    Boris is head of Britain's Diplomatic Service.

    Prior to starting the most important negotiations the country has seen in 70 years, he suggested an EU leader is brutal and compared him to a Nazi.

    His comments have been described as "abhorrent and deeply unhelpful"

    Downing Street was also dragged into the embarrassing row, being forced to defend Mr Johnson by saying the remarks were "theatrical" adding "he was in no way suggesting that anyone was a Nazi".

    It's possible Boris is a twat.

    Simple question surely?
    Either he compared an eu leader to a nazi or he didn't. You claim he did.
    So which nazi is it?

    Or is this more of your propaganda as I suspect?

    Seemingly this...
    "I think if Mr Hollande wants to administer punishment beatings to anybody who chooses to escape rather in the manner of some ww2 movie then I don't think this is the way forward.."

    Translates into this...
    "he suggested an EU leader is brutal and compared him to a Nazi."

    In jd's world.
    Typical LWR propaganda.

    Yes, quite disingenuous by JohnD, the word Nazi is not used by Boris Johnson, even if his words were antagonistic.
     
  11. It has been reported in a few papers. You guys could look at the title of the newspaper article too.
    Also, May's response: May’s spokeswoman strongly defended the foreign secretary and insisted “he was not suggesting anyone was a Nazi”.
    JohnD wasn't the one who solely made up the Nazi connection. Sounds like the press having fun tbh.

    Our FO Bozza is an absolute gem. You have to admire those that put him in charge also.
    The RWR love him though.(y)

    I wonder who Bozza thought he was referring to when stipulating punishment beatings and WWII?
    I suppose he could have been comparing him to a Japanese soldier or a Russian for that matter. I think many would interpret it as a Nazi though. What do you think Rog?
