Raising criticism against British PM Boris Johnson’s new Brexit plan, the Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar said Boris Johnson's Brexit plans "fall short in a number of aspects."

Varadkar said he failed to see how, under the proposal, Northern Ireland and Ireland could operate under different customs regimes without customs posts.

"No one party should be able to block the majority view on the island," he said, referring to the fact that the plan seems to be aimed at pleasing the DUP.

"Any consent mechanism and democracy mechanism must reflect the views of the majority of people in Ireland and Northern Ireland," said the Taoiseach.
