Dominic Raab "values" civil servants in his department, the Ministry of Justice has insisted, after bullying claims have emerged against him.

Mr Raab was reappointed as justice secretary and deputy prime minister by Rishi Sunak last month, having held the roles between September 2021 and September 2022 under Boris Johnson, but having been sacked by Liz Truss for her short tenure in office.

However, his return to the MoJ was not welcomed by some, according to the Guardian, which said around 15 senior civil servants in his private office were offered "respite or a route out" due to concerns some were still traumatised from his previous tenure.

Sources said department chiefs held a meeting with the group and acknowledged Mr Raab's reappointment could cause them anxiety, with some staff members in tears and choosing to move on.

However, the paper also cited sources suggesting a couple of staff members have since returned.

Multiple MoJ sources also said he had previously created a "culture of fear" in the department, alleging he was "demeaning rather than demanding" with civil servants, and that he was "very rude and aggressive", adding: "[He] wasn't just unprofessional, he was a bully".

The newspaper also claimed the permanent secretary, Antonia Romeo, warned Mr Raab to treat staff with respect on his return, with one source, who was not in the room at the time, saying she had "read him the riot act".

Asked for a response to the allegations, an MoJ spokesperson said: "There is zero tolerance for bullying across the civil service.

"The deputy prime minister leads a professional department, driving forward major reforms, where civil servants are valued, and the level of ambition is high."

A source in the department also told Sky News they would deny any suggestion of bullying, saying Mr Raab "prides himself on his professionalism and has a good working relationship with the officials who he rates very highly".

They also said he had been a minister in multiple government departments for many years and had never faced a formal complaint.

Calls for investigation

The allegations come days after former cabinet minister Gavin Williamson resigned from government after facing multiple bullying accusations, and also as questions remain over the re-hiring of Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who was brought back onto the frontbench six days after committing a security breach and breaking the ministerial code.

Labour's deputy leader Angela Rayner called the claims made against Mr Raab "deeply troubling" and said they raised "yet more questions about Rishi Sunak's judgement".

She added: "With each new scandal and grubby deal, it becomes more obvious that he is a weak leader, who puts party management before the national interest.

"He claimed zero tolerance for bullying, promised a government of integrity and pledged to urgently appoint an ethics adviser, yet is falling far short on every promise. Rishi Sunak is already showing he is not just failing to stop the rot but letting it fester."

She joined calls by the Liberal Democrats for an investigation into the allegations against Mr Raab.

Lib Dem deputy leader Daisy Cooper said: "These latest reports cannot be brushed under the carpet by Rishi Sunak. He must launch an investigation into Raab with immediate effect.

"No staff, whether in the civil service or any other sector, should be subjected to working with or for a bully."

But colleagues who worked under the justice secretary elsewhere leapt to his defence, with Tory MP Eddie Hughes said: "When I got my first job as his PPS (parliamentary private secretary), I was told Dom was demanding. 'He's very hard working and expects others to be too'. I was delighted. I wanted to work for someone who took their role seriously.

"We got on great from the start. Never saw him be rude to anyone."

Another Conservative Rachel Maclean replied to Mr Huges tweet, saying: "Neither did I when I worked with him on joint projects when I was in the Home Office. He has high standards which are needed to deliver for the British people."

You cannot make it up.

Dominic Raab was on Friday accused of hurling tomatoes across a table in a fit of rage as he was embroiled in a bullying storm.

This is the most juvenile post you have ever done. Not even toilet brush boy does this sort of thing. From now on you will be treated with the contempt that you deserve.

There you have it folks. The Chief Sow's minibudget cost us 30 billion pounds. Very nice if you can get it.
Krazy is claiming that it was just the speed of the policy that was wrong. Can you imagine any government giving tax cuts anybody and just put it on the tab?
Never mind who they were giving it too.

NO! I've done much better ones than that.

You're upset though. :(

Let me help with an injection of reality.

AFAIK That was my first YouTube effort in here actually. Conversely, you've been posting piss-taking ones for a long time. Including your recent "Charlie Brown" effort aimed at me. How would you rate that for "juvenile"? Or, are we up to our .......in hypocrisy again?

Further on the contempt issue. Don't you think piling into a thread with one of your (not very) smart-ass suck-up comments:

Lordo wrote:I am afraid Kiks ain't gonna be any help there. He needs the men in white coats and off to the funny farm. Only the best medical care will suffice. As far as I am aware Kiks ain't no medical man like.

qualifies?

As far as your oft expressed bitching about spelling checks is concerned I've explained that and........................ I think I've really helped you increase your credibility as a supposed "intellectual". You should be more grateful.

Now - I can post this shit quid pro quo - and if that's what it takes I will - as long as you like. As always, it's up to you. Don't though think that, having on a daily basis for 6 years slagged off my country - and I really couldn't give a fuck about any particular political party - it lets you off that hook. :wink:
