Sack this oaf to­day

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - NEWS -

It’s un­for­give­able that the worst For­eign Sec­re­tary in gen­er­a­tions should refuse to apol­o­gise for a blun­der that may con­demn a British mother to five ex­tra years in an Ira­nian jail.

Pol­i­tics for him is a jolly game – all japes and ruf­fling that blond hair in the hope he can laugh his way into Down­ing Street.

How­ever, for in­car­cer­ated Nazanin Zaghar­irat­cliffe and her fam­ily, it is deadly se­ri­ous.

She may be a pawn in some Ira­nian power game. But John­son’s foot-in-mouth stu­pid­ity in wrongly sug­gest­ing she was train­ing jour­nal­ists was a free gift to the regime in Tehran.

The oaf then went on to praise Don­ald Trump after vow­ing to boy­cott New York to avoid meet­ing him.

John­son isn’t go­ing to quit. He is too am­bi­tious, too ar­ro­gant and too proud.

So May must sack him at once for the sake of weep­ing Nazanin... and to re­store Bri­tain’s rep­u­ta­tion in the world.
