Cameron cancels Brexit meeting with Kenny

And it's nothing to do with our Taoiseach...

The Taoiseach's scheduled meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron has been cancelled.

The pair were due to meet in Manchester on Friday morning to discuss Brexit and allow Enda Kenny to show his support for the 'Remain' campaign. 

However, 10 Downing Street has now pulled the plug, with no explanation given.

Dublin officials told the Irish Independent that "Mr Cameron's plans had changed".

"Scheduling issues" have also been cited.

The Irish Times understands that the decision was taken following advice from 'Remain' strategists, who suggested that Cameron has become a liability in the drive to persuade working-class Labour supporters to vote to stay in the EU.

Three out of four new polls put the 'Leave' campaign ahead by between 6-8%.

The rest of Kenny's UK trip will go ahead as scheduled. The Taoiseach is in Liverpool today, before taking in visits to Manchester and Glasgow on Friday.

The UK goes to the polls on Thursday, June 23rd.
