Former Taoiseach echoes Tony Blair and John Major's concerns over the potential state of the UK's trading relationship with Europe, and urges them to rethink its decision.
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 be given the chance to reconsider their decision once the terms of departure become clear. The UK government has said the leave vote must be respected. Former UK prime ministers, Tony Blair and John Major have made similar suggestions to those made by Mr Burton.
