If you are right it is at Britain's expense.

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!

It's very easy to underestimate Boris. Remember, we are comparing him to the standard Foreign Office product whose main aim in life is not to offend anybody. I believe there is a large body of people who quite admire Boris's stance but are unwilling to make their views known too publicly. That's why the pollsters have been wrong so often.

It seems to me that Theresa and Boris are doing the old "nice man/nasty man" routine that used to work so well in interrogations before the days of waterboarding. I note that Theresa hasn't slapped him down and I believe she has said something along the lines of that he was just making a perfectly reasonable point. So I think she either supports him or thinks he is doing less harm than if she gives him the sack. Either way, being overly nice and grovelling (like what Dave did) to the EU will, I think, achieve little of benefit for the UK.
