Boris Johnson: Why would anybody consider it unwise to hand sensitive intelligence information to this man, pictured as he is in one of his more rational moments?

This is one of the rare occasions I find myself in agreement with Boris Johnson.

The Graun‘s headline for this was Boris Johnson denies No 10 tried to block his access to intelligence and I may not be alone in doubting that Mr Johnson has ever had access to intelligence of any kind at all.

Boris Johnson has hit out at claims that Downing Street sought to restrict his access to some sensitive intelligence information when he became foreign secretary in mid-2016.

Rumours have circulated … that Johnson’s access to intelligence briefings was restricted during his time as foreign secretary, an interesting claim given that the role includes responsibility for MI6 and GCHQ.

The BBC report said that in 2016 Downing Street did not want Johnson to be shown a category of sensitive secret intelligence.
