Major warns against `colossally stupid' triggering of Article 16
British prime minister Boris Johnson has been warned by Sir John Major that suspending parts of Northern Ireland's Brexit deal would be dangerous and "colossally stupid".

Former prime minister Sir John said the move would damage relations with the European Union and the United States and could further destabilise Northern Ireland.

Seems almost as if Major is trying to goad Johnson into triggering A.16. After all Major is a hate figure for Brexiteers.

Also, since when does "colossally stupid" stop a politician from doing something?
