If these claims are true, one has to wonder how Dominic Raab could ever have thought the denials in his resignation letter would fly.
Raab resigned as UK Justice Secretary and Deputy Prime Minister yesterday (Friday, April 21, 2023) after an inquiry found that he had bullied civil servants on two separate occasions.
In his resignation letter, he denied the findings and complained that the inquiry process was flawed.
Now people are lining up to accuse him – if they haven’t done so already.
Here’s Gina Miller, who took the Tory government to a judicial review on the legality of its Brexit, telling Piers Morgan and other guests on his show that Raab called her a “silly bitch”:
She had already expanded on this in an article for The Independent, in February:
The call came to appear on the BBC’s Today programme. I would be on with a Tory MP, Dominic Raab. I hit Google and found out that he was an arch Brexiteer and a lawyer. I thought we would have a robust but reasonable conversation about the merits of the case. How wrong I was.
We were sitting next to each other in the studio. The presenters introduced the case and turned to Raab, who launched into an abusive attack on me: I was a rich woman going against the will of the people; my challenge was a rather naked attempt to steal the referendum by the back door. My nervousness suddenly disappeared. I turned to him and said: “Mr Raab, have you read my case?”
His face was full of fury. The debate was won.
As we made our way out of the studio, the young runner showed us to the lift and said he would meet us downstairs. As the doors closed, Raab stared at me and said: “I can’t make up my mind if you’re naive, got too much money or just stupid. Just because you have deep pockets and friends in high legal places you think you can just go to court to stop the will of the people.”
I was stunned and stayed quiet.
The doors opened and the young man told me my car was just outside. Raab barked at the young man: “Where’s my car?”
The young man replied that they hadn’t been asked to arrange a car and that maybe Raab’s office had organised one instead. Raab was furious and shouted at the young man: “Go get me a f***ing car.”
The young man was shaking, I was even more shocked. I said “thank you” to the young man and suggested he went back inside and let Raab call his team.
She also discussed the incident (also on the video clip above) in which Raab mistook her brother for Nish Kumar in what she clearly took to be “they all look the same” racist stereotyping:
On 11 January 2018, I was invited to be on the BBC Question Time panel with Raab.
Raab entered with two of his team and made a beeline to my brother – a serious-looking, bespectacled, very short-haired doctor – and said, “I am Dominic Raab, look forward to being on the panel with you tonight” with that grin he does. I looked up from the papers I was reviewing in preparation. My brother was taken aback and said, “do you think I’m Nish Kumar? We’re not all the same, you know?”
Nish Kumar has confirmed the incident:
Some have chosen to question the validity of Ms Miller’s “silly bitch” story, claiming that it is impossible to verify as nobody else was in the lift with her and Raab.
The now-former minister himself has denied it.
But she clearly wasn’t lying about the Nish Kumar blunder.
And that lends validity to her other claim.
Not only that, but This Writer does not think Ms Miller’s are the only claims that will be made about Raab, now he has been found to be a workplace bully.
The information is coming out. Feel free to judge it for yourself.
