Oh dear. Donald Tusk has been causing trouble this morning with his comments about some Brexiteers deserving a special place in hell. But it seems that the Irish Taoiseach is determined to go one better. At the end of a press conference in Brussels, Leo Varadkar was caught out on microphone making a gag with Tusk about the 'terrible trouble' he'll now get from the British press:

It's safe to say Tusk enjoyed the joke, as the pair were filmed laughing along together. But Mr S isn't convinced this is the best way of calming Brexit tensions...
