Switching sides

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in a news conference with US Secretary of State John Kerry, during which the British hacks discovered the limitations of their formerly chummy relationship with Boris; at one point there was a reference to the sweltering heat in the room which Boris took up --

And as for the heat of the day, it is very, very great, but we have some beautiful surplus German water cannon, so – (Laughter.) 
SECRETARY KERRY: Is there something in store for me I’m not aware of? (Laughter.) 
 FOREIGN SECRETARY JOHNSON: It’s what I feel like at the moment, actually.
