A recent leak revealed that the UK ambassador to the US thinks Donald Trump is a blundering, incompetent dunce. In other words, he thinks what everyone – who isn’t a prominent Tory – already thinks.
But what does the US ambassador to the UK think of our leadership? A fresh leak has revealed exactly that.
The leaks cover a period from 2017 until just yesterday. One of the earlier ones sees the ambassador Hoagie Skunktwerks saying:
It’s difficult to explain how badly this general election is going for Theresa May. A friend described it to me as a drunk ballet dancer trying to pirouette on an oil slick. That’s close, but you also need to imagine the oil being on fire.
The post-election communique read:
A later message said:
Jumping Jesus, she’s made Boris Johnson the foreign secretary! At least I think she made the decision. It’s not clear who’s actually in charge. Oh – and if you don’t know who Johnson is – imagine if an idiot and a scarecrow had a baby, and it was raised by an aristocratic polar bear.
The most recent one said:
Theresa May just resigned? Didn’t she resign months ago? It’s difficult to keep up with these people. She’s certainly not done much leading in a while. But anyway – now the leadership contest begins. They’re going to be queuing up to kiss our asses; I’m going to go get my mine waxed and bleached in preparation!
As idiotic as Trump is, the UK isn’t doing much better. It’s barely even doing the same. It might even be doing worse.
And let’s face it – if there’s one man who can out-incompetent Trump, it’s Boris Johnson.
