The Sun newspaper in the UK has had a real pop at Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar on Friday morning.

The front page of the newspaper describes the "Irish PM" as an "airhead" over alleged comments he made regarding brexit.

Varadkar is reported to have said that:

"The situation at the moment is that the UK is part of the single European sky. If they leave the EU they are not, and that does mean if there was a no-deal hard Brexit next March, the planes would not fly and Britain would be an island in many ways. If they want their planes to fly over our skies, they would need to take that into account."

The Sun, however, have say that the Taoiseach will "ban British planes as revenge for Brexit" and people were not happy with the way Leo Varadkar's comments were treated.

It'll be interesting to see how Leo Varadkar responds to this, if he does.
