The thing with sir Starmer is he's always criticising the failures and policies of The Tories. But, he'll not tell us (former Labour voters) what he'll do and his own policies. And, when he did he put the Party before humanity and UK Plc eg Gazans and Islamists and extremists in his Party.

And, to cap it he even announces no Rwanda flights if Labour wins, and probably an amnesty to all those in the UK illegally including the newly arrived/ing boat people. This is preposterous with little regard for the British people, its economy, infrastructure and harmony of UK Plc.

Tactical voting, may I hasten to advise.

The BBC can reveal that the Conservative Party’s Director of Campaigning Tony Lee is also being looked into by the Gambling Commission over an alleged bet relating to the timing of the general election.

The BBC reported earlier this morning that Lee – who, we understand, took a leave of absence from his job yesterday afternoon – is married to the Conservative candidate who is also being looked into by the betting industry regulator.

Laura Saunders, the party’s candidate in Bristol North West has worked for the Tories since 2015.

She is married to Lee. It is not known when the bet she placed was made or for how much money. Nor is it known when Lee placed a bet and for how much money.

Laura Saunders and Tony Lee have been approached for comment by the BBC and have not replied.

A Conservative Party spokesman told the BBC: “We have been contacted by the Gambling Commission about a small number of individuals. As the Gambling Commission is an independent body, it wouldn’t be proper to comment further, until any process is concluded.”

A Conservative candidate alleged to have bet on the timing of the general election has confirmed she is cooperating with the Gambling Commission.

Laura Saunders, the party’s candidate in Bristol North West, says she is also considering legal action against the BBC, which first revealed the betting regulator was looking into her.

The BBC said in a statement that it was confident in its journalism.

It is not known when the bet was placed or for how much money.

Ms Saunders' husband, the Conservative Party’s director of campaigning Tony Lee is also being looked into by the betting watchdog over an alleged bet relating to the timing of the 4 July election.

A statement released via solicitors said: "Ms Saunders will be co-operating with the Gambling Commission and has nothing further to add.

"It is inappropriate to conduct any investigation of this kind via the media, and doing so risks jeopardising the work of the Gambling Commission and the integrity of its investigation.

"The publication of the BBC's story is premature and is a clear infringement of Ms Saunders' privacy rights.

"She is considering legal action against the BBC and any other publishers who infringe her privacy rights."
