  1. If Ben is running the country and Liz the foreign office, I would see little change in terms of Ukraine policy.
    Liz is tough and she loathes putler.
    As for Pisscough’s statement about his nazi regime not liking Boris, that’s a badge of honour for Boris.
    Who would want to be liked by a bunch of genocidal nazis?

    • He did not forget Ukraine in his resignation speech. Short extract:
      “Of course I am immensely proud of the achievements of this Government from getting Brexit done, to settling our relations with the Continent for over half a century, reclaiming the power for this country to make its own laws in Parliament, getting us all through the pandemic, delivering the fastest vaccine roll-out in Europe, the fastest exit from lockdown and – in the last few months – leading the West in standing up to Putin’s aggression in Ukraine.

      Let me say now to the people of Ukraine that I know we in the UK will continue to back your fight for freedom for as long as it takes.”
