Sunday Papers - Rishi Sunak warned over Nadhim Zahawi
A variety of stories lead Sunday’s papers. The papers were sent to print before the announcement that Nadhim Zahawi has been sacked by the prime minister following his tax scandal.
The Observer reports the PM was warned of a reputational risk to the government when he appointed Nadhim Zahawi as Conservative Party Chairman last October. According to The Sunday Telegraph, support for Mr Zahawi among senior Tories is “rapidly draining away”. One unnamed cabinet colleague is calling for him to resign, telling the paper “I think he’s got to go”.
The Sunday Times leads on an interview with Michael Gove, who tells them that government guidance on building materials was partly to blame for the Grenfell Tower disaster.
The Independent leads with its own analysis of official figures, saying on average, a person is killed every three days by an offender out of prison on probation in England and Wales. Over the six years to 2020, the paper says there were more than 600 reviews of alleged murders by re-offenders.
The Observer reports the claims of a whistleblower who worked at an asylum hotel run by the Home Office. The source reports that unaccompanied children at the hotel were regularly threatened with violence and subjected to racist abuse by staff.
