UK should rethink Brexit says former Irish PM John Bruton

The former prime minister of Ireland, John Bruton, has said he hopes the UK revisits its decision to leave the European Union.

Mr Bruton said Brexit would "cost the UK a lot of money" and it would "solve a lot of problems" if it was reversed.

In a BBC Scotland interview, Mr Bruton suggested voters return to the polls once the terms of departure become clear.

He also cast doubt on the possibility of Scotland staying in the single market, if the UK as a whole leaves - describing it as technically, administratively and politically nearly impossible.
