an international agreement?

Isn't that just telling the electorate a pack of lies and also a pack of lies to the people we are having an international agreement with?

Fook me,is that the standard you are happy with?

Is it any wonder your country is going down the pan?

If it pees off the Irish elites, then we need more of it.

Shocked Clonakilty white pudding in a lot of places in UK now WD,Ocado and tesco also do Cully and Sully soup,£1.75, the smoked haddock chowder is grand but the vegtable soup is excellent.

Foinavon/Lfc, you so badly need someone even like Irish not so elites,an honest Sturgeon,a straight talking Mark Drakesford, instead you got the stooges,isn't it always someone else,don't the average Brit fall for that each time?

The Engleesh have a tradition of cap doffing and forelock tugging. Many wish to be ruled by their betters. They have bought into the lie that they are worthless scum and the Eton Rifles know what is best for them. They cheer the fact that The Labour Party, The Party created to protect their interests is in dismay. What they fail to realise is that this will be sorted out on the streets.

I have tried the Clonakilty white pudding. Jolly marvellous. I am not over keen on soup. We had a cook when I was a child that made terrible soup and I have barely recovered since although I have a liking now for  butter bean and chorizo but on your recommendation I will try the chowder

I'm not a soup person either but would have them, Mrs lapsy always insisted on the Cully when she goes to Ireland,a good bread makes it enjoyable anyway.

I might try lighting a candle for the cap doffers and forelock tuggers this evening(7.00pm) if a few here do it you never know, it may be too late in a few months time as you say.

My brother told me a story about the soup takers. Is it true?
Report lapsy pa October 16, 2021 2:05 PM BST
Yes, i won't be sure of the facts and no doubt open to correction,however i think protestant soup kitchens involved some kind of commitment to protestism. The Quakers also did soup kitchens and afaik they were done with no catch only to genuinely help.

I have absolutely nothing against ordinary Irish people Lapsy, like everyone else I know they just want to go about their daily business. We have a thriving Irish community here in South Birmingham and I used to go to the dog track with a group of lads of Irish descent before that particular pleasure was closed off by greedy developers. No, my displeasure is directed against certain elites, you can guess who they are.

I know you haven't Foinavon and i have a lot of respect for your learned self, i am pisted off with this protocol saga,it is just a bucket of lies but at least it is generally seen that way by most.

You’ve been wrong about the protocol - as demonstrated by the changes

I hope i've been wrong,it was a great EU move, it is going to look silly now if reneged.

As long as you realise the protocol had to change it wasn’t practical or workable
I know that may not be of concern to the south of Ireland or the EU - tough
Report Foinavon October 16, 2021 2:51 PM BST
Thanks Lapsy, the sentiment is mutual. The protocol situation will be sorted eventually and probably quietly. In the meantime the politicians have to do their posturing and preening but the province shouldn't be allowed to descend into anarchy again and I suspect there is a danger of it.
Report lfc1971 October 16, 2021 2:53 PM BST
Sensible changes have been made . It’s for the British government to decide if it goes far enough.
Report Foinavon October 16, 2021 3:14 PM BST
The Belfast Agreement is immutable and provides for the electorate of the province to freely decide their own future. It is even-handed to both communities which is not necessarily reflected in the way the protocol is interpreted.
Listening to Sammy Wilson the other day, the chief gripe of the DUP is having to accept EU laws being handed down without consultation which he contends makes Stormont redundant. I suspect this is an area along with the CJEU oversight where the EU will not compromise.

It's true, the British constitution, as such, won't be effecting the EU.

The important thing is that trade can move freely and with little or no restrictions between GB and NI
The ecj is neither here nor there - Anything the eu court says in the future can be ignored if it goes against British interests

I've never been a tea drinker Foin.

Pa, the wife has to go to Dunnes stores, they do a simply better own brand range

of yoghurt in a little glass and for about a quid.

It is  artisan really, comes creamy light sharp and on the bottom can be lemon or blackcurrant etc.

It's from Wexford, and I promise it is 5 minutes of heaven.
