Politicians take insults. Really now???

They love him. He is amusement in an otherwise dull and grim world of boring admin.

True, but not soon - I always thought May was giving him the rope to hang himself but then she would need him to commit something irretrievable to end his serious political credibility for a generation before letting him loose. We may not be far off that day.

I don't understand TM's thinking. Foreign Secretary is not the kind of post where one can have a loose cannon rolling around. She has enough on her plate, already, without having to worry about him, surely?

In addition, he might have a grudge against her and wish her harm, if he thought that she was not going in the interests of Brexit.

Foreign policy is unimportant to the general voter, unless it affects our lives here day to day, which it generally won't. So BJ (if you'll excuse the expression) can be kept on missions to distant corners where he can say what he likes and only receive media coverage here of the terrible gaffs he makes (which predictably weren't long in coming). Even if he does a good job he wins no votes here, he's out of the country much of the time, he can't agitate against the government as he has such a high office of state, his ego and ambitions are assuaged. I think its all about power, getting it and keeping it and keeping it away from other people, not the benefits of the country.

The islanders probably don't want a range of super duper missiles. Which doesn't mean they won't be sold a shipload or two. They could pay in sea shells perhaps.

What did Boris call the President of France ?
C'mon Theresa sack him soon or move him to waste disposal.
He isn't Britain's finest I hope. He's a disgrace. Probably drunk.

Not at all. For every foreign politician he upsets, half of his/her country's voters will be highly amused, as will half his/her political "colleagues", and half his/her country's allies.

All this at no loss of Conservative votes in the UK.

Most importantly to may etc. Boris becomes increasingly seen by their "colleagues" as a very bad choice as an opponent to May for the next occupation of No.10.

They will get their own back in the Brexit negotiations and make themselves out to be the injured party.
The sooner She sacks him the better for us imho.

I think Bonkers Borris may well be PM one day.

He has the people on his side and much like Trump can do no wrong?


Sometimes smart aleks out do them selves, as well may May do!
