It is very disappointing to hear about the dispute that has been reported between the Home Office’s top civil servant, Sir Philip Rutnam, who has resigned and announced plans to sue the government for constructive dismissal after a series of clashes with the Home Secretary, Priti Patel.

Sir Philip has said he would step down after 33 years because he had become the “target of vicious and orchestrated campaign against him,” which he accused Patel of orchestrating.
