Boris Johnson calls an independent inquiry into accusations of bullying by his Home Secretary Priti Patel (the Home Secretary is the minister responsible for Law and Order)

The inquiry finds that Ms Patel's behaviour towards her staff "can be described as bullying" and that she has "broken the ministerial code".

Boris Johnson responds by saying "No she has not. The matter is closed"

Anyway, as expected, the Inquiry has resulted in a resignation. Yes, Sir Alex Allen, who led the inquiry, has gone!

Is Priti a Johnson supporter?

Is Johnson suspected of pressuring Allen? Or did he resign out of frustration - like we've had over here in some occasions.

As I understand it, ALL ministers in Boris Johnson's Government are there because they have pledged support to Brexit.

The story is just breaking but at this moment it appears that Mr Allen was not pressured into resigning. I would assume, as you suggest/ask, more simple frustration - a sense of the sheer pointlessness of his position.

Our ministers are all useless. If each one gets sacked or forcefully retired so to speak we won't have a Government. I hear so many idiots preaching policy reforms all the time but I don't see any of those big mouths wanting to enter parliament and make a difference. That's why this country is in a mess.

And where does authority become bullying and who sets this line that people cross. It seems to me that all of the woke brigade cause these issues which have a knock on effect of no one wanting positions where they can be accused and sacked just to show correctness and diversity.

Life is just so boring now with so many minority groups who want to scream inequality instead of just enjoying life!

I would say some are competent enough.

Wrong. They would be replaced by others. "The t*** is dead, long live the t***."

I certainly hear plenty of idiots. Nevertheless, many people seek election as independents. Reading their blurbs I often think they would genuinely make a difference. Alas, an independent has virtually no chance of election.

Very simplistic.

A Ministerial Code has existed in our constitution since WW2. Independent Inquiries can be called to investigate if any line has been crossed. Of course, as we have found, the PM can call an Inquiry and reject its findings. He can sit on it for 7 months, finally publish it in Anti-Bully Week, and absolve the one declared a bully by the very Inquiry he called himself.

I really don't see how you can actually blame those who highlight the various problems.

I do not find life boring. If "minority groups" make life boring for you I suggest you recognise that YOU are one.

I'm in the minority all right - I'm perfectly normal!
