WATCHING TV program Yes, the Minister in the 1980s allowed viewers to enjoy a satirical noise in the work of government departments, where the civil service constantly manipulated ministers to pursue their action plans, regardless of government policy.
The reality of working with the current team of UK Government ministers, and in particular the Secretary of the Interior, should look a little worse, stressful and no less intimidating after the conclusion of the independent report on the alleged harassment of Priti Patel staff.

The investigation was prompted mainly by the resignation of Sir Philip Rutnam, the chief civil servant of the Home Office, who claimed that he had been the victim of a vicious campaign orchestrated against him by the Secretary of the Interior and that, contrary to Ms’s claims Patel, she had really been warned about her behavior before. It seems inconceivable that Rutnam was not invited to contribute evidence to the report as he was a witness and victim of the alleged Secretary of State harassment behavior.
However, the squabbles that Priti Patel has downplayed and harassed senior civil servants will not come as a shock to anyone who has pursued her career. Ms. Patel is a ruthless and unscrupulous politician who will not tolerate any opposition to her Thatcherite philosophy or to the application of her right-wing views. Its long-standing, noisy and aggressive support for the tobacco lobby as well as its support for dismantling the current welfare state are well known.

When she was appointed Secretary of International Development in 2016 by then-Prime Minister Theresa May, Ms. Patel used a punitive approach to international aid that led to a major feud between her and her team of civil servants. Her abrupt individual meetings with the Israeli Government in 2017 ended with her resignation, but showed that she was willing to ignore all advice from her advisers and act outside the conventional government protocol to try and achieve her goals. morally controversial in foreign relations.
The civil service is now dealing with a significant group of government ministers who, like Ms. Patel, will not play by conventional rules or uphold truly accepted democratic principles. Under a Prime Minister who seems to relinquish any moral responsibility or ethical leadership, senior ministers like the Secretary of the Interior seem to have blanche cards to move their immoral agenda forward without restraint.
Boris Johnson, ironically during England’s anti-harassment week, has unreservedly supported his minister despite the report concluding that she had broken the ministerial code for her conduct towards civil servants. The Prime Minister’s Adviser on the Ministerial Code, Sir Alex Allen, has made his position clear by submitting his resignation, another transparent sign that the heart of this Westminster government is unprincipled and utterly dishonest.
Maybe the Home Secretary put Mr. Johnson on his back and threatened to take his lunch money if he dared to fire him. Nothing would surprise me with this unfortunate Conservative administration.
The head of the harassment investigation leaves after the prime minister says he did not think Ms. Patel was a harasser, despite the investigation finding otherwise. Boris Johnston notes that Ms. Patel has made a “complete and sincere apology.” One wonders what this complete and sincere forgiveness is for then.
I remember the quote “in matters of style blow with the wind, in matters of principle to be strong as a rock”. Maybe you need to have some principles in order for this to apply to you. It seems that the Prime Minister does not have any, or that the principle for him is to protect the cruel behavior of a colleague no matter what.

So the head of the investigation leaves, the bully is protected and smirks the way the bullies do when they leave the violation of ministerial codes (not to mention the dignified standards of basic humanity). Many people have high-pressure jobs. Bullying can never be justified, as I have heard many conservative MPs try to do. The impact on those who are bullied is well documented.
For all that Boris Johnson’s decision is terrible, no one will be surprised by this abolition of his duty and responsibility. Yet again bullies win. The UK Government proudly declares that it will not tolerate harassment and harassment. His actions speak otherwise, so yet another instance of a rule for men and another for the Tories. Maybe the time has come to make harassment and harassment in the workplace a criminal offense like other forms of abuse, and let the police and prosecution service decide if action should be taken.
Professor Alan Boyter
IF you have committed some kind of transgression there are two basic types of forgiveness:
1. You apologize for your actions and for the injury and offense that your actions have caused.
2. You express “your deepest regret” (or any other bunch of sincere words!) That others may have been offended by your words. Never your goal of course!
In the first example you take the blame for your actions, but in the second you apologize for any violation that has been taken as a result of your actions while not apologizing for your actual actions.
This second example, which is in fact no apology at all, is from the Priti Patel rules book. Does she think we are brave?
It should come as no surprise to anyone when Boris Johnson rushes to defend Priti Patel. Come on the morning of January 1st, her less than delicate skills as Secretary of the Interior can become essential to maintaining law and order in the UK.
WHAT credibility does Johnson have now? A case of “I do not see ships”? Move, nothing to see here. And if Ms. Patel was unaware of the effect of her actions, should she really hold such a post? Any posts? She has no consciousness. Red card for both!
