    Perfect choice of pictures. Well done Mercopress.

    Personally I preferred Boris in his role as presenter of HIGNFY, I don't think he's convincing at all as Foreign Secretary.

    Yeah, why exactly is a 'British government propaganda organ' posting stories that make Britain look bad? That's some poorly planned propaganda right there.
