Rishi Sunak Slams Keir Starmer for Invoicing Islamist Group Instead of Banning Them


Rishi Sunak accuses Keir Starmer of representing Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir as a lawyer

Rishi Sunak, the Prime Minister, launched a scathing attack on Keir Starmer, accusing the Labour leader of invoicing extremists instead of banning them. During a tense session of Prime Minister's Questions, Starmer sought to criticize the PM over his Rwanda deportation plan. Sunak responded by showing a document on European Human Rights law authored by Starmer, highlighting his previous connections to Hizb ut-Tahrir, a group the UK plans to ban as a terror organization.

Rift within Conservative Party as MPs rebel against Rwanda migrant plan

The PM faced a challenge to his premiership as 60 Tory MPs, including Boris Johnson, rebelled against his Rwanda migrant plan. Senior Tories Lee Anderson and Brendan Clarke-Smith resigned or were sacked for supporting changes proposed by Sir Bill Cash and former immigration minister Robert Jenrick. The rebels were ultimately defeated as Labour and other opposition parties supported the PM. However, the bill is still undergoing debates and could be defeated if around 30 Tory MPs join opposition parties in voting against it.
