Sir Keir Starmer red-faced AGAIN after Commons opens sleaze probe into his earnings

SIR Keir Starmer has been left red-faced AGAIN after Commons chiefs opened a sleaze probe into his earnings.

Pious Sir Keir – who claims to be “Mr Rules” – now faces months of investigation for two separate possible breaches.

After months of attacking the PM over rule-breaking, he is now under investigation by cops AND the Commons – just like BoJo was.

The top lawyer is being probed for not properly registering his interests – including his earnings, gifts, benefits and hospitality.

It is believed to refer to late declarations of football tickets and book earnings.

Standards Commissioner Kathryn Stone will look into the matter.

It comes on top of the police investigation he is under – with Durham Police probing if he broke lockdown rules with his beer and curry gathering during lockdown.

Today he came out fighting, insisting: “there’s no problem here”.

During a visit to Wakefield, the Labour leader told broadcasters: “My office is dealing with it and will be replying in due course.”

Asked if he was sure he had done nothing wrong, he said: “Absolutely confident, there’s no problem here.”

Labour sources said the investigation was about two declarations which had been made a few days late.

A spokeswoman added: “Keir Starmer takes his declaration responsibilities very seriously and has already apologised for the fact that administrative errors in his office have led to a small number of late declarations.

“The Standards Commissioner has asked for more information which we are happy to provide.”

The PM got a fine for attending a lockdown gathering after cops investigated a string of alleged parties.

But he now faces another Commons probe from the privileges committee over whether he lied to MPs about what he knew.

He’s survived a vote of confidence from his own backbenchers – and they can’t try and oust him again for at least a year.
