Joris Luyendijk really doesn’t understand the British

With a liar like Boris Johnson as foreign secretary how can Europe trust Britain?

Well, part of it is that the Foreign Secretary is a diplomat. You know, one of those employed to lie to foreigners?

But this is more important:

What kind of country would appoint a man such as Boris Johnson to such an important office?

Important? It’s the office which deals with foreigners. How can that be important?

  1. It seems these Remainiac scum have a limitless pool of arrogance and deceit to draw on.

    While I have no regard for Doris Johnson as he is first amongst self-servers, it is galling to hear an arch liar and traitor liker Joris (perhaps he is jealous cos Johnson got the less silly entry in the “oris” sweepstakes) calling others as liars.

    While an article slagging Doris is not enough for a T&S on the House (of Commons) so to speak, his previous record of pronuncimentio more than qualifies him. Plus the extra bonus of “assaulting an officer..” charges etc.

    And a tasering— using special “green” tasers of course. Wouldn’t want a Guardian stooge to be damaging the environment.

  2. Tim, yes i’d wish Joris would open up about what’s really going on inside a “european anglophile”‘s head.

    A politician said I don’t think we owe anything to EU negotiators who’ve said “Pay up- it’s the law”. This somehow has undermined his faith in the British rule of law. I don’t think that means what you think it means Joris.

  3. President Trump put it rather eloquently in his speech to the UN on Tuesday:

    As president of the United States, I will always put America first. Just like you, as the leaders of your countries, will always and should always put your countries first.

  4. Otto von Bismarck, perhaps the greatest statesman produced by Europe since Metternich, went to war with France by whipping up public outrage by the deliberate misquotation of French diplomatic cables.

    That is, he lied to the German voters about what the French said.

    But let’s look on the bright side, at least Boris Johnson is not a Vichy-supporting German collaborator who went through life as if the laws did not apply to him – as they didn’t – habitually lying to his family every day. Like, say, Francois Mitterrand.

    The French declared war on Prussia, didn’t they? I.e. the other way around.
