Cost of living crisis: gov not helping – Rayner 

Rayner talks about the fuel crisis saying the govt is not helping with the cost of living. Rayner mentions the gov has neglected the security of the British people and mentioned the No 10 lockdown parties. 

Raab describes the sanctions imposed on Russia and accuses Rayner of just being in a “social media echo chamber.” 

……………………………………………

Rayner says Gov had 12 years to sort of the UK’s dependence on foreign oil and the PM is going cap in hand to a dictatorship. 

Raab snaps back that whilst Rayner was trying to make Corbyn PM, Boris Johnson was coordinating an international response to the Russian attack in Salisbury, UK.

Rayner asks if the PM asked security services to revise their assessment of Evgeny Lebedev. 

Raab hits back saying Rayner is talking nonsense and she wanted Corbyn to be PM – he favoured pulling out of Nato and abandoning the nuclear deterrent.
