Comments by Irish prime minister, Leo Varadkar

Leo Varadkar
  • The gap is still 'very large' on Brexit
  • Says he got on well with Boris Johnson
  • Says that Boris Johnson is 'acting in good faith'

This doesn't tell us much of anything new but it just reiterates the fact that a Brexit deal is nowhere in the offing still. I doubt the pound will look much into the headlines here as the break higher stays the course in cable just above the 1.2400 handle.
