Rishi Sunak’s weasel words can’t hide the lie: Tories WERE called out on crumbling schools, long ago

Crash: this is what happens when RAAC concrete in a school roof fails.

Rishi Sunak has been caught lying in Prime Minister’s Questions again.

He said Opposition leader Keir Starmer had never raised the issue of crumbling schools with him before PMQs on Wednesday (September 6) – but this is not true.

Here’s what Sunak said:

With hindsight, the Tories have rushed to claim that Sunak meant Starmer had never mentioned RAAC concrete in schools before Wednesday – you can see it in Greg Hands’s ‘X’ post above, and in Michele Donelan’s response to Kate Garraway, below:

But these are weasel words. You can hear Sunak’s words for yourself, so you know he didn’t mention RAAC concrete. If he didn’t, then it is misleading of these other Tories to do so afterwards.

It seems that, when Sunak was bandying the words “Captain Hindsight” around, he was pointing in the wrong direction.
