A shadow minister has dismissed allegations about Angela Rayner’s previous living arrangements as a “storm in a teacup” and rejected suggestions of “double standards” over her tax affairs amid a police investigation. Jim McMahon bolstered Labour’s defence of the deputy leader on Saturday after Conservative Party deputy chairman James Daly suggested she may have given false information about her main residence. He said it was unfair to compare Ms Rayner’s situation to the pandemic-era scandal involving former prime minister Boris Johnson, whom she called on to resign while Scotland Yard probed claims of Covid rule-breaking in Downing Street.
