“We don’t have any indications yet of any particular dramatic moves,” Varadkar told reporters when asked about a Bloomberg report on Wednesday that the British and German governments had abandoned key Brexit demands.

Varadkar said he was not aware of the detail of the report but that there had been “a fair bit of kite flying and a fair bit of posturing” on Brexit over the last couple of weeks.
