The insults and hostility directed at Boris Johnson by EU leaders, ministers, officials and media completely justify his appointment as foreign secretary.
We will be well shot of the likes of Jean-Claude Juncker, Donald Tush, Angela Merkel and François Hollande, and dubious eastern European leaders surrounding their countries with barbed wire.
I wish Johnson every success and hope he remains true to himself and is not subsumed by officialdom - I write as a former civil servant.
He must speak fearless and expose that babble of authoritarian self-righteousness for what it is.
All the best, BoJo.
