Rishi Sunak should be praised for trying to fix the mess left by Boris Johnson

The prime minister deserves credit for having brought a constructive attitude to the negotiations between the United Kingdom and the European Union over Northern Ireland.

In stark contrast to his predecessor Boris Johnson, who tried to negotiate by bluster and threats, Rishi Sunak’s calm pragmatism seems to have secured concessions from the EU that would have seemed unthinkable only a few months ago.

Mr Sunak’s ministerial team was in fact appointed by his immediate predecessor, Liz Truss. James Cleverly as foreign secretary took the lead in the talks with the EU, while Chris Heaton-Harris and Steve Baker took over at the Northern Ireland Office.
