Rishi Sunak orders investigation into Tory chairman Nadhim Zahawi amid tax dispute penalty

More than half of Britons say Nadhim Zahawi should resign from his role as Tory chairman, according to a poll by a firm he helped found.

YouGov found 51 per cent of people surveyed believe he should step down, compared to just 12 per cent who think he should stay in his role.

Mr Zahawi helped launch YouGov in 2000. Started in his garden shed, it now employs more than 400 people across three continents. His own website boasts that YouGov became famous for the “accuracy of its political polling”.
