Would it be possible for anybody who’s said what he has said in the past to deal with the question in a polished — or even barely competent — way?

Is the situation not so much that he is rubbish but that his leader is rubbish in appointing him to that job?

The idea of BoJo following in the footsteps of Lord Palmerston is mind-boggling – it’s a sign of how far the Empire has fallen.

Assuming T May isn’t rubbish (and that could be a big assumption – I’d say she got where she is by looking serious and not giving interviews), the only thing I can think of is that BoJo is being lined up to make a speech in a few years which starts……

“I have tried my very best and I assure you this is the best deal we can get. Things will get better in the next 30 years.”

It’s like the Tories are giving him a punishment beating.

Yes, and in a way that links to Tombuktu’s point too, that this is a very public shaming.

Remember all the talk about Brian Cowen’s intelligence when he took over?

Talk, yes. Intelligence, not so obvious…

Here’s an example though, and if you google ‘Brian Cowen’s, intelligence’, you’ll get an embarrassment of encomia to his genius.

One distasteful aspect of that scene was the way in which the American journalists hit Johnson with ferociously tough questions in a tone they would never ever use with an establishment American politician. I have no sympathy for Johnson, but there is something vile about that kind of kiss-up-kick-down US mainstream reporter.

Fair point. Be good if some British reporters returned the favour. Or even if the US journalists were a bit better at doing it in the first place.

US pols simply refuse to go on tv shows with anchors/hosts/panelists that have asked them hard questions before.

Chris Todd accidentally told the truth, confirming what had been obvious for over a decade, when he was promoted to Meet the Press.

I mean, that’s if there were any left that would ask a hard question, or repeat it until answered.

Very telling when Kerry tells the reporter that the US ambassador to the EU and UN went to Oxford with Bojo…
