This Dutch cartoonist has given Johnson an epitaph that would be funny if it was not so true.

It seems to me that, when the history of Britain’s decline by economic and political suicide is written, presumably in another language, and Eton is identified as the cultural Petri-dish in which we grew a generation of vane, facile, self-deceiving men who destroyed the Union, isolated us from our neighbours and left us on our knees, begging bowl in hand, to the Americans, this cartoon should be included as Johnson’s epitaph.
