Senior government ministers will lose their passports following admissions of cocaine use.
In this week’s shoot yourself in the foot announcement, Boris Johnson is proposing a series of measures designed to inflict lifestyle punishments for lifestyle crimes.

This is a brilliant initiative. If we take Boris’s passport away, it can only be good for the country. It will stop him from embarrassing the nation on the world stage and save the Foreign Office a fortune in clean up fees.
