Ireland 'never believed Brexit would happen' - former Irish diplomat

Ray Bassett, former Irish Ambassador to Canada, Jamaica and Bahamas, has suggested the country's Government never believed Britain would see Brexit.

He said then Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar and current foreign Minister Simon Coveney believed the EU would be able to overturn the referendum from June 2016.

Mr Bassett said: "I'm quite convinced, in fact, they did say it to me, that at the early stages Ireland was absolutely convinced that Britain... that the Brexit referendum, the results of that would never be carried out.

"Because there was such a history of European Union being able to overcome these local democratic outcomes.

"So the view was and I heard it from themselves directly that, you know, Ireland would work with the sort of 'responsible' party in London, in other words, the remainers in London.

"To kind of thwart Brexit and that was the whole thrust of their programme."

Macron hates Britain more than he cares about human lives, says Carole Malone

In a piece for the Express she writes: "His blistering hatred of this country seems to have unhinged him.

"In the past 22 months he has done everything in his power to punish Britain for daring to leave the EU."

"He has refused point blank to co-operate on everything from exports to vaccinations and his public trashing of our AstraZeneca jabs created a vaccine hesitancy in France that has cost lives.

"But worse has been the vile people trafficking. And while those smugglers are scum, they can only do what they do because France lets them.

"Just hours after the first bodies of those migrants were pulled from the water, this vengeful, two-bob Napoleon had the cheek to tell Boris not to exploit the tragedy.THIS from the man who has been so determined to make Brexit look like a failure he politicised this crisis and these desperate refugees to do it."

UK fishing boss erupts at 'highly belligerent' France in licence war

Barrie Deas, chief executive of the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations (NFFO), the trade organisation representing British fishermen in relation to European fishing regulations, has been left furious by France's conduct in the ongoing row.

He told Express.co.uk: "There seems to be many points of friction currently between France and the UK.

"The licensing issue is something that should be resolved at the technical level.

"That it was escalated by highly belligerent language from France owes much to French domestic politics and that the French seem to have convinced themselves that the TCA (Trade and Cooperation Agreement) represents the status quo, when it does not."

Fears Sturgeon could exploit Lord Frost's Brexit talks for IndyRef2

The DUP's Sammy Wilson has warned Nicola Sturgeon will be keeping a close eye on how negotiations over Northern Ireland in the Brexit deal are progressing.

Mr Wilson added Boris Johnson should trigger Article 16 of the Northern Ireland Protocol to stop the SNP launching IndyRef2.

He warned if Lord Frost caved on his red lines in negotiations with the EU, separatists such as Ms Sturgeon would use it as a push for Scottish independence.

He told Express.co.uk: "If he's prepared to cut Northern Ireland loose, then I think Scottish nationalists will work on the basis of what do we have to do to make him come to the conclusion 'they're too much trouble, how do we get rid of them too'."
