Liz Truss doesn’t think the UK will be ready for Brexit – 9 unsurprised takedowns
Some media outlets, including Business Insider, have seen a leaked letter from International Trade Secretary Liz Truss to the Prime Minister, which expresses doubts about the UK’s preparations for Brexit.
What. A. Shocker.
Anyway, BI’s Adam Payne shared the details.
Exclusive: I've seen a pretty explosive letter from Truss to Gove/Sunak which says she's worried that UK borders won't be ready for 2021
— Ports might not be fully ready
— NI protocol unlikely to be either
— UK plans could be challenged at WTOhttps://t.co/InG7BbES3m

These reactions cover it rather well.
This letter is truly shocking.

If Liz Truss has figured it out, it must be obvious to every single MP.

The film La Haine begins with a guy who falls off a skyscraper and who, as he passes each floor, says to himself "so far so good." That's pretty much a description of this Government's policy on Brexit. https://t.co/cUYy0ql9Kt

Davey Six-Toes had a clarification of one of her points.
To be fair, I think Liz is a little too late with the global reputational damage bit. https://t.co/nnXYwRNf0Y

James O’Brien, who has proved depressingly accurate with his Brexit predictions, mused on something.
Incoming. I wonder whether she got the gig so that they could hit her with the 'Remainer' stick when she started telling the truth… https://t.co/h6ClO9i17v
