Several ministers in Rishi Sunak’s government ‘have bullied civil servants’, says FDA union chair Dave Penman | Politics News

The head of the civil servants union told Sky News that some incumbent government ministers had “bullied employees”.

“There are concerns raised about some of the ministers, which is basically something that happens all the time in government,” Mr. Penman said.

“It’s not just this government. It’s every government. You know, there are dozens of ministers and stressful situations.

“And so at any given moment you’re bound to run into a situation where there are concerns about the conduct of ministers. That’s why what you’re seeing isn’t just about Dominic Raab.”

Over the past week, Mr. Raab has faced charges of bullying public officials.

Mr. Sunak said there were no formal complaints against his deputy.
