Starmer says 'sleaze at heart of government'

Sir Keir Starmer said the David Cameron lobbying scandal is just “the tip of the iceberg” and there was “sleaze” at the heart of government, as Boris Johnson rejected the Labour leader’s call for a parliamentary inquiry.

Sir Keir insisted an “overhaul of the whole broken system” was needed during a fiery PMQs encounter. Mr Johnson claimed “we’re having a proper independent review” – and said he “cannot remember” when he last spoke to Mr Cameron.

MPs are today set to vote on whether to establish a wide-ranging parliamentary inquiry into Mr Cameron’s dealings with Greensill, giving a new select committee the power to summon witnesses.
