Labour leader Keir Starmer breached MPs’ code of conduct eight times

Keir Starmer: yet another own goal.

If you’re thinking Jeremy Corbyn would never have done this, you’re probably right:

Sir Keir Starmer has been found to have breached the MPs’ code of conduct eight times.

An inquiry into the Labour leader was opened in June by the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner Kathryn Stone, relating to claims about late declaration of earnings and gifts, benefits or hospitality from UK sources.

These included a directors’ box for two people at Crystal Palace worth £720, four tickets for Watford vs Arsenal and tickets for his staff for the British Kebab awards.

Speaking at the time, Sir Keir said he was “absolutely confident” he had not broken the MPs’ code of conduct.

But the commissioner has now found the leader of the Opposition failed to register eight interests – five more than the ones alleged in the original complaint.

There’s no need to get carried away with this – the breaches are all minor and/or inadvertent, there was no deliberate intent to mislead, and they could all be corrected using the rectification procedure, by which MPs publish the details of the breaches and an apology on the House of Commons website.

But one has to wonder, if Starmer can’t even do his own housekeeping properly, how he expects to run an entire nation, if he is elected to government.
