Today at PMQs Labour leader Keir Starmer, told the Prime Minister his failure to sack Mr Zahawi shows “how hopelessly weak he is” and accused the PM of overseeing chaos and being “overwhelmed at every turn”.
From inside his own party David Gauke, the former Justice Secretary, became the latest senior Conservative figure to call for Mr Zahawi to resign.
He told BBC Radio 4’s Today Programme that if he was the Prime Minister he would be “very tempted” to make Zahawi leave his post.
Also on Tuesday night, the former Attorney general Dominic Grieve said: “If I were Prime Minister I would call Nadhim Zahawi in and I would say to him please explain exactly what’s happened. Because it doesn’t need an investigation. You’ve got to tell me what it is.
“And unless Nadhim Zahawi can make out the case that in this matter there’s been some unfortunate mistake which leaves him entirely blameless, it seems to me that following proper practice he ought to be resigning.”
However, Sunak doesn’t see it that way.
He told the House: ““I’m proud of the record of this Government.”
However, filmmaker Peter Stefanovic isn’t taking the PMs claims lying down, and created another viral video, calling out Sunak and it’s brutal for our most recent leader of the Conservative party.
