But Ms Foster argued most people in Northern Ireland want politicians to “settle down” and deal with the pandemic, not discuss a border poll.

“We only came back into devolution after three years out of devolution in January last year and then we came into the pandemic in March,” she said.

“Therefore we need to get on with all of the things that matter to everybody in their everyday lives. That’s what I’m focused on and that’s what everyone should be focused on.”

Asked whether economically Northern Ireland is now as much part of the EU as the UK following Brexit, Ms Foster replied: “Absolutely not.

“There are of course difficulties with the protocol, difficulties which we warned about when it was envisioned and put through Parliament.

Questioned on whether the DUP should have supported former prime minister Theresa May’s initial Brexit deal, Ms Foster said: “Absolutely not.

“Theresa May’s deal would have left us in the EU customs union and the single market forever.

“If you remember, attorney general Geoffrey Cox at that time said we would not have any escape route from any EU customs union or single market.

“People are having a bit of revisionism around Theresa May’s deal. They should revisit it and see what it meant for us in Northern Ireland and they’ll come to the conclusion that it certainly was not a better deal.”
