Lord Frost put forward an op-ed in the Daily Mail where he slams the EU regarding trade going to and from Northern Ireland.
In his article Lord Frost said: “There is no evidence that goods not meeting EU standards are getting into the EU’s single market via Northern Ireland.”
“All this paperwork and checks – to deal with a risk that does not exist.”
“The EU takes a very purist view of all this.”
“It seems to want to treat goods moving to Northern Ireland from the rest of the UK in the same way as the arrival of a vast Chinese container ship at Rotterdam.”
“We did not anticipate this when we agreed the Protocol and it makes no sense.”
