The Irish PM is a fool, but this latest tantrum exposes Brussels’ intentions to keep us in its grip

Liability Leo

IRISH Prime Minister Leo Varadkar is a bigmouth and a fool, but his latest bone-headed outburst has done us all a favour.

It has exposed beyond doubt both his crass naivety and the cynical deceit of the EU masters he cravenly obeys.

Imagine the cataclysmic self-harm of Ireland preventing planes from its biggest trading partner flying over it. And the impossibility of its own airlines avoiding UK airspace. It won’t happen.

Varadkar must believe that these grenades he brainlessly lobs into the Brexit negotiations help Brussels. He is not bright enough to realise how absurd and unstatesmanlike he looks.

But he let something else very revealing slip too.

Varadkar reportedly said that EU leaders have assured him no hard border or customs checks will ever be needed between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

That’s under ANY scenario, including a No Deal.

Since we will never build a hard border either, why is “avoiding” one still being discussed, let alone a huge sticking point?

Answer: It is a ruse, confected by a Brussels desperate to keep us in its grip.

A ‘non’ starter

IF you need further proof of Brussels’ ­hostility, how’s this?

There is nothing more Theresa May can compromise on, we need to leave the EU

Eurocrats yesterday tore apart Theresa May’s Chequers offer. Yes, the same offer already so over-generous it almost collapsed her Government.

The Sun has never been more gloomy about the chance of a deal. There is nothing more Mrs May can compromise on.

But Brussels is run by deluded bullies who apparently think they cannot lose.

Martin Selmayr, the German who is effectively in charge, dislikes Britain and insists any deal must be punitive.

The EU, while apparently negotiating with us, is also advising its members how to lure away our job-creating firms.

Parliament, and its Remainers, must not be cowed. They must back Britain over Brussels. No Deal wasn’t our choice. But the EU is pushing us into it and telling its members to be prepared.

Within eight months we must be fully ready too, economically and politically.

Streets of fear

THE huge surge in serious crime shames the supposed party of law and order.

It is no coincidence murders, rapes, robberies and knife attacks are soaring with police numbers at a 36-year low.

For years the Tories considered their necessary cuts to budgets safe enough. The evidence against is now irrefutable.

But more cash is not the only answer.

Many forces are appallingly led, obsessed with their image, with social media virtue-signalling and investigations driven by political correctness, all while ignoring the basics of keeping the public and their property safe.

Home Secretary Sajid Javid must secure more money and reverse this horrific trend.
