Boris Johnson has called the Home Secretary by the nickname “Prittster” and Twitter cannot get over it.
The PM’s adviser, Sir Alex Allan, conducted a report into allegations of bullying against Priti Patel, arguing that Patel had “not consistently met the high standard expected of her” and that she has breached the ministerial code with her behaviour, as reported by The Evening Standard.
However, the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, disagreed with Sir Alex Allan and judged that Priti Patel had not ruptured the ministerial code.
According to The Times, Boris Johnson then sent a text in a WhatsApp group chat encouraging them to “form a square around the Prittster”.
While Sir Alex Allan has just resigned from his government role as PM’s adviser after Patel’s apology, Twitter cannot get over Priti Patel’s nickname given by Boris Johnson.
Who is the Prittster?
The nickname “Prittster” was given to Priti Sushil Patel by PM Boris Johnson.
