This is the breaker and Boris clearly hasn't thought this through.
Sir Philip has resigned from his job because of her, and is taking her to an industrial tribunal.
Senior civil servants and diplomats of this type usually continue to keep the code and keep quiet despite everything that ever happens to them.
He has now come out and said that what she told the Independent adviser is untrue.

The PM's independent adviser has investigated the allegations made against her and found them to be true.
He has written a report about his allegations, the contents of which are now public knowledge.

Sir Phil and his legal advisers will have the right to access to that report as part of his case.
Sir Phil does not appear to be the sort of man who is going to do a deal just so the government doesn't have to appear at an industrial tribunal, especially as he has had to give up his job because of her, and has now accused her of lying.

This little issue is not over yet for sure.
Hopefully principles are upheld and there isn't an out of court settlement. Let's wash some government smalls in public.

Nothing worse than bullying and harassment in the workplace, if true, her feet shouldn’t touch the ground.
Exactly. Those defending her saying she's just trying to get stuff done by been forthright etc are full of ****.
Screaming and shouting gets you absolutely nowhere, it actually makes those working under you resent you and work suffers as a result.

100%. People become afraid to be honest with you or raise issues that you need to know because they're scared of how you'll react. You lose experienced and capable people. Only an idiot would treat their staff like that.

I appreciate that this lot have zero empathy for anyone, but it's actually in their own interests to treat people they rely on to get stuff done with respect. Trouble is they all seem to have such little emotional intelligence none of them realise it.
 
Not excusing her in anyway but bullying is often the coping mechanism of someone who lacks the intelligence to carry out a role to which they have been wildly over-promoted. The smirking arrogance she displays is the cherry on top.

The wider issue is that by filling his cabinet with one issue zealots without any discernable talent or intelligence; Johnson has created a powder keg to which covid is the match.

Yep.
I work in a high stress environment that sometimes involves a lot of raised voices and forthrightness. The difference between my work and Patel's environment is our place is full of respect, the head chef only gives out a bollocking when you've messed up, it's took on the chin and work continues. My bosses don't believe in the 'big I am', it's a team effort.

Lovely woman. To quote an unnamed Conservative colleague: “She ideologically doesn’t like foreigners and giving money to the poor.”

Her dad gets on a boat and comes over here as an immigrant, knocks her out (well, her mother did), and now she's got a UK passport and made a few bob wants the doors blocked from anybody else coming over in case they steal her job

Nothing but another embarrasing tory idiot

The idea that any Tory is actually anti-immigration is absolutely laughable as the statistics clearly show over the last decade.

I had to reread that comment twice.

You haven't got that good a memory then. https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...ervatives-targeted-facebook-ads-a9630796.html
Nor you if you're ignoring the record numbers of people they've 'welcomed' to settle here in their ten years so far.

An anti-immigrant Tory is another complete myth to be filed alongside that which claims they're trusted with the economy. Amazing the numbskulls that are duped by the ***** that comes out of their mouths.

You are right they always pledge to do anti immigration stuff but never meet their targets

I think you've hit the nail on the head here
