This is what Boris Johnson wouldn’t condemn – and another reason he has to go

It’s no good people saying Theresa May is a weak prime minister because she won’t sack Boris Johnson; his own weakness as foreign secretary means he compliments her perfectly.

Look at the Catalan independence referendum:

The Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson refused to condemn widespread police violence against civilians as they sought to cast their votes in Catalonia’s unsanctioned independence referendum yesterday.

Responding to the crisis, Mr Johnson said: “Obviously we are very anxious about any violence. We hope that things will sort themselves out, though clearly you have to be sensitive to the constitutional proprieties.

    The eu has supported the Spanish governments attack on its own people despite it clearly breaching article 7 of the not the constitution Lisbon treaty, so basically all Boris was doing was actually reflecting the eu’s position on this group, which were not the Police, but the civil guard, attacking the polling stations.

    Boris the clown is a globalist and a grand supporter of takeover powers. I bet he wished he could have flogged their jack booted police force his water cannons.
