What have you read that casts doubt on the outcome of the Enquiry please?
Multiple newspaper reports saying the same things.
Even Patel herself had admitted the behaviour and has (sort of) apologised. She did NOT declare "I never did it" but rather that she "was sorry if people were upset by it [her behaviour]".
I have no idea if the guy running the inquiry talked to Patel or not but wonder how that would have helped. The issue came down to whether or not she was bullying. How many bullies admit their behaviour when questioned (as most don't see anything wrong with their behaviour). As Jonathan posted earlier in the thread any "unintentional" is totally irrelevant.
If the Civil Service were un-cooperative then that is a totally separate issue and certainly does not justify bullying (and reflects badly on her capabilities as one crucial skill for somebody in her role is to get on with others and bring them on-side, screaming, shouting and swearing not usually effective in that regard).
