Michel Barnier says Brexit is a 'failure' the EU must learn from  - RTE
He told MEPs: "For Ireland, peace is very important. Everybody has to shoulder their responsibilities...and respect what they have signed up to. This is something that affects peace and lasting trust between the EU, the UK, Ireland, all of us.

"Ireland, we don't look at it just in terms of goods, services and trade. Instead, men and women who need peace, which is very fragile."

Mr Barnier recalled four years of "very difficult negotiations" and said that as well as a difficult divorce, Brexit was a "warning".

"It's a warning Brexit. And it's a failure, a failure of the European Union. And we have to learn lessons from it as politicians here in the European Parliament and Council, in the Commission, in all of the capitals.
