Strong Irish economy vulnerable to Brexit

GETTYThe UK has proposed a time-limited backstop

Referring to the UK's imminent departure from the EU, Mr Juncker told the Oireachtas that there is no deal as good as membership of the EU.

The strength in opinion carried across political divides.

On a visit to Dublin, Mr Juncker said fellow European Union member states would not let Ireland be "isolated" on the impasse, insisting the demand for a resolution was a Europe-wide demand.

The BIC brings together representatives of the Irish and British governments, the devolved administrations in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales and the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey crown dependencies.

This will see the UK retain parts of the EU's customs union in the event of a wider UK-EU agreement finding no solution to the issue; but Brexiteers had become concerned as to whether the proposal would truly be "time-limited", as promised.

The Irish government issued a statement last night saying Mr Varadkar's meetings with the Scottish first minister and Welsh first minister will focus on the implications of Brexit.

Across Great Britain, 62 per cent of respondents said Brexit negotiations were proceeding too slowly, with 30 per cent blaming the delays on "politicians in Britain who want a soft Brexit or to stop Brexit altogether".

European leaders meet in Brussels next week but a deal is not expected to be struck on the divorce's implications for the 300-mile border with its multiple crossing points until at least another European Council summit in the autumn.

He said: "Working together is exactly what people all across the United Kingdom want to see their respective governments doing".

At the back, the smartphone will come with a rear dual setup with a 16MP primary shooter coupled with 20MP secondary shooter. Qualcomm's Snapdragon 845 takes center stage, with the chipset paired with 8 GB of RAM and a healthy 256 GB of storage .

"Mr Juncker's claim that "Ireland is not alone" is false security for the country which would be most severely impacted by a no deal Brexit", said DUP deputy leader Nigel Dodds.

I am strongly against any temptation to try to isolate Ireland and not to conclude a deal on Ireland.

Barnier will present the state of play of the negotiations to the European Council on June 28 and 29.

"The Withdrawal Agreement without a backstop is of no use to us whatsoever". The EU says no substantial progress has been made in negotiations going into next week's summit.

Later, Mr Juncker received an honorary degree from the National University of Ireland. "This is a selfish interest".

Brexit talks are now at an impasse over the "backstop" - the fallback arrangement if negotiations over a future trade deal between Britain and European Union fail to solve the Irish border question.

"The withdrawal agreement must include a legally binding backstop so that there can not be a hard border on the island of Ireland in the future", Varadkar said., adding "a backstop cannot have an expiry date".

But there will be no withdrawal agreement without a fully operation backstop.
