"We really want to be over with it now".
There will be important voting in British Parliament this week, in particular on the withdrawal agreement - rejected a first time in January - that Prime Minister Theresa May renegotiated with European Union authorities.
Speaking to Germany's Morgenpost, the Italian politician was asked whether, after almost three years since the referendum and months of negotiation with obstructive Eurocrats in Brussels, he believed other Eurosceptic member states would be inspired by the United Kingdom to leave the bloc.
"So all these things we have discussed, the Cooper-Boles Amendment, Lewin Amendment and so on, either blocking no deal or asking for an Article 50 extension, those rely on there being a Government motion that MPs can put down their amendment to".
If May's deal is voted down this week, Parliament will then get a vote on whether to delay Brexit to avoid a chaotic no-deal exit.
Britain's Parliament is due to vote Tuesday on the withdrawal agreement, which it has already rejected once.
British lawmakers have the choice to "vote for this deal or plunge the country into a political crisis", said Lidington, noting that the European Union has made clear this will be "the only deal on the table".
Britain's beleaguered prime minister would declare a personal victory and the United Kingdom would enter a transition period until the end of 2020.
"There is a widely held view that the United Kingdom has not been negotiating in good faith over the last few days", he said, adding that at least one diplomat had mentioned planning for a "post-Theresa May government". "We are committed to ratifying this deal before 29 March".
The former chairman of the Number 10 policy board said: "Brexit is a very big test for parliament".
That's unlikely. There are a few hard-core "Brexiteer" members of Parliament in May's Conservative Party who support leaving the European Union with no deal, and a recent poll showed a majority of the party's rank-and-file members agree.
But Labour's shadow Brexit secretary Sir Keir Starmer said the change "adds nothing" from the letter Mrs May returned from negotiations with on January 14.
Speaking in Dublin at the launch of the National Childcare Scheme, Mr Varadkar said 29 March is a self-imposed deadline, but "if there is going to be an extension, it has to be an extension with a purpose".
May, who is against a delay, has said Brexit could only be postponed until the end of June, at the latest. Will the vote results be for a "hard" Brexit or delay?
It's unclear what a couple more days would do anyway.
The prime minister's office said a trip was not confirmed, though Irish Deputy Prime Minister Simon Coveney said May planned to go to Strasbourg later Monday "to try to finalize an agreement, if that's possible".
He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme: "I hope the prime minister can get withdrawal through and then I do think we need to choose a new leader for a new generation with a new vision of a conservativism that can make sense of Brexit and reinspire and reunite the nation". In the unlikely event she pulls it off, markets will rally.
However, "Parliament could choose to hold another vote of no confidence in her government, which they did after the last meaningful vote", said Maddy Thimont Jack, a researcher at the Institute for Government in London.
As May has failed to substantially change her Brexit strategy for months, she has found it has been changed for her by lawmakers from all parties.
For all of the prime minister's weaknesses as a politician - her repetition of talking points has earned her the nickname "the Maybot" - she has proved remarkably durable.
I definitely messed up his lap", McDowell said, "but then he tried to crash us. "I just didn't appreciate it". We all kind of waited until the end, and then just had a lot of traffic, so it was just unfortunate.
