Johnsonian diplomacy

Lots of people in the social media have pointed out that the new British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Hilary Clinton has "a steely blue stare, like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital". Curiously, no-one, as far as I saw, has mentioned that he said in March that he was “genuinely worried” that Donald Trump could become president and that being mistaken for him on the street in New York was “one of the worst moments” in his visit.

Many people think he should apologise for saying Obama is 'a half-Kenyan' who harbours ancestral dislike of Britain, but I have seen the same point made by countless people and it's a perfectly fair comment - for a backbench MP.

A few weeks ago Johnson won The Spectator magazine’s President Erdogan Offensive Poetry competition with this squib which might be a criminal offence in Turkey or - oddly enough - Germany. 
There was a young fellow from Ankara
Who was a terrific wankerer
Till he sowed his wild oats
With the help of a goat
But he didn’t even stop to thankera.

  2. He scarcely failed - he won the referendum.
