bullyinglet's go over exactly what mr arbach said today did in a way that was intimidating at a meeting from work these are direct quotes he goes on to say this also involved an abuse or misuse of power in a way that undermines or humiliates in another incident the Deputy Prime Minister acted in a way that was intimidating going beyond what was necessary or appropriate in delivery critical feedback or comments you were also insulting by making unconstructive critical comments and let's get more from our political editor Andy Bell and the really great talking to you on the show there's a lot of detail on this it's not there and Rob has responded today what did you have to say?
Yes, Dan replied. I think it's fair to say that it's clearly because of his response. He's still furious that he had to quit. Let's first take a look at all this from his official resignation letter to Rishi sunak in which he. He says that while I feel compelled to accept the outcome of the investigation, he dismissed all but two of the
claimsfiled against me, I also believe the findings of two councils are flawed, and then went on to say why he thought this report was potentially difficult. and dangerous for the government, moving on from where it says that by setting the threshold for
bullyingso low, this inquiry has set a dangerous precedent that will encourage false complaints against
ministers and have a chilling effect on those pushing for change on behalf of their government and ultimately the British and in an article for the Daily Telegraph he says he goes further, says he believes he is the victim of a flawed process in which the normal rules of evidence and fairness were set aside, so even though he quit, it seems different to say so. he's not at all happy about it he stepped aside but he's been swaying while he did it what about a response from the
primeminister's office that's right the prime minister we have your official letter in response to the letter Dominic Robb's resignation report, which is very nice Dominic Rob in many ways, but the crucial part is where the Prime Minister says that you say you have correctly promised to resign if the report found any bullying findings, you kept your word, for which the Prime Minister clearly feels there was a finding. of bullying in this report the Prime Minister says there were flaws in the process but in the end he let go of his Deputy and Rob was a man working two jobs so who gets in is right Oliver Dowden comes in as Deputy Prime Minister. the Prime Minister didn't have to appoint a
deputybut he has Oliver downstairs and he'll continue to do his job running the cabinet office essentially the inner workings of the government if you like Dominic Robb there was also the attorney general he he will be succeeded in that role by Alex Chalk, who has already been at the Justice Department today.

Alex Chalk is a lawyer. He is also very loyal to Rishi Sunak. He supported it. move on, he enjoys the weekend, but where do you think he leaves Rishi Sunak? Well, I'm sure she saw that she does want to move on. He is being criticized by some, especially in the opposition, who say he should have gotten rid of Dominic Robb sooner. There's also criticism from various conservative MPS certainly on Twitter for example who feel maybe people should have fought harder to keep Dominic Robb because they think reporting his behavior is much more nuanced but I think when she saw that , he looked again at some of those words in this report, for example bullying persistently aggressive insulting a misuse of power humiliating I think Rishi Sunak looked at that and felt it was impossible to fight to hold on to his deputy, so Dominic Raab he went away.
