Brexit: Nigel Dodds tells Leo Varadkar to ‘tone down his rhetoric’

On Tuesday night, Mr Varadkar acknowledged a no-deal scenario would be a "real dilemma".

Mr Varadkar's claims were condemned as "reckless and irresponsible" by Sinn Féin president Mary Lou McDonald.

The risk of no deal had "significantly increased", she said.

Britain's main business lobby has warned of disruption to the economy and delays for cross-border trade if Britain leaves the European Union without a transition deal.

In Westminster, opponents of the backstop fear it will not just be a temporary measure if not future trade deal is agreed. However, the devil is in the details and the support for May is said to only be if the Irish backstop is specifically time-limited.

Mr Varadkar said: "They don't exist and nobody has been able to show them to me".
