Liz Truss faces INSTANT Brexit crisis as Sunak and Mordaunt turn down key Cabinet role

According to reports Ms Truss is struggling to find anybody to take on the job of Northern Ireland Secretary with a plan to move the current holder, Brandon Lewis, to be Justice Secretary

But with the row over the Northern Ireland protocol still ongoing with the EU she needs to find a minister to help face down Brussels as well as get the Stormont Assembly running again.

As Foreign Secretary, Ms Truss passed the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill in a bid to ease the problems in Ulster.

A hardline EU approach to the protocol had meant that the province was being cut off from the rest of the UK.

It also meant that food and medicines could be blocked from being sent to the shelves of shops in Northern Ireland.

However, the compromise solution with the Bill has both enraged the EU but not gone far enough for Unionists

Leading Unionists instead want Ms Truss to invoke Article 16 in the Protocol and suspend it
