Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
To which Johnson allegedly said "I know these people. They're my friends. But actions have consequences."

Words cannot encompass the Everest-dwarfing scale of Johnson's political idiocy. Not only has he destroyed any possibility of operating with a workable minority, but when the GE happens he will be risking losses in 20-odd seats where the former incumbents can split the vote ( at best) and be reelected in opposition to him (at worst).

And even if they were his friends once, they certainly won't be now.

These aren't the finely calibrated actions of an adult. They're petulant toy-throwing by a political toddler.
