Kenny: “I utterly reject any suggestion that we would leave the European Union”

Taoiseach Enda Kenny might be in some seriously hot water this week, possibly even fatal to his own position, but it appears that the Mayo man is still as smug as ever when it comes to what the Irish people may want.

He said Ireland will have to work very closely with the UK over their Brexit plans and when they enact Article 50.

The Taoiseach said: “I utterly reject any suggestion that we would leave the European Union.”

Kenny said:
“The Government’s plan for Brexit combines these three essential elements”.

“The Brexit talks ahead will require skill creativity and imagination”.

He continued: “our negotiating objectives are crystal clear. We are firmly focused on winning the argument and on getting the best deal for Ireland.

“We will have to demonstrate toughness, patience and resilience. We will remain at the heart of the European Union and open to the world. We will protect the peace process. We will implement our comprehensive Economic Plan.”
