The National:

FOOTAGE has emerged of the Deputy Prime Minister staring into the soul of the leader of the opposition.

The clip, captioned "Raging", was shared on social media from the coverage of Volodymyr Zelenskyy's address to MPs and peers at Westminster. 

Online comments compared Dominic Raab to looking like fictional serial killer Hannibal Lecter as he stared at the Labour leader with wide eyes and licking his lips.


Others suggested he had just binged sour sweets or he was jealous that his best friend, the Prime Minister, was talking to Starmer.

The unsettling clip definitely doesn't help ease the pressure piling on Raab, who is also the Justice Secretary, surrounding a series of complaints of bullying and abusive behaviour said to involve dozens of civil servants who worked with him.

Calls came this week for Raab to be suspended while he is investigated over the claims - however Sunak has commented he will take "swift action" once the investigation has concluded.
