Double standards? Conservatives target Starmer over ‘beergate’

News Correspondent

The Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab has accused Sir Keir Starmer of “rank double standards” after a leaked memo raised more questions about his beer and takeaway with colleagues, when covid restrictions were in place.

The document claims the dinner was pre-planned – the Labour leader has always maintained he was working.

Durham Police announced earlier this week it is investigating the event, which occurred in April last year.
