he British Prime Minister visited Belfast today and tried to present himself as an honest broker.
Shouldn’t be surprised that he hasn’t texted every political party leader in the north, complaining about his own particular problems.
That is, to have betrayed every single one of them. The blame lies solely on his account.
Its border is now in the Irish Sea.
This is embarrassing as he attended his best friends – the DUP – party convention and promised them to their faces that there would be no sea border.
But now he seriously wants to fish it out of Davy Jones’ locker – presumably to throw it over us.
The Colleens can just dance around the crossroads in Monaghan, Cavan and elsewhere as he pleases. As long as Boris gets a lot of likes on his social media Instagram and Thick Tory.
You don’t have to be Agatha Christie to understand that Britain’s Prime Minister loves to stir up trouble… then, as today with his Mission to the Micks, pretends to be an honest broker riding to the rescue.
The latest leak is that the Prince of Partygate is set to introduce legislation in the Houses of Parliament to unilaterally tear up the Northern Ireland Protocol.
He’s leaked something like this before. Proximity to journalists, especially in The Daily Telegraphwhere he worked as a Brussels correspondent – after being fired from The times for telling lies – Johnson has regularly pursued such threats.
And he has previously enraged everyone on this island with leaked “Legacy” plans that would have denied justice to any survivors of trouble henceforth.
With his malevolent form leading to a long list and the embarrassing public exposure of his private comments (on Varadkar: “Why isn’t his name Murphy like the rest of them?”), we seem to be settling for the ultimate betrayal — the would break the trust of almost everyone.
The Prime Minister seems ready to tear up his deal with the EU just so he can play on the gallery and secretly congratulate himself for being so much smarter than everyone else.
His own little private assistant has, of course, disappeared. Jeffrey Donaldson has withdrawn from power-sharing. But he certainly shares responsibility with Boris for bringing the Good Friday Agreement to the brink of collapse.
No wonder the EU might think Borisbekah would seek revenge in court if he went down this route.
Simon Coveney, on the other hand, sounds shriller than ever in his outrage someone in the adult group so shamelessly breaking the rules. (And unlike the WAGs, these rules are actually written down).
Meanwhile, David Frost has been trying to draw attention to himself. The former Brexit minister is carrying the Prime Minister’s bag, so to speak. The draftsmen sigh wearily…
Liz Truss sounds like Simon Coveney, and she sounds like Mistrust too. She may have been referred to as another political friend in WhatsApp messages… but she certainly seems intent on promoting herself.
But it’s really all up to Boris. Bragging, duplicity, bombast, he really enjoys being the center of attention.
And he just doesn’t have the faintest idea what could be coming onto the tracks.
