Boris passes the British baton
Sir, – Foreign secretaries such as Lord Carrington, Anthony Eden and Viscount Halifax represented the Briton once encountered by Europeans: refined, elegant with impeccable manners en route to the slopes of St Moritz or the classical sites of Greece and Rome.
The unlamented buffoon Boris Johnson did the same for their successors: the vile stag parties, thuggish football supporters and hordes of obese, tattooed holidaymakers lying in a drunken stupor on the sands of Mediterranean like a vast school of beached whales.
