Boris Johnson, by his refusal to support Sir Kim Darroch, has shown that he is unfit to hold any government position. But he is going to be prime minister of the United Kingdom because his electorate are 160,000 Conservative Party members who support Johnson as their sort of man: a disloyal “distracted, agenda-free buffoon.”
There was collusion, but it was between the US Government (then under Obama) and the UK Government (under Cameron and then May), directed against Trump, and not actually between candidate Trump and the Russian Government, directed against Clinton, Eric Zuesse writes.
Will this “scandal” have any affect on US-British relations? No, none besides the Brits having to relieve Darroch of his post (which they have already done) and possibly writing an apology on fancy stationary with one of those signet pressed wax seals on it to be extra dandy.
