Johnson registers financial interests late for 10th time – Trickett responds

Jon Trickett MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Cabinet Office, responding to the news that Boris Johnson has registered his financial interests late for the tenth time, said:

“Boris Johnson’s façade of buffoonery will not hide the fact that he has broken the rules for failing to declare his financial interests. Worryingly this is becoming a pattern of behaviour: it is the tenth time he has registered his financial interests late.

“Mr Johnson has to realise that these rules are in place to strengthen democracy and ensure the interests of MPs are transparent. He cannot simply run roughshod over them.

“The report notes his lack of leadership in following the rules, which does not bode well should he have ambitions to topple Theresa May.”
