The Foreign Secretary has once again drawn criticism after he claimed the Republic of Ireland was a storytelling device and not a country.

In a candid interview on Sky News, Boris Johnson explained that Ireland was a literary invention similar to Narnia or Middle Earth, used by Victorians writers as a warning about Imperial overreach.

“I bet you they’ll want to know what our trade agreement with Lilliput will be next. Utter balderdash! Black beer, horses in tower blocks, a ginger in every home. It’s an obvious parody of what Britain would be if it were Catholic.

“Brexit couldn’t be simpler. Put up a hard border on a bridge in the middle of the Channel and just ignore rumours of cities across the sea the West.”

I’ve got a double first from Cambridge, a PhD from SOAS and I speak seven languages fluently. I lived with Yakut horsemen for over a year and brokered ceasefires between Colombian paramilitaries. And now my job is to explain whatever that Dickens Cosplayer farts out.

“Ireland is a myth? It’s no crazier than Bojo being our nation’s top diplomat. Fuck him, fuck Brexit and fuck you. I’m going back to the steppe!”
