Tory MPs and the Daily Mail have expressed anger that Partygate investigator Sue Gray has been offered a job as Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer’s chief of staff.
Gray produced a highly critical report into lockdown parties under Boris Johnson that contributed to his downfall as PM.
Labour has insisted it did not approach her until after it was published.
The Daily Mail is FURIOUS as you can see!
As Dr Mike Galsworthy points out she was once heralded by no other than Michael Gove.
He wrote: “Well I remember Gove effusing that Sue Gray is a person of great integrity – so I presume he’ll now passionately counter the Daily Mail claim that her Partygate investigation was a Marxist plot all along?”
Former minister Jacob Rees-Mogg, a cabinet minister under Mr Johnson, has said Ms Gray’s Partygate conclusions now looked “like a left-wing stitch up”.
James O’Brien was also quick to slam the Dail Mail’s front page and why it has tied the Tories into knots.
LBC shared the video and wrote: “It’s the flimsiest lump of red meat that I think the Daily Mail have ever thrown into the mix.’ @mrjamesob exposes the knots the Tories have tied themselves in over their fury at Sue Gray becoming Keir Starmer’s chief of staff.”
