Liz truss says she will not allow northern ireland situation to 'drift'

The Independent published this video item, entitled “Liz Truss says she will not allow Northern Ireland situation to ‘drift'” – below is their description.

Liz Truss has said that she will not allow the situation in Northern Ireland to “drift”, saying the government must “resolve the issue” of the Brexit protocol.

The new prime minister told the Commons: “My preference is for a negotiated solution, but it does have to deliver all the things that we set out in the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill, and what we cannot allow is for this situation to drift.”

The controversial bill, which Ms Truss introduced as foreign secretary, would hand London powers to unilaterally suspend parts of the protocol agreed by Boris Johnson and Brussels.

In This Story: Ireland

Ireland is an island in the North Atlantic. It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George’s Channel.

Geopolitically, Ireland is divided between the Republic of Ireland (officially named Ireland), which covers five-sixths of the island, and Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom. As of 2016, 4.8 million people live in the Republic of Ireland, and 1.8 million live in Northern Ireland.

The Irish climate is influenced by the Atlantic Ocean and thus very moderate, and winters are milder than expected for such a northerly area, although summers are cooler than those in continental Europe. Rainfall and cloud cover are abundant.

A strong Irish culture exists, as expressed through Gaelic games, Irish music and the Irish language. The island’s culture shares many features with that of Great Britain, including the English language, and sports such as association football, rugby, horse racing, and golf.
