Letter: Boris is so unsuited for holding public office

Alastair Campbell (TNE #90) reminds us of just how extraordinary it is that someone so clearly unsuited to holding public office as Boris Johnson has managed to gain such a strong foothold in politics.
Gary Neville summed it up for me when, following yet another bit of foot-in-mouth idiocy as the foreign secretary suggested we would boycott FIFA World Cup in Russia later this year, he described Johnson as 'a useless fool'.
Sadly, this useless fool has been given one of the most important diplomatic roles in the UK, and is a constant embarrassment to us on the world stage. God help us.
Sorry Alastair, I know you don't 'do God', but we need divine intervention to spare us from any more of Johnson's dangerous uselessness.
