Liz Truss: Changes to NI Protocol are legal and necessary

Speaking in the House of Commons, Foreign Secretary Liz Truss insists the government's plan to unilaterally change the Northern Ireland Protocol are "both legal and necessary", despite criticism from her own back benchers.

Former minister Andrew Mitchell criticises the bill, saying it "brazenly breaks a solemn international treaty" and "trashes" the UK's international reputation and risks a trade war with the EU.

In addition to the U.K. Treasury chief and Health Secretary, a number of other officials have resigned. Former U.K. Treasury Chief Rishi Sunak penned a letter to Johnson explaining his decision to resign.

Former Health Secretary Sajid Javid also explained his decision in a letter, stating that the Conservative Party needs "humility, grip and a new direction.". It is clear this situation will not change under your leadership, Sajid Javid, Health Secretary, via AP. Former International Development Secretary Andrew Mitchell, a Conservative, criticized Johnson in a recent BBC interview. It’s a bit like the death of Rasputin. He’s been poisoned, stabbed, he’s been shot, his body’s been dumped in a freezing river and still he lives, Andrew Mitchell, Former International Development Secretary, via AP. But this is an abnormal prime minister, a brilliantly charismatic, very funny, very amusing, big, big character. , Andrew Mitchell, Former International Development Secretary, via AP. But I’m afraid he has neither the character nor the temperament to be our prime minister, Andrew Mitchell, Former International Development Secretary, via AP.
