Lord Frost resigned from his role as Brexit negotiator last week. The 56-year-old cited in his resignation letter that he was concerned with the direction that the Conservative Party is headed, as well as new Covid restrictions that were being brought in. He was replaced by Liz Truss, the current Foreign Secretary.
In his letter, he wrote: “You know my concerns about the current direction of travel.
“I hope we will move as fast as possible to where we need to get to: a lightly regulated, low-tax, entrepreneurial economy, at the cutting edge of modern science and economic change.
“Three hundred years of history show that countries which take that route grow and prosper, and I am confident we will too.”
“We also need to learn to live with Covid and I know that is your instinct too.
“You took a brave decision in July, against considerable opposition, to open up the country again.
“Sadly it did not prove to be irreversible, as I wished, and believe you did too.
“I hope we can get back on track soon and not be tempted by the kind of coercive measures we have seen elsewhere.”
Express.co.uk readers have urged the Ms Truss to takeover where Frost left off and ensure complete sovereignty from the EU.
DNeil wrote: “Trade is only one aspect.
“We need complete sovereignty and that means no role for the ECJ.”
MissingEUAlready chimed in: “Varadkar is ridiculous, we don’t need a border but the EU does.
“So it’s their problem and responsibility.”
Michael Taylor wrote: “The protocol has worked for the EU. It hasn’t worked for us.
“The acts of union 1800 requires that there be free and equal market access between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.”

Many were also quick to call out the Government upon Lord Frost’s departure from his role as negotiator.
Backbench Tory MP Andrew Bridgen said Mr Johnson was “running out of time and out of friends to deliver on the promises and discipline of a true Conservative government.”
In his tweet, he wrote: “Lord Frost has made it clear, 100 Conservative backbenchers have made it clear, but most importantly, so did the people of North Shropshire.”
Labour’s deputy leader Angela Rayner also believed the resignation showed all was not well within the Conservative Party.
Ms Rayner added the Government was “in total chaos right when the country faces an uncertain few weeks.”
Conservative MP Simon Hoare, who chairs the Commons Northern Ireland Select Committee, said Lord Frost was “unsuited to the ‘doing of politics'” and “never understood the need for personal rapport or the importance of trust.”
