...for the UK, that is. They probably thought Theresa May would be a safe pair of hands, but then she goes and makes Boris Johnson foreign secretary.
The UK's European neighbours are not best pleased at this news. Tory sympathisers here might find it amusing and be inspired to hilarious Dad's Army gags like "They don't like it up 'em Cap'n Mainwaring!", but for the British it's actually anything but funny.
The last week or so, European leaders have been taking a more conciliatory approach, saying they don't want a bitter divorce. Whew - sigh of relief, right? I mean, when it comes to negotiating the terms of their exit, the Brits have a total of 0 leverage. They're really going to need some feelings of goodwill across the table.
So it's all looking like the damage of Brexit might be minimised, then Theresa May decides the best response to the conciliatory messages from Europe will be to give them a big loud "Fuck you." Good luck with those negotiations, Tories - I'd be feeling schadenfreude about what's going to happen to you at the negotiations now, if it weren't for the fact you'll be taking the UK along with you.
