Brexit: Boris Johnson was 'foolish' over Good Friday Agreement

Labour MP David Lammy has described Prime Minister Boris Johnson as "foolish" over his handling of Brexit negotiations and the Good Friday Agreement.

He was speaking to the BBC's Andrew Marr following the election of Joe Biden as US president.

Mr Lammy said Mr Johnson was "foolish to put the Good Friday Agreement on the table in the way that he did when you know you've got an Irish-American who might become leader of his country".

Speaking later on the same programme, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said the UK government would "never do anything to put at risk the Good Friday Agreement" – and that it's looking forward to working with the president-elect.
