Suella Braverman quits as Home Secretary

Suella Braverman has resigned as Home Secretary, in part because she shared secure information on a private phone.

Here’s Sky News:

(Stick out the video through to Yvette Cooper’s speech because the first part of it really is an excellent takedown of the Truss administration.)

What was the second reason she had to go?

This Writer would like it to be her loose-lipped rants in the Commons chamber and media interviews.

Only yesterday, she accused Labour, the Lib Dems, Guardian readers and people who eat tofu of conspiring with Just Stop Oil against the government’s draconian attempts to crack down on protest:

Previously, she spoke about her “dream” of putting refugees and asylum-seekers onto planes to Rwanda.

These outbursts are not acceptable behaviour for a UK government minister; they belong more closely with some of the totalitarian governments of the first half of the 20th century.

But I don’t believe they are the second reason the lunacy of Braverman has been banished to the backbenches.

I look forward to finding out what it really was.

In the meantime, I note that in her resignation letter Braverman has attacked Liz Truss for reversing the insane economic policies that created so much economic instability over the last few weeks – and more.

She wrote: “I have concerns about the direction of this government.

“Not only have we broken key pledges that were promised to our voters, but I have had serious concerns about this government’s commitment to honouring manifesto commitments, such as reducing overall migration numbers and stopping illegal migration, particularly the dangerous small boats crossings.”

Braverman is the second Cabinet loss for Truss within a week and becomes the shortest-serving home secretary since World War Two, having lasted only 43 days in the job.

Her replacement is Grant Shapps.

    Suella Braverman’s dream re sending asylum seekers to Rwanda has just blown up her in face!! Bye bye Braverman don’t let the door hit you on the way out! Oh and you’ve committed a crime too by discussing security matters on a private phone!
