Denial: Brandon Lewis insists there is no Irish Sea border but he is virtually a lone voice

Today's inauguration of Joe Biden as US President marks the end of Trump's turbulent tenure.

And while he didn't coin the phrase 'fake news', President Trump used it to berate his opponents in the media and politics enough for it to become synonymous with him.

But the concept of fake news will not be relocating to Mar-a-Lago. Instead it is embodied in Secretary of State Brandon Lewis's denial of an Irish Sea border and the upheaval it has brought.
