Priti Patel bullying inquiry report leak.. wonder if it's Cummings

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-55007122
Johnson has decided not to sack her, even after she has been shown to have bullied junior employees, one to the point of attempting suicide and has now twice breached the ministerial code. In response, Sir Alex Allen, Johnson's own Independent Adviser on Ministerial Standards, resigns. Not much point having Code of Ministerial Standards or an Adviser on them when there clearly are no standards and no accountability.

Have you got a link to this, not doubting you but it needs saying on another forum I frequent.

If any of us had behaved this way in.our jobs, we would be dismissed.  No question.  Politics is such a grubby game.  Johnson has clearly decided he can't afford personally to lose Cummings & Patel in the same week.

You are so right on the employment dimension.

We like confidence in management but Patel's confidence is that of the out of control, spoilt child.

We regrettably know that her strident views on migration and asylum seekers command strong support in significant parts of the electorate.  Many like displays of strength including being forthright and even backing this up with occasional shouting and swearing.

Like it or not that weighs with her value to the CP.

But those kinds of "displays of strength" evidence a lack of control and focus and are 100% unacceptable in today's workplace.  If persistent, then dismissal will indeed follow.  She is a Public Servant, a Manager and an Employee.

This all ignores her truly bizarre "holiday" to secretly meet Israeli ministers whilst Home Secretary - the obverse of Cummings' strictly eyesight testing trip to Barnard Castle.

Any Government, regardless of Party, becomes sickeningly corrupt during a third term.  IMO.

Johnson: 'Form a square around the Prittster'

A small part of me died when I read this.  These people actually govern.  FFS.

I know somebody who works with Patel, and from what I've gathered she's got incredibly poor social skills. Naturally no empathy or ability to read people. It would be easy to point out that that is an accusation that could be levelled against many in government, but she, from what I have heard, has a particular problem with social interactions.

How fucking tone deaf can you be.  Parents dealing with the hard work of the kids at school during a pandemic.  Its Anti Bullying week.

Let's legitimise bullying.

Seriously I despair that people who consider themselves moral look at the cronyism,  the bullying, the lying, the bribery, Etc etc etc and think oh well, these are the people who should be running the country.

Basically my Wife's family.  Upstanding members of the community running over 60's clubs and helping in the community.  How do they overlook it.

It will always be the same.  It'll always be 'But someone' as they struggle to justify voting for likes of Johnson, Patel, Hancock... So they try to say the others are somehow worse.

It was interesting that part of her "defence" was that she didn't know she was bullying people. Leaving aside the fact it's complete bullshit, that would almost be worse anyway. It would mean that she so lacked any capability to judge the affect of her behaviour on others that she was incapable of understanding when she was bullying someone. That she is a literal psychopath, in fact.
