May quips Johnson into line

PRIME Minister Theresa May has used the British Conservative Party conference to put Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson in his place. In a keynote address, Ms May joked about his tendency to create headlines. "Can Boris Johnson stay on message for a full four days? Just about,” she quipped to laughter and applause. Earlier this week, Mr Johnson was criticised for referring to Africa, the world's second-largest continent, as "that country”, and his suggestion of greater migration between Australia and the UK was dismissed by Home Secretary Amber Rudd.
