Boris Johnson is Boris Johnson

Tory backbenchers are calling for Boris' resignation after his cruel and crass comments over the war-torn Libyan city of Sirte who, in order to become a world-class tourist and business destination. first had to “clear the dead bodies away”.

Embarrassed laughter filled the hall when the Foreign Secretary said: “There’s a group of UK business people, wonderful guys who want to invest in Sirte, on the coast, near where Gaddafi was actually captured and executed as some of you may have seen.

“And they literally have a brilliant vision to turn Sirte, with the help of the municipality of Sirte, to turn it into the next Dubai. The only thing they’ve got to do is clear the dead bodies away and then they’ll be there.”

Oh dear.
