Unmissable: “It’s not a 2 Ronnies sketch”. #BoZo meltdown worse than ANY in GE17

There were some awful meltdowns by politicians during the recent General Election campaign. Diane Abbott’s was probably the most famous – because it was pushed to a probably racist and misogynist degree by broadcasters and press in an attempt to damage Labour. But Ms Abbott was ill with diabetes and her brief confusion was a classic example of low blood sugar, unsurprising after 6 straight interviews that morning.

Even worse – but less publicised (except on this blog) were the multiple ‘car-crash’ appearances by Michael Fallon and the inability of Chancellor Philip Hammond to get one simple budget figure correct.

But the complete implosion of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson eclipses any of them.

It eclipses all of them together.

Johnson spoke (if you’re generous enough to call it that) to the BBC’s Eddie Mair after the Queen’s Speech and attempted to portray it as less than a disaster so bad that it even ruffled the Queen’s composure.

At least, we think that’s what he was trying to do. It was hard to tell:

Johnson – a national embarrassment as Foreign Secretary – has made a career out of playing the buffoon, but this wasn’t playing – or buffoonery.

It was a meltdown that should end any notion that he’s a future leadership prospect – and the terrible Queen’s Speech he imploded over should end any notion that Theresa May is a current one.

  1. Indeed a total and complete national embarrassment and an utter disgrace as a politician. Perhaps we should ban people who have been to Eton from becoming politicians 😉

  2. Of course, the ‘impartial’ bbc gave the story a cursory run….but then had no following comments, last night.

    Even Mair (surprisingly, given his ‘nasty piece of work’ interview) let him off the hook from what I heard…

  3. It wont reach the general media public, but I did hear it on the radio late last night. Was he drunk, or having a fit/stroke, or just displaying his total incompetence and the government’s lack of honest or acceptable policy???

  4. | I have watching Politics since my arrival in this country since 1975. So much change. Recently PM May shows more and more her incapability as a leader and don’t seem knowing what she is talking about. She made the country unstable and showed as a weak leader yet keep saying she can fix iand make the country stronger. She failed many things not only PM but her previous role as Home Secretary resulted in dessert incidents. Sooner she goes better for the Country and safer. She is mad cannot trust her words.

  5. BJs behaviour with Ian Lavery in an interview was also extremely peculiar. Seemed as if he was drunk or having a manic episode. Suspect he needs help and not to be foreign secretary.
