According to local media reports, Britain’s Brexit Minister David Frost resigned on Saturday due to his disagreement with the restrictions imposed on the spread of Govt-19 and frustration with the direction of the Brexit talks.

Frost, a key figure in talks with the European Union, submitted his resignation letter to British Prime Minister Boris Johnson last week. According to the Mail on Sunday, which first published the information on Saturday, the minister wanted to leave the government smoothly and agreed to remain in office until next month.

However, the British government released this Saturday night Carda and Boris Johnson “I’m disappointed that this plan was made public tonight, and I believe it is appropriate to resign with immediate effect in this situation,” Frost said.

“I will send the baton to others to manage our future relationship with the European Union,” Frost said.

Frost wrote of the restrictions imposed on the control of corona virus infections: “In the face of considerable opposition, you made a bold decision in July to reopen the country. Unfortunately, it has not been proven to be as irreversible as I wished, and I believe you have.”

“I hope we can get back on track soon and not be tempted by the coercive measures we have seen elsewhere,” he added.

Some vehicles reported that the Brexit negotiator had decided to leave the government because of the so-called Plan B, which mandates the use of masks in public transport and trade, as well as providing evidence of vaccination in key cases.

Moreover, Frost is said to be increasingly unhappy with the executive over tax increases in the UK, which the British Conservatives are running against the ambitions of supporters of the cuts.

In recent months, the negotiator has held several meetings with European Commission Vice President Maros Chefkovic to discuss differences in adoption of the so-called Northern Ireland Protocol designed to bypass a physical border between the two Irelands.

Tough weeks for Johnson

Angela Rainer, Labor “Number Two”, the UK government’s main opposition party, said the news of Frost’s resignation was a sign that the Johnson administration was “in total disarray”.

In recent weeks, the Prime Minister has seen a number of controversies, such as the open celebration of Christmas a year ago, when there were strict restrictions on the fight against Govt-19.

Another blow came to Johnson on Tuesday, when nearly 100 Conservative MPs voted against a bill that would make it mandatory to submit vaccination certificates for major events, which was only passed by Labor votes.
