Sue Gray, a former senior civil servant who was responsible for investigating the “Partygate” scandal, has found herself in the news once again as a report investigates whether she broke rules when discussing a role with the Labour party. She had been offered the position of Sir Keir Starmer’s Chief of Staff, and it is alleged that she failed to disclose the discussions, potentially breaching the civil service conduct rules. However, Gray has the support of Sir Keir, who accused the government of using the probe to distract from more critical issues. Before her involvement in the Partygate scandal, Gray had built a reputation for being efficiently discreet while serving in various roles in government departments since the late 1970s. She had also overseen inquiries into high-profile cases such as “plebgate” and a pornography scandal involving then Deputy Prime Minister Damian Green.
