Boris Johnson won't say who really paid for his free holiday to a private Caribbean island․ #BusinessInsider

Boris Johnson is under pressure to reveal who paid for his New Year trip to the Caribbean after the businessman who the prime minister said funded the holiday denied ever doing so.The prime minister declared in his register of interests that his trip with his partner Carrie Symonds to a villa on the private island of Mustique was paid for by David Ross, who founded Carphone Warehouse.Ross was previously forced to resign as Johnson's adviser when he was mayor of London, due to a loans scandal.The prime minister's register of interests suggests that the accommodation came to £15,000 and was a "benefit in kind" from businessman Ross, who is also a donor to Johnson's Conservative party.
