The surprising reason Boris Johnson may be “the sole politician in Europe qualified to deal with Erdogan”

Rebel Staff
 

Boris Johnson was London’s mayor until a few weeks ago; plus an MP; plus helped campaign for the Leave side of Brexit campaign, and I was sort of hoping that he’d run for the leadership of the Tory Party there after David Cameron stepped down.

But instead, he was just appointed to be their foreign minister. Which I think is perfect.

The UK's Spectator magazine had a poetry contest recently about the Turkish president, Erdogan.

Remember, Erdogan has persuaded the German government to prosecute a German comedian for reading a dirty poem about Erdogan on the German version of Saturday Night Live.

So the Spectator had a contest for rude poems about Erdogan. And Johnson entered. And obviously he won, with this limerick:

There was a young fellow from Ankara
Who was a terrific wankerer
Till he sowed his wild oats
With the help of a goat
But he didn’t even stop to thankera.

I am deadly serious when I say he may be the sole politician in Europe qualified to deal with Erdogan, especially as he conducts his Stalinst purges of Turkey’s government, judiciary, media and military.

“Goat Bandit”… I’m not as clever as Boris Johnson but I have set myself a challenge to write a ditty set to the tune of “Gold Finger” with obvious changes… Will keep you all posted…

Boris Johnson is going to surprise a lot of establishment politicians in Europe and elsewhere, and at their peril… As evidenced by his Erdogan limerick, he has a very quick mind from his years as a journalist, is fearless, and is going to take great delight in skewering the buffoons in Brussels… Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande among them… And of course “goat bandits” everywhere…

Erdogan shouldn’t be in the EU for obvious reasons , but as the UK is leaving why give a sxxt?

I think he will be straight talking like our former Foreign Minister John Baird. Then there can be no misinterpretation.

Don’t really know much about him, seems a bit eccentric…NOT that there is anything wrong with that but gives the impression he can handle himself…and the people who will try to bring Britain down. I like Theresa May and hope that Boris will be a valuable addition to her government. Britain will be just fine, I am confident of that. Am very disappointed in my country Scotland for their ‘remain’ attitude….what the hell has Europe ever done for them????

In the UK all the Left Wing Politicians consider Boris Johnson a joke, as do a lot of Conservatives. I think they are all in for a surprise, Boris is nobody’s fool, though he loves to act like one. Never underestimate Boris, he has all kinds of Degrees from Oxford University.

I think he is the perfect man for the job he has been assigned and will out smart a lot of people, just because they think he is a Clown.

It was him that stated that the Markets would fluctuate for only a short time, and he was right.

The UK just sold an Electronics Company to Japan for 24 Billion and the Japanese are keeping the Company in the UK and expanding it, so more jobs will be created.

Boris was right.

There once was a channel called CBC
Who never told what we should hear or should see
So they showed what they wanted
And told what they thought
Till conservatives sold them for you and for me.

Hmm… good point Boris Johnson… I guess there’s no equivalent to the HRC under Sharia law that would force Muslims to thank the goat they just BLEEPED?…

Ezra, you make me laugh. glad you posted that limerick. I guess we should thank our lucky stars communism hasn’t taken over here and people have some freedom of speech left.

I wonder if the CBC or the other MSM in their pocket will publish that limerick? After all, they are high brow intellectuals and a well written limerick is very intellectual. Johnson’s was extremely well written, following all the conventions.

Oh…wait…combining intellectual with CBC and MSM is oxymoronic.
