Sir Ed used a piece in the Independent to condemning the horror tragedy of last week’s gunning down of a passenger plane by Iran. The downed flight killed 176 people after it was fired down, crashing in Tehran. In his piece, Sir Ed claimed Mr Johnson needed to stand up to US President Donald Trump after the attacks.
However, people on Twitter were quick to criticise the interim Lib Dem leader for his party’s role in Mr Johnson’s rise to Government.
On the social media platform, Sir Ed initially wrote: “We all know there’s an elephant in the room when it comes to Boris Johnson’s foreign policy: a Republican elephant.

One wrote: “There will be an elephant in the room when Ed Davey gives his first full speech.”
Another said: “Lol you guys are in Dreamland you can’t do anything!”
And a third added: “Delusions of competency.
