Boris Johnson's Travel Advice As Foreign Secretary

"Britons in Brussels are advised against all but essential comparisons to Hitler."

With Boris Johnson still settling into his role as the new Foreign Secretary, someone has set up a Twitter account to help him out in providing travel advice to holidaying Brits.

How nice of them.

In BoJo’s usual grandiloquent manner, the tweets provide all sorts of useful tips to UK citizens planning to travel abroad.

Boris Johnson’s appointment as foreign secretary has been met with a torrent of disbelief on Twitter where an avalanche of reasons why Theresa May’s decision “defies logic” have been piling up. 

The main focus of these quips is Boris’ history of offending foreign leaders, the very people he will soon be negotiating with on behalf of the UK.   

Recently Boris won a competition to pen the ‘most offensive’ poem about Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. His £1,000 winning limerick was about Erdoğan having sex with a goat.

He also once referred to US President Barack Obama as a “part-Kenyan President”, and a visit to China during the Olympics in 2008 didn’t go down that well either. 

Boris annoyed the locals who accused him of being “arrogant, rude and disrespectful”, when accepting the Olympic flag.
