Dominic Rennie Raab is a UK politician who was Deputy Prime Minister, Secretary of State for Justice and Lord Chancellor from October 2022 until April 2023, and earlier from 2021 to September 2022. Previously, he was First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs from July 2019 until September 2021.

On 21 April 2023, Dominic Raab resigned following a months-long independent investigation into formal complaints about his bullying behaviour from a number of civil servants.[1] In a letter to Prime Minister Rishi Sunak published on Twitter, Raab said the inquiry had set a dangerous precedent, but that he would remain supportive of the government.

“I called for the inquiry and undertook to resign, if it made any finding of bullying whatsoever. I believe it is important to keep my word,” Raab said.[2]


Raab was born to a Czech-born Jewish refugee.


Dominic Raab was a Foreign Office lawyer and David Davis protégé.[3]

A member of the Conservative Party, Dominic Raab has been the Member of Parliament (MP) for Esher and Walton since the UK/2010 General Election.[4]

In April 2020, Raab became de facto UK Prime Minister as Boris Johnson was hospitalised with COVID-19.[5]

On 24 April 2020, Craig Murray wrote:

"Beyond any doubt, it would have been Dominic Raab’s personal decision to grant a fake diplomatic immunity to Anne Sacoolas and permit her to leave the country."[6]

In August 2021 he did not quarantine when coming back from France. Because it's a Double standard.[7]



Raab was a Vote Leave campaigner. He quit Theresa May’s Cabinet in protest over the Brexit deal he helped negotiate.


“So early relaxation [of the UK COVID-19 lockdown] would do more damage to the economy over a long period... the government has decided the current measures must remain in place for at least the next three weeks... We’ve already sacrificed too much to give up now... so we need to be patient a while longer... now is not the moment to give the coronavirus a second chance.”
