'Sleaze, sleaze, sleaze’: Starmer clashes with Johnson over texts to James Dyson

Guardian, 21 Apr 2021
Keir Starmer and Boris Johnson clashed during prime minister's questions over Johnson's texts to James Dyson. It has been reported that Johnson personally assured Dyson that his employees would not have to pay extra tax if they came to the UK to make ventilators during the pandemic. Starmer asked: 'What is the right thing to do if the PM receives a text message from a billionaire supporter asking him to fix tax rules?' In response, Johnson said he made no apology for 'shifting heaven and earth' to secure ventilators and save lives.
