Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar today said he was not sure if British PM Boris Johnson would be able to make the necessary compromises to get a Brexit deal that would pass through parliament, per Reuters.
"We saw how difficult that was for prime minister May, the compromises she had to make - we had to make compromises too - and ultimately she was unable to get that deal through the House of Commons," Varadkar added. "The numbers for Boris Johnson are even tougher."
The GBP/USD pair largely ignored these comments and continues to trade in the upper half of its daily range near 1.2450.
