Labour leader Kier Starmer has commented on the continuing controversy over Angela Rayner’s tax affairs

Yesterday saw further revelations in the Mail on Sunday over whether she paid the right amount of tax on the 2015 sale of her council house

Starmer said in an interview that he did did not need to see the legal advice given to his deputy because his team had, and argued “nobody is interested” in Rayner’s tax affairs adding that the Tories should be focussing on bringing down A&E waiting times instead of how much time Angela Rayner “spent with her husband 10 years ago”

Earlier though Work and Pensions Secretary Mel Stride said

“What does surprise and slightly confuse me is the fact that Keir Starmer, as a former director of public prosecutions … has not seen fit to ask her to show him [her legal] advice so he can come to his own conclusion on it,”
