UK Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has said she does not regret voting for the Northern Ireland Protocol which she now says is disastrous, suggesting that she endorsed it in the expectation it would be changed.

In an interview with the Belfast Telegraph, Ms Truss said that myriad problems were “baked into the protocol” but then claimed it was a surprise to see these problems emerge – even though the UK government’s own analysis said at the time that many of them would happen.
