Rishi Sunak ‘comfortable’ with Dominic Raab keeping job despite bullying allegations

Prominent Remain campaigner Gina Miller has claimed that embattled deputy prime minister Dominic Raab bullied and demeaned her during an “aggressive” encounter in 2016.

Mr Raab, the justice secretary, is already facing a string of bullying allegations spanning different government departments throughout the past few years, all of which he denies.

In an exclusive article for The Independent, Ms Miller said she was “bullied and demeaned” by Mr Raab after he called her “stupid” and “naive” when they met at the BBC during the referendum campaign.

Mr Raab said they are “baseless and malicious claims”.

Elsewhere, prime minister Rishi Sunak has admitted his first 100 days in No 10 have been “challenging” while being interrogated by broadcasting heavyweight Piers Morgan.

The TalkTV host grilled Mr Sunak on a range of issues, from mounting Tory sleaze claims and the winter crisis in the NHS, to growing unrest in the public sector and deepening cost of living fears.
