Ireland desperate for EU to agree new deal with UK as Frost turns screw
In a desperate bid to get the European Union (EU) working on an agreement with Britain before Brexit, Ireland is turning up pressure by warning of its special relationship and fears for border security.
Ireland’s foreign minister Simon Coveney warned that his country will play hardball in future negotiations over trade deals if no new deal can be agreed upon between Britain and EU. He said there was “no question” about it insisting all sides would have to work together towards securing strong relations after both countries leave the union next year. Coveney also urged senior officials from the EU not just pay lip service but deliver real change when they meet at their summit later this month or face serious consequences saying he didn’t want any more fudges or kicking
