PMQs: Starmer calls Sunak 'weak' over handling of Raab bullying scandal

Sir Keir Starmer has accused Rishi Sunak of being “too weak” to act over the bullying allegations made against his deputy prime minister Dominic Raab.

The Labour leader also compared the prime minister to Boris Johnson in his efforts to “brush off” Tory sleaze and duck responsibility during a fiesty exchange at PMQs.

Comparing the current PM to his scandal-ridden predecessor, Sir Keir attacked No 10’s handling of Nadhim Zahawi tax scandal, bullying claims against Mr Raab and Mr Johnson’s Partygate inquiry.
