Our new foreign secretary has hit the ground running and headed over to the French embassy to help them celebrate Bastille Day , his delivery seems to be typical Johnson but the peasants seem in the mood for revolt , fitting considering the day.

He just had to mention union.

In a speech that was greeted by some boos, Johnson told the Bastille Day reception that the UK vote to reject the EU was like the sans-culottes uprising against the monarchy in the French Revolution. He said: “The sans-culottes popular uprising was against a stifling bureaucratic ancient regime whose democratic credentials had become very far from obvious.” He continued: “We can all agree vox populi is vox Dei, in other words the people then, as now, must be respected.”

Then Johnson clarified his position

“We are not leaving Europe. It would be geographically, physically, culturally, emotionally and historically impossible for the UK to leave Europe. That is not our destiny. That is not our future. “The British people had asked for a new relationship with the EU and that is what the UK will seek. The UK will intensify its relationship with its friends across the channel at an inter-governmental level. The UK will now forge a new global identity”.

Brexit light , you know it and I know it.

The timing of this thread is beyond ironic.

Then there’s Borin’ Johnson making a twat out of himself again.

"I want a divorce, but let's stay friends afterwards". That's a "new relationship".
