It gets worse.

Full marks to them though for still being alive and making a living out of 50 year old songs. Are any of the current line-up original members of the band?

Not a band I've ever listened to (despite being told some demos I did back in the 90s sound like them!) but I have an idea there are a few 'versions' containing original members playing their old stuff on the circuit. I guess only one member has the right to use the name.

To be fair there's not a lot going on down that neck of the woods, you have to make your own entertainment.

Martin Rowson described Williamson as having "the face of a spiteful rent boy".
And now I see Raab is is being accused of abusive behaviour towards civil servants.

Martin Rowson described Williamson as having "the face of a spiteful rent boy".
And now I see Raab is is being accused of abusive behaviour towards civil servants.

Senior civil servants at the Ministry of Justice were offered “respite or a route out” of the department when Dominic Raab was reappointed last month, amid concerns that some were still traumatised by his behaviour during a previous stint there.
Several sources told the Guardian that about 15 staff from the justice secretary’s private office were taken into a room where departmental chiefs acknowledged they may be anxious about his behaviour and gave them the option of moving roles.
Some of the civil servants were said to have been in tears during the meeting and several subsequently decided to move to other positions in the department, with one thought to be considering leaving entirely, although sources suggested a couple of staff had since returned.
It is also understood that Antonia Romeo, the MoJ permanent secretary, had to speak to Raab when he returned to the department to warn him that he must treat staff professionally and with respect amid unhappiness about his return. One source, who was not in the room at the time, claimed she had “read him the riot act”.

Or maybe get back to the 20th Century. Unless it never used to be reported, bullying civil servants doesn't appear to have been a major problem in previous administrations of either political hue back then. This appears to be a more modern phenomenon of this century and the Conservatives in particular.

The problem seems to be the government are trying to implement policies that may not be legal.
This is what happens when you try to implement unpopular policies. You have to bully the civil service to get things done. Because the civil service are quite rightly pushing back against things they know to be wrong.
