Former Chancellor Nadhim Zahawi is still resisting calls to quit as chair of the Conservative party amid over his unpaid taxes, ast he PM Rishi Sunak was accused of looking weak as he still hasn’t sacked him.
With this in mind comedian Rosie Holt has put together another amazing parody video, more of that later.
Labour’s Angela Rayner wrote: “Nadhim Zahawi’s position is untenable and Rishi Sunak’s deafening silence is unsustainable. What did the PM know and when?
“Why were HMRC warnings ignored?
“When will he act to decontaminate his Cabinet and ensure his Ministers’ tax affairs are in order?”
Some Tories have also piled on the pressure on the PM. Peter Aldous said: “Really you shouldn’t have a situation where the chancellor, his private advisers, have or are negotiating a settlement with HMRC; that’s not acceptable.”
James O’Brien also said his piece writing: “One major legacy of Boris Johnson’s premiership is that ‘styling out’ a scandal, no matter how egregious, in the hope that it will go away is now the default position for Tory government. The fact that Zahawi threatened to sue people for correct reporting should be career-ending.”
So into this mess steps in Rosie Holt and her amazing comedy skills.
