    "Priti Patel reaches six-figure settlement with ex-Home Office chief Philip Rutnam

    Former permanent secretary sued government over alleged bullying by home secretary

    Priti Patel has reached a six-figure settlement with a senior civil servant following claims that he was forced out of his job for intervening in her alleged bullying of fellow staff, it has emerged.

    Sir Philip Rutnam, the former permanent secretary in the Home Office, had threatened to take the home secretary to an employment tribunal hearing in September.

    He also claimed he had been hounded out of his job for defending his staff, and was suing the government under whistleblowing laws."

      Maybe Priti & Philip Rutnam have higher standards?

      I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

          Does it cover his legal fees? Or are they separate?

              How is this not corruption?

              I'm not trying to be controversial or take the micky - but haven't a political party in power, just bought off a scandal with public funds, the day after a budget that says we have a deficit of historic levels?

              Is there another angle to be looking at this from?

                The other angle is that if this had gone to court, he would have got more - at least in the view of the legal team representing the Home Office. Hence the payout. There's a scandal here, but I don't think it is corruption - rather, it is the behaviour of the (almost) universally reviled Patel.

                  Shouldn't Priti have to foot the bill though, why is it the taxpayer when its a case against her? She wouldnt settle for 350k or whatever it is , but it's easy when its "someone else's money" . She should have to pay a personal penalty, not the public purse on her behalf.

                  My 2 cents obvs.

                    The government must have decided that they are liable to pay for her actions instead of hanging her out to dry.
