Boris Johnson remains in Foreign Office House despite resignation

Boris Johnson is still living in the taxpayer-funded Foreign Office house over 12 days after his resignation, according to reports.

The former foreign secretary is still living in residence funded by taxpayers, despite profiting from renting out his own home less than 4 miles away.

MP Stephen Doughty told reporters “It is ­extraordinary that Boris is still living it up in a grace-and-favour residence while ­profiting from renting out his own property. “It’s high time the Government take back control of this property from this failed former Foreign Secretary. If Prime Ministers can move out of Number 10 within a day, surely he can. If not maybe we need to order a big red bus to evict him.”

It is thought new foreign secretary Jeremy Hunt has come to an agreement with Mr Johnson, who is expected to stay in the residence until the end of the month.
