New claim that Dominic Raab is ‘100% a bully’ as inquiry fails to report back

Dominic Raab: I don’t know… does he look to you like the kind of man who could be a bully?

Another civil servant has said Dominic Raab is – not just a bully, but “100 per cent a bully” as an independent inquiry faces condemnation for failing to report back.

This is just an update for us all to enjoy as the screw turns a little tighter on a Deputy Prime Minister who might not have a job for much longer.


Dominic Raab is “100% a bully”, and also took no steps to intervene in bullying by others, a former Foreign Office official has said in the latest accusations against the justice secretary and former foreign secretary.

The claims, reported by ITV News, came as Rishi Sunak declined to say why an independent inquiry into Raab’s behaviour had not yet reported back after more than four months, or if he would sack Raab if it uncovered misconduct.

The justice secretary, who vehemently denies that he has bullied or intimidated staff, oversaw a toxic atmosphere when in charge of the Foreign Office, the anonymous ex-staffer said, with his office viewed as “a hardship post”.

The official said that in deciding whether or not they believed Raab was a bully, he had looked up the dictionary definition. “I read it as someone that uses their influence to intimidate other people,” he said. “And if that is the definition then he was 100% a bully.”

Officials were “terrified to have interactions with him but also to interact with his office”, he said, adding that he had also witnessed Raab do “absolutely nothing” when a colleague was being bullied by someone else.

“He didn’t step in,” the official said. “One of the most powerful men in the country was condoning it and saying that kind of behaviour was acceptable.”

The joy of this is that, no matter what this “independent” (is it?) inquiry says, interviewers will be able to torture Raab for the rest of his career or life with the fact that the people who worked for him thought he was a really nasty piece of… work.

The sooner the end-of-career retrospectives start coming out, the better.
