Suella Braverman suggests post-Brexit rules in Northern Ireland have ‘fundamentally failed’

DUP leader Gavin Robinson had been awarded an urgent question on concerns about the recent High Court ruling that a key part of the government’s flagship Rwanda policy won’t apply in Northern Ireland because of the Windsor Framework.

Braverman asked of the minister: “Isn’t it now patently clear that the Windsor framework has operated in a way to undermine our sovereignty, to undermine Northern Ireland’s place within the United Kingdom, and I’m afraid, has fundamentally failed upon its first contact with reality?’ is the UK’s leading digital-only political website, providing comprehensive coverage of UK politics.
