Stop The Bets!

The Tory gambling scandal respawned last night.


The Tory gambling scandal respawned last night when it was revealed that a met officer working in Rishi Sunak’s protection team had been arrested over alleged bets, and also being looked into by the Gambling Commission is Laura Saunders – a Conservative candidate who happens to be married to the director of campaigns in CCHQ.

The team also discuss the three polls published last night; while the predictions may differ, all roads lead to disaster for the Conservatives.

Hannah Barnes, associate editor, is joined by Rachel Cunliffe, associate political editor, and Freddie Hayward, political correspondent.
