Having seen her "apology" on the news, her tone didn't really imply it at all, in my opinion.

She should go in my opinion, but Boris dare not get rid of her because the electorate approve of her proposed tough stance on illegal immigrants. There would be an outcry. Whether she will deliver on her promise is another matter.


It would be funny if it wasnt so sad...Priti, that daughter of immigrants, against other immigrants.
It has been seen so often people forget where they come from themselves...


She's not against immigrants, she's against ILLEGAL immigrants!!..as is the vast majority of the British public!!

That's the vision of right-wing society - workplaces where the bosses can bully and swear at their employees. Anyone that complains is wrong and doubtless liable to be sacked if they don't suck it up.

A good advertisement for people to sign up to a union.

What I see as the most vile behavior is the fact that Boris went through the whole sham of an investigation knowing full well that he was never going to admonish Patel in any fashion. In doing so he has greatly increased the trauma of those bullied, created an even greater atmosphere of fear in the Civil Service, who now know clearly that their political leaders don't value them as human beings and he has cost a good and honorable man his career.

They were not bullied!!! they were told in no uncertain terms get their finger out and get some work done, they had had to put their papers/books/crosswords/tablets away and do the work the tax payers pay them for..if that is classed as bullying then god help us all!!!

In your last post you said she shouted and swore at her employees - yes that is bullying and people should not be subject to that at work, and they are entitled to object to that.

Yes, but not just right-wing society, imo.
Right-wing, left wing, centre -makes no difference....bullying happens everywhere and should be stopped.

Praise when not really deserved seems to have become endemic in modern society. It starts off by mummy telling you what a wonderful little person you are because she has a guilt trip for going out to work. This is followed by teachers not being allowed to criticise you, because that's termed abuse, but only allowed to tell you how well you have done when you get 1%....not that the results are posted on a notice board because that creates divisiveness and shows that some are better than others!

If I was told that I was a useless little so and so it made me stick out my lower lip and think 'I will show you', not crawl under a table to have a weep.

Then we wonder why teenage suicides are rising; surely it can't be because reality hits them like a sledgehammer when they enter the big wide world and find that they have to stand on their own two feet and aren't really much good at anything!

No idea what Priti said nor whether it was deserved but it never hurts to feel the whip occasionally to keep you on your toes and let you know what's expected of you.

If the only way to get a job done is to shout, stamp your foot or crack a whip, then you obviously lost the respect of your workforce long ago, and shows you are unqualified to do the job.
Sounds like Priti should have left her post long ago.
