The best Twitter reactions to Boris Johnson becoming Foreign Secretary

Well, we had a good run avoiding World War Three while it lasted.

In one of her first official acts as new Prime Minister yesterday, Theresa May decided to appoint Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary. Britain's diplomat to the world. A position of utmost importance in maintaining peace in the western world and beyond.

As though he were some Churchillian clone forged in a laboratory with union jack bunting for brains, straw for hair, you almost have to commend this cartoonish figure for rising from his expensive private education to become Mayor of London and now foreign secretary.
