THE world watching the war raging over Downing Street’s decor must think Britain has gone mad.
Boris Johnson brought about the most seismic political revolution in half a century by sheer force of personality and willpower, in defiance of a Remainer-dominated parliament.

He made a promise to 17.4million Brexit voters and kept it.
He won an 80-seat majority and ended the terrifying menace of an anti-Semitic Marxist Labour Party taking power.
He was slow off the mark when it fell to him to lead us through our gravest crisis since World War Two — but then instigated a Covid vaccine programme which has saved countless lives and is the envy of the world.
Our economy, kept alive through successive shutdowns by an unprecedented rescue package he and his Chancellor put in place, is forecast to bounce back faster than any other nation’s in the G7.
Large parts of Britain are set to benefit hugely from the levelling-up agenda which, after Covid, is his central aim.
Why do we list all this? Because perspective has been lost. Because Labour and their media allies believe Boris should be sacked and punished over wallpaper and curtains — at a Downing Street flat he doesn’t even own.
We agree his answers on how he eventually paid for them have looked shifty. He should have come clean far earlier.
But we cannot stomach the confected hysteria of Keir Starmer and his MPs.
It is hard to watch those who spent three years shamefully plotting to overthrow the biggest democratic mandate in our history trying to claim the moral high ground over a bloke who may or may not have bent a rule to foot a decorating bill.
Nor can we forget the partisan role of the Remainer-heavy Electoral Commission, now probing Boris’s bills, in fruitlessly hounding Leave campaigners.

France has stuck by a president who openly fuelled anti-vax lunacy, Germany with a leader who responded to the heartbreaking catastrophe in India by moaning about EU vaccine supply.
Canada re-elected a PM who repeatedly went out in racist “blackface”.
We will truly have lost our minds if our Prime Minister’s enemies, knowing they cannot beat him at the ballot box, contrive to topple him over some curtains.
THERE was a twist yesterday on the final page of the long Brexit story:
As MEPs voted to approve the EU-UK trade agreement, Michel Barnier proved more thoughtful than any of them.
Brussels’ ex-chief negotiator said the EU failed by not listening to us[/caption]
A few banged on about Brexit being a “historic mistake” for Britain, as though our enhanced trade deals and superior jabs rollout had never happened.
But Brussels’ ex-chief negotiator said the EU failed by not listening to us.

The danger now, he added, was in ignoring Euroscepticism elsewhere.
Funny, that . . . The Sun said exactly the same five years ago.
