JEREMY CORBYN condemned a government “led by bullies” today amid misconduct allegations levelled against Home Secretary Priti Patel.
He also criticised “part-time Prime Minister” Boris Johnson for being absent and not launching an independent investigation into her conduct.
The Labour leader said that Ms Patel would be in a “clear” breach of the ministerial code if the “serious allegations” of bullying are found to be true.
Mr Corbyn said: “Why, without a proper investigation, has the Prime Minister defended the Home Secretary calling her fantastic and saying he absolutely has confidence in her?
“It’s not enough just to refer this to the Cabinet Office, the government must now call in an external lawyer as quite rightly suggested by the union for senior civil servants, the FDA.
“A minister in breach of the ministerial code cannot remain in office and should be dismissed.”
In his reply, Cabinet Office minister Michael Gove claimed that the in-house investigation is robust and fit for purpose.
