Before the referendum, #Frost said #Brexit was not sustainable
David Frost, the man who negotiated the Northern Ireland Protocol with the European Union, now says it is not sustainable in its current form.
Lord Frost is the cabinet minister in charge of relations with the EU & who was previously the UK’s chief #Brexit negotiator.
The EU and Ireland, however, have said there is no reason to change the #Brexit divorce deal which was signed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson
and is now an international treaty
Before the referendum, Mr Frost (as he was then known) warned that #Brexit would not be sustainable.

#Frost The Frost speech doesn’t return UK foreign policy to it’s pre-EC stance, it introduces an alien element that would be unrecognisable to Pitt, Castlereagh, Palmerston, Disraeli, or a Balfour.
All the great figures shaping our foreign policy saw the need for a “balance of powers”, the “comity of nations”, created through alliances and crafted at Congresses in Vienna, Berlin & Versailles.

It was a constant work-in-progress, ultimately failing in 1914
The pursuit of naked self interest, “red in tooth & claw”, was seen as Teutonic, and the work of Bismarck.

It led to European wars in 1866 & 1870, and laid the foundation to national rivalries that fuelled the descent into war and chaos of the 20th century.
