The Tories are 26 points behind Labor in another blow to Rishi Sunak’s leadership.

The Conservative Party’s prospects do not appear to have improved despite the Prime Minister’s Brexit trade deal.

Mr Sunak unveiled the “new Windsor framework” in a press conference with EU chief Ursula von der Leyen at the end of February, three years after the original Brexit deal.

He acknowledged that the UK and EU “had our differences” but declared “the start of a new chapter in our relationship”.

New findings from research by Redfield & Wilton Strategies and Ipsos revealed that the public appears to have little confidence in the new trade deal.

The research group found that the Conservative Party was 27 points behind before the announcement

They have only regained one point since then.

Mr Sunak’s personal approval ratings are at minus nine, but that’s an eight-point improvement from the previous level, reports MailOnline.

Another piece of good news for Conservatives is that the government’s capability rating has crept up.

However, an Ipsos poll shows that 70% of adults do not believe government policies will improve the state of public services in the long term, while only 23% believe it will.

It comes amid polls that support for the Conservative Party has plummeted since Boris Johnson’s Partygate scandal.

The Tories are struggling to recover amid rising energy bills and the cost of living crisis.

Meanwhile, Sir Keir Starmer has been forced to defend his decision to appoint Sue Gray – the former senior official behind the Partygate report – to work for him as chief of staff.

The Labor leader said he had “absolutely no contact” with Ms Gray before she covered lockdown busting parties at Party No 10 in May last year.

“I’ve been looking for a chief of staff for a while but Sue will sort this out but it’s not at all unreasonable,” he told LBC.

Cabinet minister Jeremy Quin told MPs it was “unprecedented” for a senior official to resign for an opposition post. He warned that Rishi Sunak could block the appointment if Ms Gray broke the rules by failing to warn the Acoba Anti-Corruption Committee of her plans.
