Boris Johnson has earned 315,000 euros for a 30-minute speech in the USA

Former British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was paid around 315,000 euros for the speech he gave last October at a conference of insurance companies in the United States of America.

According to the House of Commons register in which MPs report their income, Johnson received £276,130 (€314,830) for a 30-minute speech and participation in a 45-minute discussion in front of insurance agents and consultants in Colorado Springs.

Boris Johnson’s trip to the United States came about a month after he resigned as the country’s Prime Minister, and just days before he attempted a spectacular comeback to succeed Liz Truss, who also resigned on October 20.

Eventually Boris Johnson withdrew and Rishi Sunak took over as Conservative leader and Prime Minister of Britain.
