Brandon Lewis and the Northern Ireland issues he’s faced…and those that remain in his in-tray

One day every Tory will get to be Northern Ireland Secretary, or at least that’s how it feels at times.

t was expected that the current Secretary of State would be promoted as a reward for his loyalty to Boris Johnson, it was just after 6pm on Wednesday before he entered Downing Street, one of the last serving cabinet ministers to learn his fate.

Brandon Lewis hasn’t really put his stamp on the job so far, that isn’t entirely his fault given that the majority of his tenure was spent in lockdown with travel restrictions in place.
