Boris Johnson Leaked Recording: "I Am Increasingly Admiring Donald Trump. There's Method In His Madness"

Britain's foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, told a closed-door gathering of conservatives that he had become "increasingly admiring of Donald Trump" and that he had "become more and more convinced that there is a method in his madness," according to a recording of the discussion which lasted over an hour obtained by BuzzFeed.

Imagine Trump doing Brexit,” Johnson said to the group of 20 Torries. “There’d be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos. Everyone would think he’d gone mad. But actually you might get somewhere. It’s a very, very good thought.”

Johnson's comments at the Institute of Directors to the right-wing group, Conservative Way Forward, comes as pressure mounts on UK Prime Minister Theresa May from within Parliament over Brexit.

The UK is set to leave the European Union in march, however internal strife within the government has left Britain's post-Brexit relationships with the rest of Europe in limbo. 

Johnson remarked that May would soon become "much more combative with Brussels," per BuzzFeed. 

Speaking about Brexit, Johnson told the Tory activists the talks are approaching a “moment of truth”.

I’m not going to hide it from you,” Johnson told the activists. “There is an argument going on.”

Brexit will happen, “and I think it will be irreversible”, Johnson said. But he added: “The risk is that it will not be the one we want.” -BuzzFeed

You’ve got to face the fact there may now be a meltdown. OK? I don’t want anybody to panic during the meltdown," he said. "It’s going to be all right in the end."

Johnson also told the group that there's a high probability of Britain ending up with an agreement which stands in violation of the Brexiteers' "red lines," which would keep it "locked in orbit around the EU, in the customs union, and to a large extent still in the single market." 

"So not really having full freedom on our trade policy, our tariff schedules, and not having freedom with our regulatory framework either."

That outcome was being pushed particularly by the Treasury, which Johnson said was “basically the heart of Remain”. It would mean the UK had left the EU without taking back control over its own affairs.

Clarifying his own red lines, Johnson said he would be willing to accept staying close to the EU beyond March 2019, when the UK formally leaves the EU, but will not budge when it comes to the final terms of the future relationship.

I will be prepared to compromise over time, but I will not compromise over the destination,” the foreign secretary told the activists.

The Remainers in government are so worried about the potential for short-term disruption after Brexit that they’re blind to the long-term benefits, Johnson said.

Tommy Robinson thinks Israel is GREAT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jys7jbVccrU

Boris Johnson's a cunt but Donald Trump is cucking the entire Western world. You want MAGA, yeah well why don't you fight your European allies whilst cosying up to Israel and Saudi Arabia. The ONLY foreign leader Trump has any respect for is Netenyahu. Think about that shit for a minute.

To MAGA will he build a wall? Will he stop foreign wars? No. He'll slap tariffs on Canadians/Germans/Brits. Forget the billions of free taxpayer dollars they hand over to the jews in Israel. America is the MOST cucked nation on the planet.

I think it's over. America is no longer a white anglo-saxon nation. It's on it's own with Israel. The quicker Europe moves closer to Russia the better.  Hail Putin... .and fuck Trump.

If people want to make American great again, or if people want to make Europe great again, or if Britain wants to make Britain great again, etc., take back the manufacturing jobs that were given away to slave labor far eastern countries with the help and even blessing of each regions sclerotic social system and non-responsive, or more accurately, anti-citizen governments.  The citizens themselves, the one's hit the hardest, many of whom kept voting for politicians that sponsored this decades long debacle, were so stupid as to assume saving a few bucks on a slave labor foreign made product would raise their standard of living. (Hint: It did the opposite.). While they're at it they could reduce taxes to allow for the manufacturing sector to be competitive.  Why not go as far as zero taxation for a decade or two for those sectors of these economies that have absolutely decimated.  There's nothing to lose in this regard because 99% of various sectors of the economy in the US no longer exist.  Unions might even wake up and allow reasonable salaries instead of being so anti-domestic manufacturing-to-the-point-that-foreign-manufacturing-is-the-easiest-way-to-make-things.  

This is but one of a long list of changes that would help promote business in the western world.

The EU is NEVER going to agree to Brexit, they will continue to delay and obfuscate. May doesn't have the balls to do anything, she's an appeaser, not a leader. Trump would tell the EU to fuck off, start negotiating trade deals with countries around the globe and basically do what is in the best interests of the UK. That's the difference between a Trump and these limp wristed pussies everywhere else.

I'm surprised this mop-headed pedophile freak managed to remove his cock from an eleven-year-old's ass long enough to make a coherent statement. Hey Boris, why don't you do something about the pakistani muslims who are raping your nation's young girls wholesale and are on the verge of taking over your country?

MAGA necessarily implies you have to get something done - accomplished.  Trump is doing those things.  Just like golf, in the end nobody will much care how you do it - its how many you took to do it.  This is all that matters.

exartizo Mon, 06/11/2018 - 17:46 Permalink

More fucking politicians that can't get anything done, just like the US Congress, only pastier.

What good are politicians that can't get anything done for the people?

When politicians WILLFULLY REFUSE to implement the Clear Will Of The British People they are acting in TREASON.

Line them up and shoot all of them. Then get some politicians that can get something done in the UK, Like Brexit.

So what's the point of Brexit ?

This guy gets it.

The elite are counting on Brexit happening in half steps; always half of what's left, never reaching the end.

Flip the money-changers tables and let them know you don't need them.

What he is describing is Trump's way of approaching the negotiating table and instead of sitting down, he turns it over. Then asks everyone turn it back over Without any preconceived assumptions.

Starting 'the deal' with a blank slate. By passing all normal protocols, and decorum.

Look at the changes in north Korea from election on. Nuclear war into disarmament.

Europe different deal different tactic. We'll do tariffs on All your shit and ban benz's

Chaos into possibly better status quo.

Let's see how it works

Being "admired" by Bozo Boris is a sure-fire 'Kiss Of Death' - not to mention a "sore ass" - if ever there was one!

More likely though, the fat-fck is angling to get invited to an "all you can eat" summer-BBQ at Mar a Lago.... "with an extra helping of that delicious chocolate cake PLLL...EASE!"

Too late to play kissy ass now, ya limey fuck.

We know the UK are backstabbing cunts.

And yes, there’s a method to his madness alright and you and that biddy May are on the business end of it.

you'll get yours

Anyone notice (top photo) how Orange Clown always does that dumb 'Mafia Goombah' hand-shake "pull"? Must be something he picked-up from someone in "The Sons Of Sicily" Society when he was hanging-out in Queens way back.

Anyone did that to me would've been on the receiving-end of the 'Mother Of All Head-Butts'.
