Security correspondent Cordon Careers also pointed out that Putin has recently unveiled his new ‘invincible weapon’, a giant nuclear-powered fan located in Siberia and pointing straight at London.
“If he lets one off behind that after a bowl of his grandmother’s goulash, the whiff could reach Boris Johnson’s nasal receptors in a matter of hours,” he warned.
