They are calling Boris Johnson, a David Cameron with a spine, but without a brain. If the two could get together in a Vita-Mix and blend for three to five minutes, one still couldn’t produce a Winston Churchill. Adding a cigar and a brandy again would fail to move the needle upwards.
Some are remembering the good old days of Theresa May, that courageous Joan of Arc figure who decided to be the first to welcome and embrace Donald Trump to the world stage of international politics, inviting herself to the White House and inviting him to a State visit with the Queen of England.
And how did that giant step into the unknown world of Donald Trump work for Theresa May?

No, the Queen does not wear the Imperial State crown when she performs a caning. And yes, she still carries her purse.
