The cozy relationship between the Trump administration and Boris Johnson was doused with cold water last week by Nancy Pelosi who warned that Congress would not pass any proposed US-UK trade deal if Britain proceeded with its no-deal Brexit.
The visit of Boris Johnson to Belfast this week reveals once again the mixture of frivolity and ignorance with which the Brexiteers approach Northern Ireland.
With the unscrupulous Johnson as prime minister and Britain’s post-Brexit desperation for American economic favors, the British bulldog will not merely be attentively hearing its master’s voice. It will be snapping and yapping to please too.
Now that Boris Johnson has become prime minister of Britain, look for him to make common cause with US National Security Adviser John Bolton and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu in reckless adventurism and gambles that will endanger the peace of the world.
