Suella Braverman presents as a racist. Is Liz Truss really determined to keep her?

We need to talk about Suella.

This daughter of a Kenyan family who came to the UK as refugees has spoken of her “dream” to deport her family’s fellow refugees to an internment camp in Rwanda without conducting any checks on whether they deserve to remain in the UK or not.

If you can stomach it, you might be interested in watching her speech at the Conservative Party conference earlier in the week:

She has sparked a huge amount of commentary – of course:

Professor Tim Wilson points out: “We cannot deport people until our paperwork and theirs is properly processed. And hospitality to the disadvantaged runs through our civilisation. We ignore that at our peril. Yes, there will be cheats who take advantage of our goodness but we cannot allow them- the miscreants- to dictate our behaviour and our policy! I have difficulty understanding how this policy was conceived but I cannot understand how we can be represented by someone so callous and brutal that she DREAMS of such toxic brutality?”

Here’s his video comment:

Here’s Novara Media’s take on it:

It was discussed on the BBC’s Politics Live today (October 6):

Clearly the views put forward by this Parliamentarian are abhorrent to large numbers of people on all sides of the political spectrum.

Yet Liz Truss – who has admitted that she doesn’t mind being unpopular – is determined to keep Braverman in post to push through legislation that will make this inhumane (some might say inhuman) policy workable.

Truss also reversed her policy to scrap the 45p top rate of income tax because it was unpopular, though, so it seems we cannot trust her word.

Is she planning to pull the usual Tory trick – ditch the unpopular politician but keep the unpopular policy she champions?

    The Nazis in Germany dreamed of deporting all German Jews and then they decided on another ‘final solution!’ Suella Braverman is voicing what so many racist individuals living in the UK believe and that is all migrants/asylum seekers must be deported from the UK! There’s no room for them say these racists and as always dehumanising them is prime fascism propaganda!

    Braverman is another vile fascist tory and the fact her parents were given right to enter the UK shows she has no compassion whatsoever for migrants/asylum seekers! Just prior to outbreak of WW II the UK government refused to allow refugee Jewish women, children and men to enter little england!! Nothing changes in little england which remains a vile racist fascist state!
