Britain is not a corrupt country.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said on Wednesday that Britain is not a corrupt country. He had been back in Glasgow to talk about progress at the climate summit, but also had to answer questions about a scandal that broke out at the party, according to the BBC.

“I really think Britain is not a totally corrupt country and I don’t think our institutions are corrupt,” Johnson told reporters.

It’s all about investigating Attorney General Jeffrey Cox for his side duties as a tax haven counsel. According to media reports, he withdrew more than one million pounds, equivalent to 11 million crowns, in addition to his position as a member of Parliament for the Conservative Party.

We have a very strict regime of parliamentary democracy and scrutiny, not least of the media, and I think Johnson defended himself.

The comments come even after several MPs were screened for their side duties.
