Are we still bothering to count the number of investigations?

Boris Johnson facing probe over funding of 2019 holiday

Boris Johnson is being investigated by the MPs' standards watchdog over the funding of a Caribbean holiday in 2019.

Commons standards commissioner Kathryn Stone has confirmed she is looking into whether the prime minister correctly declared how the trip was paid for.

Mr Johnson has previously declared he received accommodation worth £15,000, covered by Carphone Warehouse co-founder David Ross.

Downing Street said the prime minister had acted correctly and transparently.

But Labour said there were "questions" over Mr Ross's "generosity".

The commissioner normally investigates whether MPs have failed to declare a financial interest, not declared it correctly, or declared it late.

Mr Ross initially said he had not paid "any monies" for the trip Mr Johnson took with his partner Carrie Symonds to the private island of Mustique - part of St Vincent and the Grenadines - between Boxing Day 2019 and 5 January 2020.

He later clarified that he had "facilitated" accommodation for the prime minister.

Mr Ross added that Mr Johnson's declaration of a "benefit in kind" in the February 2020 MPs' register of MPs' interests had been "correct".

But Labour asked for the standards commissioner to investigate, saying Mr Johnson's entry appeared "to be incorrect".

Mr Ross, who also "owns" an academy chain
Any way it will just be a cut and paste from Wallpapergate

PM: I’ll stop brain drain to the cities

That’s not a bad thing and won’t do Labour’s demographics any harm. I’d guess the number of people in Hartlepool who switched to the Tories over concerns about software engineers moving to Manchester and London is about zero.
It would help Labour's demographics. Doubt it's very easy to do though. Everybody else has wanted to do that.
