The Prime Minister has faced many questions recently over the controversial refurbishment of his Downing Street flat.
Boris’s £200000 refit gets a dig in John Lewis advert . It now appears that John Lewis has poked fun at him in one of their advertisements.
It has been reported that the makeover of the flat was inspired by a need to get rid of the “John Lewis furniture nightmare”. That Mr Johnson inherited from Theresa May.
An investigation has been launched into how the refurbishment was paid for by the Electoral Commission.
John Lewis said in their new ad campaign that their department stores have “something for “almost” everyone”.
The high street store took to Twitter and wrote. “Time for an interiors refresh? We pride our Home Design Service on having something for *almost* everyone.”
The Labour party chipped in with their thoughts too. A spokesman for Sir Keir Starmer said. “unlike the Prime Minister he doesn’t turn his nose up at John Lewis thinking it’s too downmarket” and “wouldn’t spend £840 per roll on wallpaper”.
The Prime Minister receives an annual allowance of £30,000, funded by the taxpayer, for such things as redecoration of the flat.
However the Electoral Committee are investing as they believe this was exceeded and want to find out who funded it.
Reports suggest that it cost upwards of £200,000. Former advisor to the Prime Minister, Dominic Cummings, told how he warned Mr Johnson “his plans to have donors secretly pay for the renovation were unethical, foolish, possibly illegal”.
