Brexit minister Lord Frost walks out on Boris - Panic in No10 as PM's key ally quits, saying he's 'disillusioned' with the Government's Covid Plan B restrictions, vaccine passports, tax hikes and the cost of Net Zero green agenda

Cabinet Minister Lord Frost has sensationally resigned from Boris Johnson's Government, The Mail on Sunday can exclusively reveal.

His dramatic move - triggered by his growing 'disillusionment' with the 'direction' of Tory policy - has sparked yet another crisis within a beleaguered Downing Street.

At a conference last month he said: "I am very happy that free Britain, or at least merry England, is probably now the freest country in the world as regards Covid restrictions. No mask rules, no vaccine passports, and long may it remain so."

However, Frost has also had to accept concessions over Brexit, with the British government dropping its demand to block the European court of justice from being the ultimate arbiter of trade rules in Northern Ireland.

It is reported that Lord Frost handed his resignation in a week ago, but was persuaded by Mr Johnson to stay in his post until January.

However, the life peer was "disappointed" that this plan had "become public" on Saturday evening, and then wrote another letter to the Prime Minister on the same night, stating that he is to "step down with immediate effect".
