Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg brexit cartoon. The Foreign Secretary, in the famous cinematic Brando gangter pose, holding Tory backbencher and leading brexiter Jacob Rees-Mogg as the sinister cat. Boris Johnson earlier in the week called Theresa May's idea of a Custom's Partnership as crazy. In normal times thi would have been enough to see the Foreign Secretary lose his job. But we are not in normal times - we are living in brexit times when normal rules don't apply and government ministers are not held accountable by either MSM nor their own party. Having lost pro-EU Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, Theresa May is now so weakened she cannot in effect sack Boris Johsnon and he is free to act and speak as he chooses and clearly intends to do so.
