There’ll be a report in a year or two saying he did stuff that he shouldn’t have, but that he broke no rules, and that the rules should maybe be tightened in future.

Any hope that Labour had of making this lobbying thing stick to the Tories is just not going to be allowed to happen, is it?

Tory Equalities Minister

[De Cordova] is clearly determined to create a divisive atmosphere around race in this house, and in this country, and we will not stand for it.
We continue to push for a fairer Britain, for levelling up, they continue to look for division, they continue to stoke culture wars, and then claim that we are the ones fighting them.

Straight out trumpism say that the other side are doing what you’re doing
