May’s spell? Boris Johnson trapped in car as he meets Merkel in Berlin (VIDEO)
German Chancellor Angela Merkel looked on from the red carpet as a member of security attempted to wrench the car door open, eventually succeeding after several tries. All the while, Johnson sat inside as a perhaps fitting metaphor of the years of difficulties in the Britain-EU relationship.
Johnson is among the world leaders visiting Berlin for the Libya peace talks.
Not so long ago, his predecessor Theresa May suffered similar trouble when meeting with Merkel in the German capital. The then-prime minister was in Berlin for Brexit talks when she became trapped in her vehicle.
