Senior civil servants allege that Gavin Williamson told them to “slit their throats” during what he felt was an ongoing campaign of bullying during his time as secretary of defense.

A Defense Department official told The Guardian Williamson newspaper that he made unusual remarks in front of other officials at a meeting and told them to “jump out a window” on another occasion.

Whitehall’s aide, who worked closely with the Cabinet, claimed that Williamson regularly “deliberately insulted and threatened” them.

Williamson, who served as secretary of defense from November 2017 to May 2019, was dismissed after leaks from the National Security Council, but was said to “yell and rage.”

A senior civil servant who later left the government said the abuse was so severe that a senior military aide who worked in the department later apologized for not calling it out.

Williamson denied bullying public officials and said he had a good relationship with them. I’m here.

Speaking at the Cop27 summit in Egypt, Rishi Sunak said: Of course I’d like to see the results, but it’s clearly poorly worded and unacceptable. That is why we welcome the fact that Gavin Williamson has expressed his regret, and we are now awaiting the outcome of the investigation.”

The latest allegation, despite being aware of Morton’s complaints, calls for the government to reappoint Williamson, a close political ally who is seen to have played a key role in his leadership campaign. After making the decision, he poses even more questions to the prime minister about his political decisions.

A text message published over the weekend included an angry protest at not being invited to the Queen’s funeral and the line that “everything has a price”.

Business secretary Grant Shaps said the message should not have been sent, telling Sky News: Turns out it must have been sent in a moment of frustration. Generally speaking, it’s much better to write things that you won’t regret later. ”

Labor and the Liberal Democrats called on Sunak to sack Williamson. Labor Party Speaker Annelise Dodds said Monday evening: “These allegations are very serious and speak to a toxic culture at the top of the Conservative Party. but appointed him anyway.
