'Appointing Dominic Raab as Deputy PM was a nasty mistake by Rishi Sunak'

Tick-tock, tick-tock... it is only a matter of time before the Dominic Raab bullying row explodes for Rishi Sunak.

Mounting allegations against a Conservative with an unenviable reputation once again shine the spotlight on a fatally weak Prime Minister with lethally bad judgement.

Appointing Raab as Deputy PM and Justice Secretary was another nasty mistake by Sunak, who within 100 days has lost Cabinet Minister Gavin Williamson over bullying allegations and the Tory Party chairman, Nadhim Zahawi, over that £5million tax scandal.

Sleaze is destroying this Tory Prime Minister just as it did John Major before the Conservatives last lost power in 1997, and Sunak is the author of his own downfall.

Inheriting scandals from Boris Johnson, Sunak would have drawn a line in the sand if he was strong, but he is weak, agreeing dodgy deals and gifting Cabinet seats to tainted people such as Raab.

The longer Raab clings on, the more we see the Tories are unfit to govern in our interest.

Learn a lesson

Teachers deserve better and the first of seven potential strikes in England and Wales tomorrow reflect a growing anger among those educating our children.

Anger, yes, that once again they are expected to swallow another savage cut in living standards. Yet anger too that as a profession those teachers are under-appreciated.

No school will be affected by more than four of the seven lost days during the protests.

But those politicians, whether Tory or other, who expect teaching on the cheap are to blame for provoking these walkouts.

Sorry state

The national body for chief constables has taken 34 years to apologise for police failings at Hillsborough.

When the families had to fight so long for justice, the successors of those who vilified them must realise why they show no gratitude for delayed admissions of terrible truths.
