Following continuing revelations that the Justice Secretary has repeatedly abused and bullied civil servants in his employ, MP for Esher and Walston has forcefully insisted he is no bully.
Raab’s behaviour has potentially left the government open to legal claims of bullying and constructive dismissal from victims of the cabinet minister..
Addressing reporters outside his underground lair, Raab defended himself against the accusations saying, “Oh, those useless overweight civil servants accused me of bullying from day one.
“Just because I’ve mercilessly intimidated and mocked them and the rest of those loyal, hard-working staff since I became their overlord – I mean boss – doesn’t mean I am a bully, it just means they’re all a bunch snowflakes that need smacking into shape.
“But honestly, intimidation is all part of being a good leader. Just look at Scar from the Lion King. There’s someone who knew how to lead and motivate.
“Putting the fear of God into my subordinates doesn’t make me a bully, it just makes me effective in the eyes of my bosses – who are the people who run the Tory party – and anyone who says I am a bully will get a proper good smack in the face; it’s only fair.”
He added, “Anyway, have you noticed that I’m always smiling, have you not seen that? If I was a horrible person, like these snowflakes claim, would I have this weird smirk on my face all the time?
“No, of course I wouldn’t. Now piss off.”
