The Labour leader, Keir Starmer, piled the pressure on the prime minister, attacking him over his handling of outstanding questions around Nadhim Zahawi’s taxes. Speaking at PMQs, Starmer said Rishi Sunak’s failure to sack Nadhim Zahawi showed “how hopelessly weak he is”. Starmer also took a swipe at the prime minister, implying his reluctance to take action against Zahawi may have something to do with concerns about tax avoidance in his own family.  Sunak told MPs he was committed to due process and an investigation into the matter was underway, accusing the Labour leader of “political opportunism”. He also said the Labour leader lacked “principles”, arguing he resigned when he disagreed with Boris Johnson, whereas Starmer spent years in former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s cabinet.  Starmer says Sunak ‘too weak’ to sack Zahawi amid pressure over Tory chair to quit – UK politics live
