We live in interesting times both politically and diplomatically, and Boris Johnson is doing nothing to stop that.
The Foreign Secretary wrote a 4,000 word column in The Telegraph last Friday, outlining his vision of Brexit Britain.
The column was widely perceived as a leadership bid, albeit a fumbled one - not least because the head of the UK statistics Authority wrote to him publicly to disseminate some of the points he'd shared in his column.
Johnson, who holds one of the great offices of state, wrote:
Once we have settled our accounts, we will take back control of roughly £350 million per week.
It would be a fine thing, as many of us have pointed out, if a lot of that money went on the NHS.
