Lord Frost is back defending Britain against the EU. It is well known that the EU are not keen on Frost. That’s why Boris has given Lord Frost the position of watching over relations between the two sides.
When we left the EU transition period on 31st December 2020, we were told by both sides that we would not be returning to the negotiation table in 2021 unless there was a deal.
At the very last minute, a deal was agreed with a caveat of returning to the table in 2021 to carry on negotiating through a set of joint councils made up of representatives from Britain and the EU.
Since leaving the transition period, the EU has been very heavy-handed with its interpretation of the agreement’s text. This hasn’t gone down well with Boris.
Former permanent representative to the EU explained the situation going forward. Sir Ivan Rogers said: “It’s going to be a bit spiky, maybe more than a bit spiky. “It’s going to be pretty bumpy.
“We aren’t at the end – we are at the beginning of a new chapter, and there’s plenty still to do.”
