  • Britain Reacts To The EU Referendum Result

Mr Varadkar was responding to speculation that the British government could arrange a second vote due to the lack of clarity over what Britain leaving the European Union actually means.

"I think it's more in hope than any kind of expectation".

He told reporters: "I am here neither to punish nor to reward the UK".

Varadkar said it would be "counterproductive" to back calls for a second referendum which have grown since leading Brexit campaigner Nigel Farage floated the idea last week.

EU President Donald Tusk said this week that the bloc's "hearts are open" to Britain changing its mind.

At the same time, the company announced yesterday that they would begin to notify their US users who were exposed to Russian propaganda.

Varadkar meanwhile warned Britain against "backsliding" on commitments that it made in a provisional deal in December to prevent the return of a hard border between British-ruled Northern Ireland and European Union member Ireland.

He was the first of all European Union heads of government to address the Parliament in Strasbourg and was also forced to deny an accusation by Mr Farage that he was part of a conspiracy alongside former British PM Tony Blair to stop Brexit.

The British voted in a June 2016 referendum to leave and the date is set for March 29, 2019.

"On this occasion he used language which he accepts was wrong and he regrets the language that was used and I think he has already expressed publicly his regret at using the language that he did".

In July, former Polish premier Tusk invoked John Lennon when he quoted the lyrics from his song "Imagine" to explain that he was a "dreamer" about a possible British return. On the first part of Brexit talks, Juncker said he had the privilege to have a close working relationship with Varadkar, adding that both the EU Commission and the Irish government worked side by side to move to next phase of talks, adding that the partnership would "continue and grow stronger".

Net neutrality rollback: 22 USA attorneys general sue the FCC
Kentucky is one of 22 states suing the Federal Communications Commission over its planned rollback of net neutrality changes. Virginia is just the next state to have a bill in the legislature forwarded regarding net neutrality laws.

The border has largely disappeared since Britain and Ireland joined the EU's single market in 1993 and Northern Ireland's violent "Troubles" wound down after the 1998 Good Friday peace accord.

"I don't think it's a plot".

Labour MP Chuka Umunna said Britons have a right to change their mind about Brexit. They are due to start talks in February on a post-Brexit transition period, and in April on future ties, including a trade deal, but much remains to be thrashed out.

Some EU leaders have pushed Mr Barnier to admit Britain could be offered a "tailor-made" deal with the UK.

"I just get the feeling that, whether it's the Good Friday Agreement, whether it's the border or whether it's trade, he is part of an attempt by this place to make Brexit as hard as possible".
