The Taoiseach feels Ireland is being victimised by Britain's decision to leave the European Union.

While speaking to Bloomberg in Davos this morning Leo Varadkar asked why Ireland should have to come up with the answers to a problem created elsewhere.

If the UK was to change its red lines then of course our position could evolve.

But lets not forget that this withdrawal agreement is an agreement that was drawn around all of the self-imposed red lines the UK set for itself.

Meanwhile, Leo Varadkar's also issued some stark warnings of what the island of Ireland would look like if a hard border was to be erected following Brexit.

The Taoiseach said in a worst case scenario soldiers would be needed.

He added that cameras and a police or army presence may be required as a result.

Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has also warned that they could then become targets.
