Truss: Do not blame Parliament for MP arrested for rape

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss cautions against blaming "parliamentary culture" for the crimes of an individual, despite conceding there is an "issue" with the culture in Parliament after an MP was arrested on suspicion of rape.

She calls for "further professionalisation" but does not think the further work that needs to be done on that front "excuses" someone from committing a criminal offence.

Truss: No reason for EU action over our NI Protocol changes

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss claims there is "no reason" for the EU to take action over the UK's proposed changes to the Northern Ireland Protocol as they "don't make the EU any worse off". She says the alterations they are making are legal because the Protocol "undermines" the Good Friday Agreement and are aimed at making sure the people of N. Ireland get the same tax "benefits" as the rest of the UK. Report by Edwardst. Like us on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/itn and follow us on Twitter at http://twitter.com/itn
