Just ran into a Tory MP who believes that bullying prime ministers aren’t such a big deal.
“Eden was a terrible bully, I’m sure that Churchill was as well…and as for Gladstone, well, he had furious rages,” he ponders. “If you want to work in 10 Downing Street you should be able to withstand a bit of tough treatment now and again.”
Not sure this attitude is shared by CCHQ of course. And no, I won’t name the MP.
