Rishi Sunak has defended Priti Patel after the harassing accusations made against her claiming that shouting is necessary sometimes.

The chancellor told the BBC’s Andrew Marr Show that the interior secretary was quite polite despite an investigation revealed that she had broken the ministerial code shouting and cursing staff.

Patel has apologized for her behavior and Prime Minister Boris Johnson has refused to remove her despite pressure from Labor.

“I do not think shouting is an effective way to get the best out of people,” Sunak said Sunday.

“But it is sometimes necessary to be direct in order to bring progress to an organization, especially in stressful circumstances.”

Sunak added: “On a personal level, I worked closely with Priti and realized that she was totally good and very focused and passionate about what she does.”

This comes as shadow business minister Lucy Powell said it is “terrible” that Boris Johnson has decided to support Priti Patel, instead of firing him.

She told Sky News’ Sophy Ridge: “I think her position is completely unstable, absolutely.

It has been found by an independent investigation into the breach of the ministerial code and I think that if it is discovered that you have breached the ministerial code, your position is completely unstable.

“I think it’s horrible that the Prime Minister has decided to support him instead of dismissing him and that is what he should have done.”

Several media outlets reported over the weekend that Johnson tried to soften the independent report.

He found that Patel had not met the standards set under the British Ministerial Code, which says ministers should treat officials with respect.

The report’s author, government ethics adviser Alex Allan, resigned Friday after its publication after the prime minister backed Patel.

A government statement said Johnson judged the code had not been violated, however, saying concerns had not been raised at the time and that Patel was unaware of the impact of her actions.

“The prime minister has full confidence in the interior secretary and considers this issue now closed,” the statement said.

On Saturday, the Times and the BBC reported that Johnson had tried and failed to persuade Allan to soften his findings, particularly the claim that Patel’s behavior amounted to harassment.

A spokeswoman for Johnson’s office said the report reflected Allan’s opinion. “As you would expect, the Prime Minister spoke with Sir Alex Allan to find out more about the issues. Sir Alex’s conclusions are entirely his own.”
