I must take issue with Patrick Cockburn’s analogy comparing Boris Johnson to Inspector Clouseau.

Although it is several years since I last had the pleasure of watching the Pink Panther films, my recollection is that, despite his bumbling incompetence, Clouseau’s cases always, surprisingly, arrived at a satisfactory conclusion.
