Meanwhile costs for getting rid of the No 10 “John Lewis” look seem to be growing

According to the Daily Mail:

Boris Johnson fears the final bill for Carrie Symonds‘s lavish makeover of their Downing Street flat could be as high as £200,000.

He told aides of his worries in crisis meetings on how to pay for his fiancee’s refurbishment. 

A source said the Cabinet Office had asked Conservative chiefs if party HQ has paid for some of the work – but failed to get an answer.

The Prime Minister faced further trouble last night over claims that Whitehall ethics chiefs have refused to approve his secret bid to help raise funds for the makeover by setting up a ‘Downing Street charity’.

According to Tatler, the main living area of the flat has been painted deep green and is often lit by candles.

  1. Dear Boris

    The answer to this dilemma is simple – just say “no” to Carrie and suggest that you get yourself accommodation elsewhere (at your own cost) – or get her to pay for the redecoration herself.

    Oh, sorry – how stupid of me. You and Carrie would never pay for anything yourself however much it is for your personal benefit, when the taxpayer can pay for it instead. Doh!!
