The Ombudsman has protested to the Speaker about the assault on his office in the Labour-leaning media. You can read his letter here: Ombudsman’s letter to the Speaker

It is quite obvious that these systematic and serious attempts at undermining the Ombudsman have been orchestrated by the government/Labour Party. The two are now working in tandem, with the General Workers Union as axe-man.

And it’s proving very difficult to convince fervent Labour supporters on the internet that no, the Ombudsman does not work for the government, is not part of the government, and is not accountable to the government. That is exactly why he wrote to the Speaker of the House and not to the Prime Minister.
