Speeding fine dumps Braverman in deep water

Never mind channel-crossing migrants – Home Secretary Suella Braverman has dumped herself in deep water (metaphorically) after it was alleged that she instructed civil servants to arrange a one-to-one speed awareness driving course after being caught speeding.

If she did indeed tell her staff to do this, it would be a (minor) breach of the Ministerial Code.

Complicating the matter is the possibility that she might even want to use this as a springboard to get out of Rishi Sunak’s Cabinet, so she can position herself to make a bid for the Conservative Party leadership in the near future.

… It would also get her out of answering difficult question on the immigration figures that are due to be published later this week and are expected to be much larger than she has promised.

Panellists on the BBC’s Politics Live show became quite festive in discussing her predicament.

Viewers may particularly enjoy Clive Lewis’s use of the word “turdage”, shortly after the 50–second mark.
