JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: BORIS JOHNSON – BRITAIN’S FOREIGN MINISTER AND LONG FAMOUS AS AN AMBITIOUS BUFFOON – OUTDOES HIMSELF WITH HIS PUBLIC LIBEL OF PUTIN – “GOING ONE BETTER” AND MAKING HIMSELF PATHETIC   Leave a comment

COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RUSSIA INSIDER

 

“Senior British politicians continue to lead in the buffoonery sweepstakes heading into the weekend”

“Boris Johnson Accuses Putin of Murder”

 

It would puzzle any clear-thinking person, but you have to look back on Boris’s career to realize this kind of stupidity is not unusual for him.

His has had many rocky experiences and said many controversial and, indeed, untrue things.

And, from the start, he and Theresa May had real differences. They do not particularly like each other.

She only appointed him because her own hold on the Conservative Party is less than firm, and she needed support from his faction.

He only serves under her because he has strong ambitions to take her place one day.

I do suspect he is viewed by many Conservatives as too erratic ever to enjoy enough support towards achieving his ultimate ambition.

But he proves his loyalty to her leadership – something in doubt in the past – by this kind of echoing of her insupportable charges. He tries even “going one better,” in keeping with his reputation for the unexpected and even outrageous.

He’s actually a rather pathetic figure.
