Taoiseach Leo Varadkar’s decision to have a public spat with the British government over Brexit may be understandable but it is not very wise.
His proposal that the future border between the European Union and the UK should not be on the island of Ireland but at ports and airports on either side of the Irish Sea is eminently sensible but unfortunately it has been a political non-runner from the start.
