    Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London and current Foreign Secretary called Sadiq Khan a ‘puffed up pompous poppinjay’ in response to his remarks about Donald Trump.

    Boris Johnson has waded into the row over Donald Trump’s cancelled visit to London as he launched a scathing attack on his successor as Mayor Sadiq Khan.

    The Foreign Secretary plunged the government’s response to the President’s cancellation into chaos as he accused Labour’s top brass of jeopardising the special relationship.

    His comments came as Downing Street insisted the “strong and deep” partnership between the UK and US will continue.

    Mr Trump said he had decided to abandon the proposed visit because of his disgust at the deal for America’s £750 million new embassy in Nine Elms, south London.

    He tweeted: “Reason I canceled [sic] my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for ‘peanuts,’ only embassy in London for ‘peanuts,’ only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars. Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO
    His claims were proved to be wrong, as documents showed the decision to sell the previous embassy in Grosvenor Square, central London, was announced by Barack Obama’s predecessor George W Bush.

    Mr Khan, who has clashed with the President in the past, said Mr Trump had “got the message” of Londoners.

    But the Mayor’s intervention triggered a rebuke from his predecessor in City Hall, Boris Johnson, who accused Mr Khan of being a "puffed up pompous popinjay".

    “The US is the biggest single investor in the UK - yet Khan & Corbyn seem determined to put this crucial relationship at risk,” tweeted the Foreign Secretary. “We will not allow US-UK relations to be endangered by some puffed up pompous popinjay in City Hall."

    The Foreign Secretary's post came in the middle of a regular Westminster briefing by a Number 10 spokesman.

    Despite being read the tweet, the spokesman was unable to say whether Mr Johnson spoke for the Government, but promised to "look into it".

    Asked if Mr Johnson was speaking for the Government, the spokesman replied: "I'm not aware of the circumstances of the tweet, we will come back."

    Before Mr Johnson tweeted, the spokesman was asked if Mr Khan had damaged the so-called "special relationship", replying: "No, the US and the UK are natural resilient strong partners and allies and we do more together than any two countries in the world."

    But he said Mrs May would tell Mr Trump he is welcome in London.

    Asked about the PM's views on south London after the president described the embassy's new site as an "off location", the spokesman said: "I think Vauxhall is a vibrant and important part of London and home to many businesses, obviously Apple are moving there headquarters there."

    The spokesman added: "A state visit (invitation) has been extended and accepted and we will confirm the details in due course.

    "No date was confirmed for any visit, the one you are referring to now.

    "The opening of the US embassy is a matter for the US."

    The Grosvenor Square embassy, topped by a gilded bald eagle with a wingspan of more than 11 metres, opened in 1960 to a design by Eero Saarinen.

    The square has been home to the US since 1938. It was acquired by Qatar for a hotel but the sale, signed off by the Obama administration, raised less than the £500 million first estimated after it was made a Grade II listed building, reducing development potential.

    This is a tempest in a teapot. UK is going to need for the U.S. to have their back after Brexit happens...tradewise if nothing else. I guess we have to consider that the Brits and PM May have their share of embarrassing, cross-grained, flap-jawed politicians to apologize for too.

    "London Mayor Sadiq Khan celebrated the news that President Trump would not be visiting the city, saying Trump had "got the message" from Londoners who "have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here.""

    The Labour Party is the enemy of the British people not Trump.

    Ask the Romans ...
    Yep - recall the Roman emperor, Hadrian (117 to 138 AD), who is famous for building Hadrian's Wall (started 122 AD); still partially intact, today.

    Since when did the Mayor of London hold authority to meddle in UK ‘s diplomatic relations with other nations?
    Apparently since they surrendered to the moslems.

    Overall, crime in London has risen by 5.6 per cent - or an extra 42,775 more offences - in the 12 months to the end of September, figures show today.

    There were worrying 30 per cent increases in the categories of robbery, theft and knife crime as well as a 16 per cent rise in the number of rapes

    London is the acid capital of the world and has areas where drivers won’t work because there are so many attacks
    Why should he worry about violence? Muzzies embrace violence with gusto.
