Boris Johnson: Nothing to say. Is that better than talking nonsense?

The mainstream news is reporting that the UK government is denying access to Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, even to members of their family – and also that Boris Johnson is refusing requests for a meeting with the Russian ambassador.

Some may be angered by the denial of access to Skripal family members. I am not one of those people.

This is a highly-charged moment between the UK and Russia. It would be unreasonable to believe the Russian government is not putting pressure on Skripal family members within its influence – such as cousin Viktoria – to exert similar pressure on Sergei and Yulia to act in the interests of that country. Pressure of a sinister nature, that is.

Rather than allow this to happen, possibly endangering more members of the Skripal family, it would be better to deny them access, thereby making it impossible for the Russian government to blame them for failing to persuade (coerce) their family members into doing and saying what Russia wants.

Boris Johnson’s reason for refusing to meet the Russian ambassador is obvious, of course: He has nothing to say.

All the UK’s claims about Russian involvement in the Salisbury poisonings have collapsed as evidence has mounted up against them.

If Mr Johnson were to meet the Russian ambassador, he would have nothing to say but “sorry”.

And Boris Johnson is far too arrogant ever to say that to Johnny Foreigner. He’s a racist, remember?
