EU President Donald Tusk began the charm offensive, saying that the bloc's "hearts are open" to Britain changing its mind.

Bureau Office Minister David Lidington, who seats a few Brexit pastoral boards of trustees, said the recommendation by some European Union pioneers that Britain may change its psyche about leaving the alliance was a "red herring". On the first part of Brexit talks, Juncker said he had the privilege to have a close working relationship with Varadkar, adding that both the EU Commission and the Irish government worked side by side to move to next phase of talks, adding that the partnership would "continue and grow stronger".
