And Jayne Adye, the director of Get Britain Out, said as a result, despite Boris Johnson’s pledge to “Get Brexit done”, the UK still does not have full control of its borders, well over 18 months after severing ties with the bloc. Ms Adye set out her concerns in the course of her regular weekly bulletin, published at the start of a week in which Brexit minister Lord David Frost prepares to be grilled in the House of Lords on the subject of the Northern Ireland Protocol.

The mechanism for preventing a hard border on the island of Ireland effectively keeps the region in the EU’s Single Market, resulting in what critics claim is a border down the Irish Sea.

Ms Adye believes Lord Frost should by now have triggered Article 16 and suspended the Protocol.

However, she said: “The Government has extended the so-called ‘rollover agreements’ we have with the EU, which delay implementing full checks on goods moving between Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

“These agreements were set to expire at the end of September – a deadline the UK set out in June – but the new extension has been done on an indefinite basis with no deadline.”

She added: “On top of inaction over Northern Ireland, the Government has officially delayed the full implementation of the UK’s new customs regime for goods being imported into this country.

“This means – for the moment – frustratingly we will continue to stay aligned to the EU’s own policies and we still won’t have full control of our own borders.

“The Government claims this is to make sure goods flow quickly as we come towards Christmas

“But what this screams to me is – ‘Remainers’ in the ‘Silly Snivel Service’ are still in control – denying Brexit needs to be fully implemented, so they are deliberately delaying getting themselves sorted out!”
