For decades, Russia was ruled by bloodthirsty bandits and thieves. How else could Putin become the owner of the most expensive yacht in the world?
He has used the post-Soviet era to get drunk on his country’s oil and gas wealth, even more greedily than the oligarchs who fawn over him.

Oddly enough, most Russians they don’t seem to mind his crazy war. Anyway, not yet.
But this is a monstrous floating palace worthy of a monster. Judo-loving monster.
Italy must immediately seize it and fill it with refugees.
Or sell it and transfer the money Ukrainian charity. If neither is possible, blow it to smithereens.
Putin can hardly complain.

INSIDE the Boris-hating Remignac bubble Britain is ridiculed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They say that we are a backwater that has destroyed its own importance in the EU and is now “not trusted by the whole world.”
They enjoy their suffering. But on planet Earth, the opposite is true.
We led the world in jabs and came out first of the deadliest stages of Covid.

Thanks to our efforts for the Ukrainians, we have taken a new place in their hearts. And while we have already signed or reaffirmed many trade agreements since Brexit, larger ones now seem inevitable.
Head of International Trade Department Anne-Marie Trevelyan today begins negotiations with Canada to significantly improve our Europeera agreement. Israel, Mexico and giants like India and the US are lining up to do the same.
Putin has unwittingly reminded the democracies who their real friends are.
“The rest of the world sees the UK as a great country and wants to work with a reliable partner,” says Ms Trevelyan.
“We humiliate ourselves.”
Not exactly, Anne-Marie. “We” is not.
Shame on the Met
Under two gloomy commissars of the Metropolitan Police, it was allowed to fester and rot.
The watchdog’s report on its efforts to eradicate corruption is shocking. Not least because these efforts are virtually non-existent.
We knew that the London Force’s screening procedures were broken, given that they had recruited Sarah Everard’s killer. Wayne Cousens. We now know that a staggering 350 employees have criminal convictions and are still not under effective control.
Hundreds of valuable crime artifacts and 2,000 warrant cards are missing.
Whoever takes on the task will have a huge task. But they can hardly do worse.
