Even though his ancestor was briefly part of the Ottoman Turkish government I suspect the well-upholstered Boris is merely an almost six-foot stool…
Love your work Ian.
This Matt Kenyon graphic accompanying Jonathan Freedland's Guardian story -- "With Boris Johnson in charge of diplomacy, Britain has insulted the world" -- sums up the Bojo situation perfectly.
It's been a helluva few days. Brexit and the Bojo fiasco, Trump creeping ahead of Hillary in US polls, bitter UK Labour Party infighting, a new variation on lone-wolf terrorism resulting in mass deaths in Nice and now a military coup underway in Turkey. It feels like Western stability is going to hell in a handbasket.
Honestly, if you have any interest in European and world politics, it feels like the western world as we know it is crashing down in a big heap at the moment.
Ah, but we're as far away from there as we could get.
