Brexit opposer makes claim of abuse and racism against Dominic Raab

Gina Miller: at one point in her fight against Brexit, she was afraid to leave her home because of threats of acid attacks. She alleges that Dominic Raab called her a “silly bitch”.

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.

Matt Hancock is incompetent, utterly corrupt and hypocritical. Judge JOHNSON by what happens to him

Lover boy: what do you think attracted Gina Coladangelo into a social distance-busting affair with Matt Hancock? It’s hard to see the incentive from this image.

This is a test of Boris Johnson’s leadership.

Matt Hancock has appeared to be Teflon-coated ever since he was first appointed as Health Secretary in 2019.

He immediately set about corrupting and discrediting the position (which some might consider a hard job, after his Tory forerunners stank up that office in their own ways). I’ll go into that shortly.

The current allegations are that he corruptly appointed a college friend, Gina Coladangelo, to a non-executive directorship in the Department of Health, where he then had an affair with her – breaking social distancing rules in the process.

So he was abusing his power in order to bypass the selection process to get his choice. Oh, but wait:

A government spokesman said Ms Coladangelo’s appointment had been “made in the usual way” and had “followed correct procedure”.

If “the usual way” is bypassing fairness in order to appoint cronies, we might be more inclined to accept this explanation. Was “correct procedure” the emergency rule that the government used to dodge competitive tendering to give Covid-19 contracts – and huge amounts of public money – to Tory cronies?

He was also abusing his own social distancing rules by having an affair with this woman.

And he was a hypocrite because he had criticised Professor Neil Ferguson for breaking the rules to have an affair, then deliberately did the same thing himself:

Mr Hancock called Prof Ferguson’s actions “extraordinary”, adding that social distancing rules were “there for everyone” and were “deadly serious”.

Let’s add these latest indiscretions to the list already accumulated by Hancock, shall we?

First, perhaps we should discuss the firm run by his in-laws that he got onto the NHS procurement list and that made him a major shareholder right before it received a big NHS Wales contract.

Perhaps he’s counting his lucky stars, today, that it wasn’t a firm run by relatives of his wife?

His policies caused thousands of Covid-19 deaths in care homes.

He claimed nearly £1,000 of public money for software to improve his image on the internet.

He failed to supply personal protective equipment (PPE) to NHS medical staff – and then lied about it. He fed us a lie that there was never a PPE shortage.

He broke the law by keeping details of Covid-19-related contracts with companies run by Tory cronies secret.

He broke his own 10pm pub curfew because he considers himself to be above the rules he imposes on the rest of us.

After promising that care homes would enjoy regular Covid-19 testing, he failed to provide it.

He lied about hitting the 100,000-a-day Covid-19 tests target.

He liedrepeatedly – about causing the deaths of 40,000 care home residents.

He created a “fast-track” system to award Covid-19 contracts to companies run by Tory cronies.

He got his vaccine strategy from a Hollywood movie.

He blamed young people for causing a rise in Covid-19 when the real culprit was his government policies.

He lied that suicides had decreased during the Covid-19 pandemic. In fact, they were on the rise.

He lied that the government was merging its failed contact-tracing app with one developed by Apple and Google.

He received £100,000 in donations from horse racing organisations – and questions were asked about how strongly this influenced his decision to open Newmarket to horse racing during the early-2020 lockdown.

And now, this affair.

Hancock’s offences are legion. So is his incompetence. But Boris Johnson has stood by him throughout all of the above – possibly in the knowledge that, as long as Hancock is around, Johnson himself won’t take all the blame for the decisions of his government.

In times past, a cabinet minister like Hancock would have been off to “spend more time with his family” the moment a whisper of an indiscretion or lack of integrity made it into the newspapers.

That hasn’t happened yet with Hancock – but for how much longer can Johnson resist demands to sack his floundering flunkie?

The longer he delays, the more incompetent and weak Johnson will make himself seem.

Brexiteers’ justification for breaking international law on Brexit is illiterate. Why hasn’t Braverman resigned?

Suella Braverman: She used to chair a secret group of Brexit-supporting MPs and is now Attorney General. Yes, she is as daft as she looks.

In trying to humiliate a leading Remainer – and justify its own contempt for international law – Boris Johnson and his government have made the UK a laughing-stock once again.

And our Attorney General, Suella Braverman, should be offering up her resignation. Rather than uphold the rule of law, she has sided with a government that intends to break it, turning the UK into nothing better than a rogue state.

Almost as bad, she offered as justification for this lawbreaking a Supreme Court ruling that Parliament is sovereign in domestic matters – a ruling won by Remain campaigner Gina Miller in a challenge to previous Brexit legislation.

But the same Supreme Court ruling made it clear that this does not excuse the UK government from honouring its obligations under international law.

Here’s Braverman’s statement, as exulted by Brexiteers. I’ve found a more level-headed response to it:

What is the appropriate response? This:

Perhaps. This:

Mmm… How about two in-depth Twitter threads? First this:

(After that lesson in the law, I think the Secret Barrister may be allowed to advertise a book about it.)

And then there’s this:

It is not for members of the public to challenge this.

I have a feeling that the Tory government will face serious and well-funded legal challenges both from within the UK and outside.

I am concerned that this will lead to an equally serious financial penalty – a bill that, once again, the taxpayer will have to pay.

We always end up bailing out these incompetent Tories when we should be sending them to jail instead.

Last word goes to Mark Elliott (again):

It is par for the course in a government that is as bent as a nine-bob note.

But Suella Braverman’s resignation is definitely required.
