Boris Johnson has made £1,000,000 from FOUR speeches since quitting as PM
The former PM was on a rate of about £30,000 an hour
Boris Johnson has reportedly made more than £1 million since quitting as prime minister in September.
The Conservative MP has spoken at four different events since stepping down, earning a reported £1,030,780.
Johnson stood down as prime minister in early September after he lost the support of ministers and lawmakers following months of scandals, including parties at the heart of government when the rest of Britain was under a strict lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 58-year-old was paid £1,030,780 pounds for four speaking engagements in October and November, a rate of about £30,000 an hour, according to the latest register of financial interests of members of parliament.

As a member of parliament, Johnson is required to declare external earnings, as well as the number of hours involved.
Mr Johnson's best paid work was a speech in New York to the U.S. finance firm Centerview Partners worth £277,700 pounds. The firm also provided transport and accommodation for Johnson and two members of his staff, and the registered time commitment was nine hours.
Mr Johnson had been paid more than £750,000 for three speeches in November.
The former PM also spoke to the Hindustan Times and the CNN Global Summit Lisbon in the same month.
In October, he was paid £276,000 to make a speech to the Council of Insurance Agents and Brokers, taking his total earnings to more than £1,000,000 since he left Number 10.
It is expected Mr Johnson will make even more over the coming months and years, as he follows in the footsteps of Tony Blair and David Cameron to appear and speak at events, and could even publish a memoir of his time in Downing Street.
In 2007, Mr Blair published his book, ‘A Journey’, detailing his political life, which made him a reported £5 million. He also earns an estimated £300,000 to speak at events.
His successor, Mr Cameron, is thought to have made £1.5 million from ‘For The Record’, and earns a smaller £120,000 for speeches.
