Please, Theresa May, for the sake of our country’s future, sack Boris Johnson. His continued presence as foreign secretary is a national humiliation. The influence of a leftwing Guardian columnist over the prime minister is, to put it mildly, rather limited. It is up to Conservative members and supporters to come to the conclusion that Johnson’s continued tenure as Britain’s representative to the wider world is a risk to the future of this country.
May knew the score and only appointed him as foreign secretary to manage the internal schism of her chronically divided party.
Ah, some number of other people do. Democracy sure is a bitch. And do note that this is the Owen Jones who thinks that the economy should be more democratised. Although perhaps he’s got some plan to make sure that people only get to vote for people or policies which he approves of?
