Leading the world on the Ukraine crisis? Just another lie. Johnson isn’t even in the room

As Boris Johnson clings on to power in the face of revelation after revelation of evidence of his pathological lying, he has been hoping for the chance to strut the world stage pretending to solve the extremely tense and dangerous Russia/Ukraine situation. Indeed, he and Rees-Mogg have unashamedly used Ukraine as a shield against the tidal wave of justified opprobium and disgust that have come his way as a consequence of Partygate and now the animal airlift lies.

He is a man who will say or do anything to save his own political skin. Anything.

We’re being fed the line that his resignation in the middle of an international crisis would be potentially cataclysmic for the western world. The hope of peace rests with him, don’t you know? Britain Trump. The faux Churchill.

As if.

Distraction. Diversion. Delusion. Above all. lies.

Today, Russia and Ukraine held talks in the Elysee Palace in Paris. The discussions were attended by representatives from Germany and France. An unconditional observance of the 2014 ceasefire has been agreed and there will be further talks in Berlin with all four countries present. The UK was not and will not be represented. Literally not in the room. At all. And why would we be, with a government as corrupt and untrustworthy as ours; a government run by a party funded by Russians.

But, sure, Johnson is at the forefront of negotiations.

This man is an unreformed and unreformable liar. Why is he still prime minister?

Oh, and in case you missed it, here’s the Afghan evacuation lie:

Boris Johnson said last month that reports he had intervened to prioritise the evacuation of Pen Farthing’s animals were “complete nonsense”.

Emails just published, from the Foreign Office, show that is exactly what he did. #PMQs

“That is complete nonsense.”

Boris Johnson’s spokesman on the 7th December said that it was “entirely untrue” to say the PM had intervened and “at no point did the Prime Minister intervene,” on the Pen Farthing case.

He added: “We’ve always prioritised people over animals.”

It is way past time that this man, so singularly unfit for public office, was sacked and faced the full force of the law.
