Top Home Office civil servants are furious at Boris Johnson’s decision to keep Priti Patel as home secretary despite an internal report that concluded she had bullied officials, their union has said.

As the chancellor, Rishi Sunak, defended Patel on Sunday, saying ministers had sometimes to be “direct” in pushing forward change, the FDA union said members in the Home Office had complained about what they felt were double standards.

Sir Alex Allan, the prime minister’s adviser on ministerial standards, quit his post on Friday after Johnson contradicted his report by vigorously defending the home secretary and keeping her in her role.

In a published summary of the long-delayed report, Allan said Patel’s conduct had “amounted to behaviour that can be described as bullying”, and highlighted instances of shouting and swearing. He concluded she had breached the ministerial code, even if unintentionally.

The studio’s aim for the 50-square-metre renovation was to break the boundary between the commercial space and the street.

To do so it designed a U-shaped glass box, which contains the coffee counter, till and preparation area, in place of a regular facade. The box is surrounded by a courtyard-style seating area.

The Best Smart Bathroom Devices, from Bluetooth Mirrors to Wifi Showers

The patent for the first mass-market shower radio was issued in 1985, and for years it was the gold standard of bathroom technology. All your favorite FM and AM stations, with crystal-clear sound from a speaker that wouldn’t electrocute you in the shower? Incredible! But in 2020, the shower radio is, thankfully, no longer the pinnacle of bathroom tech. Today, there are plenty of connected bathroom devices designed to do more than sing along to classic rock while you shampoo your hair.

We’re talking toilets that know exactly warm you like the seat, toothbrushes that coach you to better oral health, and a shower that lets you choose your water temperature down to the degree. The bathroom might never be your favorite room in the house, but these devices can make the time you spend there more pleasant than you can imagine.

Here are some of the best smart devices
