Boris is an excellent choice, if you must have a Conservative government.

He represents some assurance that people’s will – Brexit – will be carried out.

He also puts a rather happy and chatty face on Britain’s foreign affairs.

And has proved an astute observer in private.

He once called George Bush: “a cross-eyed Texan warmonger, unelected, inarticulate, who epitomizes the arrogance of American foreign policy.”

He also said, deadly accurately, of  Hillary Clinton: “She’s got dyed blond hair and pouty lips, and a steely blue stare, like a sadistic nurse in a mental hospital.”

By the way, some of the press, especially certain columnists at The Guardian, is going after the appointment of Boris with genuine malice. That fact instinctively confirms me in my view that his appointment is a good one.
