Boris Johnson lashes out at Northern Ireland backstop threat to Union

Boris Johnson lashes out at Northern Ireland backstop threat to Union

May has rejected this as unacceptable, but the two sides are deadlocked as time runs out to agree a divorce deal before Brexit in March next year. Regardless of his intentions, he can't be happy with the result.

Former Army officer and chairman of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee Tom Tugendhat graphically described the aftermath of a suicide bomb that had gone off near his office in Helmand province, Afghanistan.

A former advisor to David Cameron believes that the character of Boris Johnson matters to an "important section" of the electorate who wouldn't want these characteristics in their Prime Minister. "If it isn't now, I will make sure it is later".

"We look like a seven-stone weakling being comically bent out of shape by a 500lb gorilla".

And he condemned her vow to do whatever it takes to avoid border checks in Ireland, saying it was "insanity" and left Britain open to "perpetual political blackmail".

The former two-time Mayor of London, who was ad hoc leader of the Vote Leave group during the European Union referendum, slated the Government's "utterly feeble" performance in the Brexit negotiations so far, describing the Remain-supporting Prime Minister's approach as "Yes sir, no sir, three bags full sir" in a Mail on Sunday column.

Sammy Wilson last night backed former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson over his shocking claim that Theresa May's Brexit strategy had put the United Kingdom "in a suicide vest" and handed the detonator to Brussels.

"The carnage was disgusting, limbs and flesh hanging from trees and bushes".

In July, he tweeted that a British diver who helped with the rescue of a Thai soccer team trapped in a cave was a " pedo guy ". This follows other bad news for Tesla , and Musk coming under fire for things including what he says on Twitter .

The Sunday Express reports an ex-KGB officer who claims Russian Federation told him to kill dissidents in a similar way as was seen in the attack on the Skripals in Salisbury.

"Some need to grow up".

"Comparing the Prime Minister to that isn't amusing".

I'm stunned at the nature of this attack.

"There is no justification for such an outrageous, inappropriate and hurtful analogy", Minister of State for International Development Alistair Burt added. What has received considerable scorn, however, is the language he used.

After a weekend dominated by coverage of Boris Johnson's views on the UK's withdrawal from the European Union, and his tangled personal life, the former junior Brexit minister Steve Baker used an interview to mark 200 days before departure to argue May must take a different approach.

But in a further indication of the toxic relations within the Tory party, Brexit-backer Zac Goldsmith responded to Sir Alan by saying: "There are a number of possible motives behind this tweet, but given its author, we can be certain "principles" aren't one of them".

In the meantime, grab your popcorn and watch the Tories tearing their own party to pieces. It's doubtful Johnson can do the same; he really just doesn't have the stomach for it.
