The UK Prime Minister is rattling his sabre in the direction of Russia while he dances in a desperate attempt to save his job.
‘We need to make it very clear to the Kremlin, to Russia, that that would be a disastrous step.’
The government has ruled out sending combat troops, but Mr Johnson said Britain is ‘leading on creating a package of economic sanctions’ against Russia and he would be speaking to international allies later.
‘We also need to get a message that invading Ukraine, from a Russian perspective, is going to be a painful, violent and bloody business,’ he said.
He’s dancing because the Tory establishment’s ability to bury the fallout from Partygate appears to be failing.
Allies of the PM say he is still ‘determined’ to ride out the crisis.
‘He’s feeling determined,’ one MP loyal to Johnson told The Times.
‘He genuinely believes that he didn’t break any rules and that he was going to the garden [on May 20, 2020] to say thank you.’
But an anonymous source told the Telegraph they would be ‘very surprised’ if Mr Johnson was still in power by the end of the week.
‘Met officers have spoken to Sue Gray now, as you would expect, and have been able to provide a lot of information,’ the source said. ‘Put it this way, if Boris Johnson is still Prime Minister by the end of the week, I’d be very surprised.’
UPDATE: Johnson is beyond toast at this point. The idiot actually had a birthday party thrown for him by his wicked evil witch-wife. He’s going to have a tough time explaining that he also didn’t know his birthday party was a party.
ITV News understands Boris Johnson had a birthday party during the first lockdown in 2020 despite the rules forbidding social gatherings indoors at the time. It’s alleged that the prime minister’s wife, Carrie Johnson, helped organise a surprise get-together for him on the afternoon of 19 June just after 2pm. Up to 30 people are said to have attended the event in the Cabinet Room after Boris Johnson returned from an official visit to a school in Hertfordshire.
