Rishi Sunak to share awkward dinner with Boris Johnson and Liz Truss after they tried to wreck his Brexit plan | The Sun

RISHI Sunak will share an awkward dinner with Boris Johnson and Liz Truss tomorrow after the pair tried to wreck his Brexit plans.

All living ex-PMs have been invited to Northern Ireland for a gala dinner celebrating 25 years of the Belfast Agreement.

It will be the first time the trio have broken bread since Johnson and Truss's flopped attempt to vote down Sunak's Windsor Framework deal with Brussels to ease Brexit trade barriers.

Direct London rule came to an end when the British-Irish Agreement came into force on December 2, 1999.

The multi-party agreement committed Sinn Féin and the Progressive Unionist Party to "use any influence they have" to bring about the decommissioning of all paramilitary arms within two years of the referendums approving the agreement.
