Former UK Home Secretary Suella Braverman, who was dismissed by Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, resigned from her position and publicly criticized him for being “weak” and failing to fulfill key policies and promises to the British people.
In a three-page letter, she stated that she had supported the Prime Minister based on firm assurances on key policies, implying that his actions were a betrayal of their agreement and a letdown to the nation.
Braverman accused Sunak of breaking promises related to reducing illegal migration, stopping migrant boats from crossing the English Channel, issuing statutory guidance to schools for the protection of biological sex, and fulfilling the North Ireland protocol.
She described the Prime Minister’s rejection of withdrawing from the European Convention on Human Rights as a way to push through asylum seeker plans as a “betrayal” and highlighted record election defeats and failed resets.
Braverman was dismissed after her comments about the police’s handling of a pro-Palestinian march, where she accused the police of bias and claimed they largely ignored “pro-Palestinian mobs”.
Her statements increased tensions at pro-Palestinian rallies, leading to increasing pressure for her dismissal from the cabinet.
