Starmer's Sue Gray appointment a 'major mistake', says Tory MP

Conservative MP Simon Clarke has said the appointment of Sue Gray as Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer's chief of staff is a "major mistake", alleging that it calls into question the former civil servant's impartiality during her 'partygate' investigation. The former cabinet minister said: "Many people will think that this is a serious question mark over that investigation and it is unhelpful for it to become known that the person in charge of it obviously held very strongly partisan political views.".
