The Prime Minister, Boris Johnson’s county court judgement against him for a debt of £535 was issued over a claim of “defamation” and “committed repeated defamation.”
Downing Street defended Johnson and said the county court judgement was “totally without merit” and an application was lodged to try and strike it out.
A county court issued the judgement against Johnson on 26 October 2020 and the court records show the judgement remains “unsatisfied” which showed his address as “10 Downing Street, London, SW1A 2AA.”
The claimant is named as Yvonne Hobbs against “The Rt Hon Boris Johnson,” with the reasons cited for the claim as “defamation” and “committed repeated defamation.”
A Number 10 spokeswoman said, “An application will be made for an order to set aside the default judgment, to strike out the claim and for a declaration that the claim is totally without merit.”
Laughably the government’s very own website says, “If you get a judgment do not ignore it, you could be taken back to court and forced to pay.”
Adding, “Banks and loan companies use this information to decide whether to give you credit or loans.”
