The S*n was tonight touting – idiotically – a speech – idiotic – to be made by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in which, to quote the tweeted words of the article’s author, he will ‘launch a blistering attack’ on Jeremy Corbyn for supposedly claiming that Britain’s foreign policy can increase the threat of terrorism in the UK.
So far, so predictable – the Establishment’s ‘smear Corbyn at any cost’ plan is as desperate as it is repetitive.
But Johnson – and the S*n – have ostrich-sized egg on their faces, not to mention apparently very short and selective memories.
A couple of weeks before the General Election, the hapless and hopeless former Defence Secretary Michael Fallon was brilliantly ambushed by Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy.
It was comedy gold:
Fallon’s spluttering outrage at what he thought was a Corbyn ‘pretext’ for terrorism is memorable, because the words turned out to be those of none other than Fallon’s Tory colleague.
One Boris Johnson. Who said:
Isn’t is possible that things like the Iraq War did not create the problem of murderous Islamic fundamentalists, but the war has unquestionably sharpened the resentments felt by such people in this country and given them a new pretext.
Or in other words, Britain’s foreign policy can increase the threat of terrorism in the UK.
Johnson’s incompetence is so great that he will probably press ahead with his ridiculous speech anyway – a clear demonstration of why the Foreign Office is so embarrassed by his nonsense that it tells other governments not to listen to anything he says.
So it’s up to all of us to make sure this video is played everywhere the speech is played or mentioned.
