    Because the DWP (i.e. one or more of the DWP civil servants) caused her to leave the organisation.

    Because Patel is not their employer. A client has far less clout then an employer.

    Try getting out of the other side of bed for a change.

    You could try providing some concrete evidence to refute the statement, or constructing a line of debate which doesn't rely on having snide digs at other posters, particularly women.

    The statement
    does not warrant evidence to refute it.
    (Who are the women you refer to?)

    I think you'll find plenty of misogynistic content from the poster in question if you look. I for one am finding it tiresome.

    Interesting approach on a thread criticising a woman...

    criticising women for their behaviour is not inherently a problem. criticising women because they are women is.
    I’m surprised you can’t see the difference.

    I find this forum mostly gender neutral. I am not sure which of us are women, which are men or any other gender. Preferred pronouns might help.

    Mine are "Huh?" and "What?"

    Indeed they have. Both Corbyn and multiple Labour MPs repeated the allegations during PMQs yesterday.

    I agree it is shocking that the opposition might challenge the government on an important issue.

    The thing is...comments here exist in a tiny, affirming bubble which some mistakenly believe give them authority.

    Outside in the real world, where the earth is not flat, the country is supportive of the government and the Home Secretary's policies, to the extent of returning them with an 80-seat majority.

    There is a sense of howling at the wind here...

    They repeated the allegations - they did not MAKE the allegations.

    Supportive of the Home Secretary's POLICIES, possibly. That doesn't mean supportive of her methods.

    Would you be supportive of bullying & harrassment in the workplace in order to implement a policy?

    I am highly suspicious of coordinated allegations being made directly to the Labour Party.

    Not in the 285 constituencies that didn't return a Tory MP they aren't.

    Not necessarily, one can easily support a government policy or minister whilst voting the other way.

    And yet you criticise men for being men.
