Boris Johnson’s new lawyers may cost the public more than £1 million. Why pay them?

Last Updated: May 28, 2023By Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Money, money, money: why doesn’t Boris Johnson spend some of his own, instead of ours, for a change?

Boris Johnson has sacked the legal team selected for him by the government, after its members provided information to the Cabinet Office that led to a new criminal investigation

And now…

Taxpayers are set to be billed more than a million pounds for Boris Johnson ’s new lawyers, after he sacked the government-provided legal team defending him at the Covid-19 inquiry.

In fact, taxpayers aren’t paying for it – other than indirectly. It’s public money, and if the government wants us to pay it, it will need to tax the money back from us. That hasn’t happened yet.

That being said: I don’t see any reason for the public to continue paying for lawyers that public servants didn’t appoint.

I mean,

It doesn’t seem right, does it?

If he wants to hire his own lawyers, he should damn well pay them himself.

    No cuts in legal aid in this particular case.

    If the ordinary person on the street earns more than £11,000.00 a year then they are denied legal aid, this is so wrong it’s unbelievable. One rule for them and anything that prevents fairness for the rest of us. The whole political system needs a re-work, it’s geared to feed the coffers of those in charge at great cost to the tax payer. We all pay taxes regardless of whether we work or not.

    Always has been and will be a “Freeloader” , the less spoken about him the better as like his friend Trump, he thrives on all publicity as he believes it keeps him relevant.
