    In the very first post of this thread I can go straight to Godwin’s Law: Boris Johnson compares Russian World Cup to Hitler’s 1936 Olympics (Guardian).

    Next.

    There is no eloquence, dignity nor wisdom emanating from BoJo. A very short thread.

    I think in the example of BoJo it should be called Fcukwit's Law...

    There's still time for him to be the 21st century's King Cnut.

    Please let's not give the loathsome self serving fool any more publicity. Starved of publicity he can become the inconsequential nobody he so richly deserves to be.

    linnfomaniac83 I bet you can’t wheelie a unicycle!

    It's not very often that I'm properly amused at a thread title but this got me!:D

    Ha! When I saw the thread title, I thought,”it’s gonna be a short thread”! Who was the wallflower on the Conservative benches who said “Boris is a character. We need more of them in politics”?

    Actually a Labour MP, Ian Austin, made the comparison first and Boris agreed with him. In these days of political acrimony it's good to see some cross-party consensus for a change.

    Underestimate Johnson at your peril

    He is the British answer to Donald Trump.

    AS Corbyn said at PMQs Boris, by his vile utterances, demeans his Office.

    Are we to read your comment as some sort of concurrence with de Pfeiffel's opinion that the country that lost some 25 million of it's people actually fighting and defeating Nazi Germany is in fact comparable to Hitler's regime?

    No. You should read it that, in this specific case, I do agree with what he actually said rather than your interpretation of what he said. Boris is an atrocious diplomat, but even a stopped clock is right twice a day.

    I said something similar on PFM around the Iran/teacher incident and that was bad, but after this one I think he's gone too far.

    Can't we test out this Novichok theory, by releasing a statement to the fact he is a former Russian double agent?

    He’s probably the King of Russia or something if you go back far enough with genealogy.
