Special adviser to Liz Truss suspended in ethics investigation over ‘sh*t’ comment

Liz Truss: Jason Stein worked for her during her campaign to become leader of the Conservative Party.

A top aide of Liz Truss has been suspended with an investigation to follow.

Jason Stein, a supporter of new Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, is being investigated by the Cabinet Office’s propriety and ethics unit over briefings from Downing Street sources over the weekend.

It was alleged that these briefings led reporters to believe Ms Truss was of the view that the former Chancellor and Health Secretary Sajid Javid, who had been thought to be in line to replace Kwasi Kwarteng as Chancellor, was “shit”.

Mr Stein worked for Truss during her Tory leadership campaign.
