8 things that Leo Varadkar needs to work into Brexit negotiations for us

On the first day of Brexit, Leo Varadkar gave to me…

1. Access to BBC iPlayer.

There’s only so much content that anyone actually wants to watch on RTÉ Player.

2. If free UK delivery applies above the border, then it can definitely be extended to all 32 counties.

Anywhere that offers free UK delivery should have to offer free UK and Ireland delivery once Brexit is in motion. They should have been offering it to us all along, but the Brits have been taking us for fools, thinking we wouldn’t notice.

It takes the same amount of resources (perhaps even less), to send a package from England to central Ireland as it does to send it to the north of Ireland. Half of the stuff going up north probably passes through Dublin port anyway.

3. Krispy Kreme

No matter how many donut shops we get in Dublin, none can rival Krispy Kreme. There’s no reason why the UK should have Krispy Kreme and we shouldn’t.

4. Getting rid of Mrs. Brown’s Boys.

Leo Varadkar can use Mrs. Brown’s Boys as a bargaining chip. We’ll swap you Mrs. Brown’s Boys for BBC iPlayer. Nobody here will miss it.

5. A certain six counties…

6. Lower the price of Irish Freddos and Animal Bars to match the British prices.

With Animal Bars gone up to 63c, it’s time for the government to take action.

7. Ask the UK to come and collect Ed Sheeran.

He’s only encouraging Niall Horan and Saoirse Ronan to play up their Oirishness abroad and it’s stressing us all out.

8. Nobody can ever utter the word ‘Londonderry’ again.
