LABOUR renewed its calls for Boris Johnson to come clean about his dealings with Tory donors today, after Downing Street refused to comment on his childcare costs.
The Prime Minister’s official spokesman said that Mr Johnson had personally covered all the costs of childcare for his one-year-old son Wilfred.
But the spokesman refused to be drawn on whether the Prime Minister had previously approached supporters to pay for a nanny.
The statement comes after a donor said that he resented being asked to “pay to literally wipe the Prime Minister’s baby’s bottom.”
The PM also faces questions over how he paid for the reported £200,000 refurbishment of his Downing Street flat.
Labour deputy leader Angela Rayner called on the government to publish all correspondence relating to his attempts to get Tory donors to fund his lifestyle.
She said: “Boris Johnson forcing his MPs to vote against free school meals and making stealth cuts to schools at the same time as asking Tory donors to pay for his own childcare is yet more evidence that it’s one rule for him and his mates, another for everyone else.”
