Report author instantly resigns
An official inquiry into allegations against Priti Patel has found she “shouted and swore” at staff as they had alleged and which she had repeatedly denied.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, the sole arbiter of the ministerial rules, today gave her his support during ‘Anti-Bullying Week’ even though the inquiry found guilty.
The civil servant who spent months producing the report resigned instantly.
Boris was never expected to demand the home secretary’s resignation despite her behaviour, her repeated denials and her appalling record of abusive past behaviour which bordered on treason with her previous unauthorised foreign policy negotiations with the Israeli government.
Sources familiar with the inquiry said it had found evidence that civil servants were treated poorly by Patel, as well as compelling evidence of bullying.
Numerous Tory MPs have since Tweeted their disbelief in the findings and support for her, arguing that she had always been nice to them!
Pressure on the prime minister to sack Patel is growing as a result of claims of bullying and harassment from civil servants in three separate government departments.
After months of delay No10 only today published a summary of the report. It has refused to release the full report and Labour has accused Johnson of attempting a cover-up.
Labour leader Keir Starmer has demanded the full report be published and Johnson and Patel should face questions in the House of Commons.
