British Deputy Minister Resigns

  • United Kingdom Deputy Prime Minister Dominic Raab resigned from his position following allegations of bullying, he announced on Friday.
  • Raab’s behavior was reviewed by an independent investigator and was prompted by eight complaints about his actions while acting as foreign secretary, Brexit secretary, and justice secretary. Prime Minister Rishi Sunak received the investigator’s report on Thursday.
  • “I called for the inquiry and undertook to resign, if it made any finding of bullying whatsoever.

He added that the review dismissed all but two of the complaints against him and said those two findings are “flawed and set a dangerous precedent for the conduct of good government.”
