Boris Johnson has let his country down again, proving that he’s a worse wimp on the international stage than Theresa May.
We already know he has worsened the plight of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other UK citizens imprisoned in Iran.
Now we see once again that he couldn’t give a damn about justice if it means upsetting bigger boys like Donald Trump.
Read it and weep:
The family of Harry Dunn are “absolutely distraught” over comments made by the prime minister, said family spokesman Radd Seiger.
Mr Dunn, 19, died after being hit by a car allegedly driven by Anne Sacoolas, who left the country for the US claiming diplomatic immunity.
Boris Johnson told the BBC that he believed the chances of Mrs Sacoolas being extradited were “very low”.
The comments came on Harry’s mother’s birthday and left her “bitterly upset”.
Mr Seiger told the BBC: “The Dunn family are absolutely on their knees and I am still trying to pick my jaw up off the floor.
“It’s an outrageous set of comments to make from the leader of this country, whose job it is to represent the people.”
That’s right – Boris Johnson’s job is to represent the people – not himself.
But he has a personal stake in getting a (terrible) trade deal with Donald Trump that will end with him trying to force us to eat chlorine-washed chicken that were sick before they died.
This Writer doubts that anybody reading this voted for Johnson. But if you know anybody who did, and they’re as disgusted with this behaviour as the rest of us, just remind them:
You voted for this.

This seems to be the future Tory approach. Creep and cringe to the American “bigger boys” while acting tough with the “small boys” like Iraq and Iran. Especially if the big boys are in the lead.
Meanwhile, there will be lots of expensive “projects” to make it look like Johnson is actually doing something .
HS2 maybe, or talk of moving the House of Lords to the North. Impressive gestures, just not practical action to overcome regional inequality.
This foreign policy looks a lot like life at a top public school (though I cannot confirm this from personal experience.) while the national policy resembles BoJob of old. We all recall the London “Garden Bridge” (never happened), the new airport in the Thames estuary (never happened) and the plan for a new English Channel Bridge(never happened).
A bit similar to Donald Trump with his “Wall on the Mexican border “(never happened) and his practice of issuing “Executive Orders” of all kinds , grandly displaying his signature on impressive-looking documents to make it look like he has actually done something.
If we had a truly functioning mainstream media , they would be having a field-day with all this nonsense already. But we don’t ,so they won’t.
PS. I actually think that a London Garden Bridge, freely open to the public , would be a great idea. And a new bridge over the Channel would also be brilliant. But Johnson is in charge , so they won’t happen.
