Irish foreign minister, Simon Coveney speaking to BBC Radio 4

  • We cannot be asked to leap into the dark by the UK
  • We want reassurance there will not be regulatory divergence on Ireland after Brexit

Coveney was also named as Ireland's deputy prime minister yesterday. He was also out talking about the border issue as well here yesterday too.

Feels like the border issue is going to take more precedence in Brexit talks for the time being.

GBP/USD holding steady above the 1.3500 level, currently trading at 1.3522. Relatively quiet day so far with tight ranges on most pairs.
