British MP speaking about Irish politics needs a serious lesson about Ireland
Oh dear, oh dear...
It's been an eventful day in the world of politics. This morning everything looked promising as Ireland prepared itself for a "promising statement" from Leo Varadkar.
Then, the wheels fell off and all hell broke loose.
The deal that appeared to have been agreed this morning was no longer a runner in the afternoon, and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar took to a press conference to announce his surprise and disappointment at the turn of events.
Varadkar has suggested that a deal had been agreed with the UK over the Irish border this morning but that the UK then backtracked on the agreement.
To cap off what has been a frustrating day for negotiations, you get an insight into the knowledge of Irish politics from British MP Bernard Jenkin speaking on Sky News.

Yep, you heard all of that correctly, former Taoiseach of Northern Ireland... and that's before we even get to this.
