BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Ireland’s Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said he believed the risk of Britain crashing out of the bloc without any divorce agreement was growing with the British Conservatives set to choose a new leader.
“Well I think there is a growing risk of a no deal. There’s a possibility that the new British prime minister may try to repudiate the withdrawal agreement,” he told reporters before a meeting of EU leaders in Brussels on Tuesday.
Varadkar also said he would support centre-right candidate Manfred Weber for the next European Commission President because he came from the party family in parliament that won the most seats.
