Former Mayor of London Boris Johnson appears to have stuck his foot init again.
After noting it would be “incredible” if the EU decided to impose trade tariffs on Britain after we has left, Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, said that “If Mr Hollande wants to administer punishment beatings to anybody who chooses to escape, in the manner of some world war two movie, I don’t think that is the way forward.”
Naturally A spokeswoman for Theresa May has tried to down play and brush off Boris' comments claiming “He was making a theatrical comparison to some of those evocative WWII movies”

You would expect "Don't mention the war" to be pretty much rule #1 in the UK foreign office. It's not exactly going to win him, and by extension the UK as a whole, any favours is it?
Yet here we are. A comedian representing our foreign interests, taking the mickey out of a country we've been allied with for over a century. May's government are making a mockery out of themselves every day Boris remains in office.
