    This case alone makes Johnson unfit to be an MP, let alone a minister...and if he is PM? God help us!

    That poor woman. I cannot get my head around what she is going through. Her family must be distraught.

    *Sees a story about a woman being chained to a bed in Iran*

    *Sees criticism of Boris Johnson*

    Erm... what about Iran?

    I guess a lot of us expect Iran to treat Britons badly... But we all expect the Foreign Secretary to read his brief and not give our enemies more ammunition to make this citizen's life and situation worse through his incompetence.

    I mean, was it so hard for him to get it right?

    This case is fairly typical of Johnson's attitude. Rather then briefing himself on the details.of the case, he thinks he can bluff and bluster from a position of ignorance based on arrogance, and sod the consequences.

    There's a lot of it about. People seem to lap it up... given the lack of a better alternative.

    I doubt whether he's ever held himself accountable for anything or anybody in his entire life.

    I doubt whether he ever will.

    If he makes a mess of being PM he will just walk away and leave it to others to sort his messes out like he has done his whole "career".

    If the Iranians hadn't seized on the Foreign Secretary's remarks they would have found some other excuse to abuse this poor woman.

    He belongs to a smallish group that only feels it necessary to interact with peers within the group. Unfortunately it is the rest of us who are the pieces they use for their games.
