Home Secretary Suella Braverman’s appearances on the Sunday morning political shows really were a plane crash, weren’t they?
She was wrong on sex offences in the UK, blaming “British Pakistani grooming gangs” for the majority when, as Angela Rayner pointed out last week, 300 rapes are committed every day – mostly by white men – and Braverman’s police officers turn a blind eye:

And isn’t this response pertinent?
Unless and until the government pushes hard for unredacted publication of Jeffrey Epstein’s client list, nothing any of its ministers says about sex offenders can be taken seriously. https://t.co/S2ZFROH8Oz

Jeffrey Epstein may be described as the “groomer to the powerful”. Who did he supply with youngsters for sex? Why can’t the facts be told? Who is being protected?
Meanwhile, on Laura Kuennsberg’s show, Braverman insisted that Rwanda is a safe country to which our refugees can be sent. Is it, though?

She told Kuennsberg seven million people in the UK are out of work; in fact, official figures show the number to be much lower – just 1,253,000.
Are you trying to fool us with more lies @SuellaBraverman?
Does your “out of work” number include pensioners maybe? You know, elderly people who have reached the end of their working life?

And finally, while all this has been going on, it seems she’s another Tory who won’t get her expenses claim right:

It seems she
claimed almost £25,000 in expenses over five years to pay for her energy usage and other costs, while living rent-free at her parent’s house during visits to her constituency.
Such financial aids were created to prevent MPs who live outside of London from falling into debt while running two homes, however an investigation by the Mirror found that Ms Braverman uses them to cover the household bills on her £1.2million family home in Bushey, Herts.
Although her expenses do not go against the rules, the hardline Tory has been accused of taking advantage of loophole in the system.
Ms Braverman, who earns £67,505 on top of her MP salary of £84,144, told watchdogs she “fully funds” the home she stays at in Fareham, Hants. However, she failed to explain that the house is actually her parents’ – meaning she stays there rent-free.
Apparently that massive Ministerial salary isn’t enough for her – even though she’s clearly incapable of doing the job properly.
