Angela Rayner responds to reports a county court judgement was issued against Boris Johnson for unpaid debt

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader, responding to reports that a county court judgement for unpaid debt was issued in October 2020 against Boris Johnson, said:

“Another day, another report of deeply concerning irregularities about the renovation of Boris Johnson’s flat.

“This is not about Boris Johnson’s personal finances, the record speaks for itself that he has already broken the rules on declaring his financial interests, and he is already under investigation regarding potentially illegal wrongdoing.

“The issue of debt when it comes to the Prime Minister is whatever debt of gratitude Boris Johnson owes to the Tory donor who paid to renovate his flat, and what this donor or donors were promised or expected in return for their generosity.”
