Labour’s ‘Beergate’ scandal deepens amid claims Angela Rayner is being ‘thrown to the wolves’

Labour’s Beergate row deepened final evening amid claims that Angela Rayner was dealing with a bid to ‘throw her to the wolves’ over the lockdown drink and curry in Durham.

A celebration insider instructed The Mail on Sunday that an audit of emails, WhatsApp chats and video edits had thus far offered no proof that the celebration’s deputy chief had returned to work after the occasion.

It comes simply days after each politicians promised to resign if police fined them over the controversial gathering on April 30 final 12 months when indoor socialising was unlawful.

And celebration insiders stated it will be ironic if Ms Rayner was the one to lose her job over Beergate as till a couple of weeks in the past, Labour had denied she had even been current on the occasion which befell within the run-up to the Hartlepool by-election.

However final evening, one senior Labour MP raised suspicions that somebody was ‘making an attempt to dump’ on Ms Rayner.

He stated: ‘This feels very very similar to somebody is getting ready to throw the deputy chief to the wolves over this.

‘If there’s an issue with this occasion in Durham, it may’t be proper to focus the blame on Angela Rayner – Sir Keir was there too.’

Starmer loyalists harassed that regardless of the ‘fraught’ relationship between the celebration and his deputy, Sir Keir’s workplace was not making an attempt to shift any blame on to Ms Rayner.

The defence that Sir Keir and the Labour group carried on working after the curry at Durham Miners Corridor has develop into key to Labour’s declare that no guidelines had been damaged .

Final evening, a Labour spokesperson stated: ‘Angela has made no secret of the truth that she was there with Keir for marketing campaign occasions, and no guidelines had been damaged.’
