EU alarmed – Liz Truss has a point to prove when confronting the Commission in Brussels. Actions above words. 

After multiple promises to put the EU in its place in regards to the Northern Ireland Protocol, Liz Truss is now expected to toughen up the UK’s stance against Brussels. 

In part, Liz Truss won her leadership race after promising to get tough against the EU Commission and now she has to deliver on what she pledged to do. 

According to today’s “Sueddeutsche Zeitung” article, Ms Truss was successful “because she has already shown as foreign minister that she is quite capable of standing up to

Brussels”.

They added: “Truss must continue to be tough with the EU, otherwise she would lose her credibility. This is the view not only of her supporters in London but also of Brussels, Paris, and Berlin.”

“In the case of Truss, the question of credibility is even more important than in the case of Johnson, says an EU diplomat, because she voted in the Brexit referendum for the UK to remain in the EU.”

“Now she has to show all the more that she is serious about Brexit.”
