Opinion – BBC News – Iran nuclear deal: Boris visits US for talks

This is important news from the BBC but we need to peel the onion to speculate on the truth. Both France’s & Germany’s leaders, Macron and Merkel, visited the US to try to persuade Trump. Meanwhile, the UK’s PM is fighting for her future on Brexit. The BBC reports:

Mr Johnson will meet US Vice-President Mike Pence, National Security Adviser John Bolton and foreign policy leaders in Congress.

In horse-racing jargon, Johnson’s trip is ‘an also ran’ – it’s the story of a loser. As a result of the Brexit referendum, the UK geopolitical leverage is seriously diminished. May has sent to Johnson as a last-minute face-saving excercise.

Thoughts?
