Brexit minister Lord Frost has resigned from Boris Johnson’s government.
According to The Mail on Sunday, which first reported the news, the politician handed in his resignation a week ago, and in his letter - which was circulated in the media last night- he said it would take “immediate effect”.
Writing to prime minister Boris Johnson about his reasons for his resignation, he said that while he was proud of a “secure” Brexit which “gave us full freedom about our future choices as a country”, he had “concerns about the current direction of travel” of the government.

He added he wished to see a “lightly regulated, low-tax, entrepreneurial economy” and spoke of a “need to learn to live with Covid”, saying “I hope we can get back on track soon and not be tempted by the kind of coercive measures we have seen elsewhere.”
