Whilst SanjayP raged: “Paris, Frankfurt and Amsterdam all dreamt that they could steal the City’s crown.

“Dreams are what they will remain.”

She said she held “constructive talks” with Maroš Šefčovič – the Vice-President of the EU Commission last week.

In a joint EU-UK statement, the pair said intensive talks would begin this week to deal with the outstanding issues relating to the protocol.

Speaking to the BBC afterwards, Ms Truss “We’ve had constructive talks with the EU.

“We’re now going to go into intensive negotiations to work towards a negotiated solution to sort out these very real issues for the people of Northern Ireland.”

“What I want is a negotiated solution. I think there is a deal to be done. We have had constructive talks over the last day.

“Of course there is more work to do, and that is why we are intensifying the discussions.

“I will be seeing the vice-president again in a week’s time, and I do want to make progress.

“Clearly if we don’t make sufficient progress we will have to look at the alternatives, but my absolute desire is to get a deal that works for the people of Northern Ireland.”
