Charity Donations: The Shocking Financial Declarations of UK Politicians

Cash and controversy

The article covers the recent declarations of financial interests made by some UK politicians. This includes payments for TV appearances and donations to charity, as well as hospitality for sporting events.

Matt Hancock's TV Appearance

Former health secretary Matt Hancock received £10,000 for a two-hour interview on Good Morning Britain, according to the latest register of members’ financial interests. He declared that he did not primarily appear on I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! for the money, but to show who he is. Hancock donated £10,000 of his £320,000 fee to charity. He faced criticism from constituents and Conservative colleagues for his appearance on the show, and ultimately lost the Tory whip.

Jacob Rees-Mogg's TV Programme

Conservative former cabinet minister Jacob Rees-Mogg received £32,083.34 from GB News for presenting a television programme. He declared that he worked 40 hours including preparation.

Sir Keir Starmer's Hospitality

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer declared that he received hospitality worth £700 from Mulalley Co Limited for attending Arsenal's 2-2 draw at West Ham.


The register of members' financial interests provides transparency on politicians' financial affairs. However, some declarations can be controversial and attract criticism from the public and their colleagues.
