Brexit branded ‘a mess’ by Commissioner Phil Hogan

Brexit has been branded ‘a mess’ by EU Commissioner Phil Hogan, and he says ‘it’s getting messier’.

The former Fine Gael Government minister’s been speaking in a number of papers this morning.

He’s told the Irish Independent that he hopes the EU can persuade the UK government on a common position for Ireland, north and south.

That would avoid a border for customs or immigration and ensure free movement of goods and people here.
