Great front page of the Mirror this morning showing BoJo dangling from that zip wire with the headline “Dear World ..... Sorry!!”

After all the serious stuff we’ve endured these last months Theresa has certainly given us a great laugh with this. Foreign Secretary FFS!! What a F’ckin joke.

So when Obama said we’d be “back of the queue” after Brexit – did he have an inkling it would be the same clown that slurred him as “a part Kenyan President”? What about the commonwealth with “watermelon smiles” or the “picaninies” or his humorous limerick about the Turkish president having sex with a goat ?

Have a look at Angela Eagles reaction when she hears – priceless. I’ve also seen a great clip of the US secretary trying and failing badly to keep a straight face when told the news as he blathers something about the relationship being more important than personalities.

We are a laughing stock.

Boris's appointment hasn't gone down well abroad

The only foreign politician who welcomed the news seems to be ex-Aussie PM Tony Abbott, and he's one of the few politicians going more offensive than Boris.

And Boris's French counterpart (Jean-Marc Ayrault) has said this of Boris today:

"But you know very well what his style and method are. During the campaign, you know he told a lot of lies to the British people and now it is him who has his back against the wall. He is up against it to defend his country and also so that the relationship with Europe is clear."

Where exactly does the job of Brexit-fixer-in-Chief end and the role of the Foreign office begin?

Surely TM has missed a trick & could have given the former position to Michael Gove – now that would have been hilarious seeing him work with his “old friend” Boris again. Like Laurel & Hardy squabbling over the piano removal – put ‘em in bowler hats and baggy suits & you’d never know the difference. :funny: Come on Theresa you’ve gone this far – now finish the job!

Well, as David Davis is also taking legal action against the Govt in the European Court over Theresa May's plans for bulk collection of communications data, he might need a bit of help from Boris sorting out some Brexit from time to time...

Woah! there Quinny. Hang on a minute mate.

Are you really saying a major Brexit campaigner was/is using the EU court to get an over-zealous & totally illiberal British law overturned? ..... and then the architect of said law has now put him in charge of negotiating our exit from the EU ???

WTF? This just gets better & better :facepalm: .........No, No surely I’ve misunderstood?

Boris lost his motor this morning. Being the boss at MI6 has certainly sharpened up his act!

Interesting re-shuffle as a whole - John Pienaar saying it was more brutal than the night of the sharp knives. Left or right leaning, we should be hoping for a period of stability now.

...apart from those who don't like the referendum result and are palpably willing everything to fall apart perhaps :roll:

I would imagine there are plenty of those who like the referendum result who are concerned by the latest set of political antics.

How so. From her lack of words during the referendum and from her words since the referendum, "Brexit means Brexit"...she's gonna Brexit.

I was referring the broader political scene. Governance doesn't stop at Brexit.
