With his usual fairness, Boris says he does not wish to see any “Russiaphobia” in this country. As late as Apri last year, Boris was reaching out to Putin over Syria, saying “It doesn’t have to be this way!”
But the attempted murder of a British citizen and his daughter, which Skripal now is, was a step too far. Continue reading
Mike Pompeo, America’s new top diplomat is a rock solid Trump man. Ex Director of the CIA, he is will have the President’s back, and there is a natural understanding betwen the two. He admires the President’s ability to do things his own way.

As first glance quiet, modest and shy, Claire Louise has an impressive range of talents, every one of them is linked to service – of people or her country. Continue reading
Yesterday’s interview with Boris Johnson was a trainwreck for Susanna Reid and Ben Shepherd, they got every fact wrong. Come back Piers Morgan, unlike Susanna, he researches his interviews first.
