County court judgment against Boris Johnson, record shows

A county court judgment has been registered against Boris Johnson's name for an unpaid debt of 535.

The court order, which names Mr Johnson, of 10 Downing Street, was made on 26 October, according to a database of judgments.

The creditor and nature of the debt, which was first reported by Private Eye magazine, is not yet known.

According to Private Eye, "the record shows the debt still 'unsatisfied' more than six months on".

It can be a bummer for a subsequent tenant's credit rating if a previous occupant had a CCJ against them ...

1. Private Eye also points out that the 535 no doubt includes legal costs.

At least two things follow from that:

1. Johnson let a debt of in the region of 200-250 ride past repeated demands, final demands etc. to the point where it ended up in a County Court Judgement that, for any mere mortal, would mean future credit would be difficult to gain, and as you point out, could have ill effects for any future tenants of No. 10.

2. His creditor was so pissed off that it pursued a debt of 200-250 in the County Court against the country's prime minister.

I was threatened with bailiffs at my door during the Poll Tax debacle, largely because of an administrative error I was given absolutely no opportunity to challenge in court. As has been pointed out elsewhere, a sliver of Johnson's living room wallpaper would more than cover the amount owed. If he's lucky, the bailiffs'll strip it from behind the designer sofa.
