Sir Keir Starmer, the Labour leader, and Chancellor Rishi Sunak clashed in a heated exchange at Prime Minister's Questions.
Sir Keir accused the Tories of an "addiction to sleaze and scandal", raising questions on the handling of Dominic Raab's bullying allegations and Nadhim Zahawi's tax affairs.
He also questioned why taxpayers should foot a potential £222k bill for Boris Johnson's legal fees for defending himself from an inquiry into possible misleading of Parliament over partygate.
Rishi Sunak responded by accusing Sir Keir of lacking support for the women in his party and of siding with "extremist protesters and union bosses" in reference to Labour's opposition to controversial strike and protest legislation.
The Prime Minister's Questions saw a heated exchange between Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and Chancellor Rishi Sunak.
Sir Keir criticised the Tories' "addiction to sleaze and scandal", raising concerns over their handling of several allegations, including bullying claims against Dominic Raab and Nadhim Zahawi's tax affairs.
Meanwhile, Rishi Sunak hit back at Sir Keir accusing him of lacking support for women in the Labour Party while also mentioning the opposition of Labour to controversial strike and protest legislation.
Additionally, Rishi Sunak suggested that taxpayers should not have to cover the £222,000 costs of Boris Johnson's legal fees for defending against an inquiry into potential misleading of Parliament over partygate, a matter to which Sir Keir had also objected.
The salient point here is the clear difference in characterisation between the two papers.
The Independent had a rather neutral tone throughout with quotes attributed to the two sides, while The Mirror's account was more critical of the Prime Minister's handling of complaints regarding Dominic Raab and Nadhim Zahawi's alleged misconducts, which they characterized as weak.
