‘Very disappointing’ that aide bet on July election date

  • 24 days ago
Rishi Sunak said it was “very disappointing” that one of his closest parliamentary aides had placed a bet on the date of the General Election just days before the prime minister called it. Craig Williams, who served as Mr Sunak’s parliamentary private secretary and is the Conservative candidate for Montgomeryshire and Glyndwr, has apologised but refused to say whether he placed the bet on the basis of insider information.
