“Home Secretary Priti Patel ‘deeply concerned’ by ‘false MI5 claims’”
Subtext: “Media reports that Home Secretary Priti Patel is distrusted by intelligence chiefs and bullied her staff have been dismissed as “false” by the government. Officials have denied that MI5 held back information from Ms Patel, following [allegations that officials lacked confidence in her abilities.”
It’s because she has hit the Home Office ground running, After years of May’s ‘light touch’ Patel is like a fox getting into the henhouse.
“She has also been accused of trying to force out Sir Philip Rutnam, the most senior civil servant in her department.”
The complacent career civil servants 'don’t like it up 'em, Captain Mainwaring, they don’t like it up ‘em.’ (only Brits will understand that bit)
