‘I’ve always said no rules were broken’: Keir Starmer after being cleared ...
A time in which Keir Starmer was described as "Mr Rules" has resurfaced, following news he broke MP's code of conduct eight times.
An inquiry into the Labour leader found he failed to register eight separate interests on time, including gifts from football teams, the sale of a plot of land, and a five-figure book advance.
Starmer has apologised to the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner Kathryn Stone, who led the investigation, for what the party said was an “inadvertent error”. When the investigation opened in June, Starmer had said he was "absolutely confident" no rules were broken.
Stone noted that the “breaches were minor and/or inadvertent and that there was no deliberate attempt to mislead”.
