Another formal complaint about Dominic Raab is added to official investigation

Dominic Raab: This site once said there was nothing at all behind that vacant smile. Was this inaccurate? Was it hiding a bully?

A third formal complaint about bullying by Dominic Raab has been added to the official investigation, by request of prime minister Rishi Sunak.

It relates to Raab’s behaviour as Brexit secretary in 2018.

Raab denies the allegations and has said he’s looking forward to dealing with the complaints “transparently rather than dealing with anonymous comments in the media”.

But the BBC report of the latest development says the Ministry of Justice, which Raab is now heading, has been “inundated” with complaints of alleged bullying.

These are not being investigated, it seems, because they aren’t “formal” complaints.

Some – like Labour’s Angela Rayner – say restricting the investigation in this way is a “stitch up” that “will fool no one”.

There is an answer to that, which is for everybody who has made informal complaints to formalise them. If they’re worried about further bullying as a result of doing so, perhaps they could group together to form a ‘class action’-style complaint.

Obviously nothing has been proved yet.

But if the allegations are true, then isn’t it in the interests of justice to do everything possible to make sure they are proved?
