After his comments, ex-deputy chairman of the Northern Ireland Conservative and Union Party, Gary Hynds, claimed Varadkar had done damage to UK-Ireland relations. He said in a tweet that the damage Leo Varadkar has done and continues to do to the relations between the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland should not be underestimated.
He is an absolute disgrace. After former adviser to Prime Minister, Dominic Cummings, said the UK had always intended to renegotiate the Northern Ireland Protocol, Mr Varadkar claimed the comments were alarming He also questioned how, if the comments are true, the UK Government could be trusted during future trade negotiations. Mr Varadkar told RTE: Those comments are very alarming because that would indicate that this is a government, an administration which acted in bad faith and that message needs to be heard all around the world.
If the British government doesn t honour its agreements, it doesn t adhere to treaties that it signs, then that has to apply to everyone else too. Surely the message must be delivered to all nations around the world that this is a British government that doesn t necessarily follow its word and doesn t necessarily honour the agreements it makes. And you shouldn t make any agreements with them until such time as your confidence grows that they keep their promises and honor things, for example, like the Protocol. In a bombshell revelation, Mr Cummings claimed that UK Government had always intended to ditch the Protocol. What is the best Brexit option if we play hardball?

Our priorities means e.g getting Brexit done is 10000 x more important than lawyers beating international law in negotiations with people who break international law all the time.
