Liz Truss has reportedly sparked concern within EU circles over the prospect of the UK’s former Brexit negotiation being promoted to a senior position in a future Downing Street administration. The Big Issue’s editor Paul McNamee has suggested that France and Emmanuel Macron, in particular, have been left feeling a “little anxious”.

Mr McNamee told Sky News: “There are worries from the EU that Lord Frost will have a quite senior role within any potential Truss administration.

“France, none of us will be surprised to hear after recent comments are a little anxious.”

He added: “Washington will welcome her some of her foreign policy agendas but also will have worries about where she is in the protocol and what that means for the Good Friday Agreement given Joe Biden’s huge support for all things Irish.”

The Tory leadership candidate is reported to be considering invoking Article 16 if she becomes prime minister in September.
