No investigation despite Braverman admitting wrongdoing over speeding fine

Suella Braverman and Rishi Sunak: is he too weak to sack her?

Rishi Sunak has said there will be no investigation into whether Suella Braverman breached the Ministerial Code over a speeding offence – even though she has admitted asking civil servants to arrange preferential treatment for her.

For the Code to have been breached, Braverman would have to have instructed Home Office civil servants to arrange a special one-on-one speed awareness course in order for her to avoid a fine and points on her driving licence.

The ministerial code requires ministers to ensure “no conflict arises” between their public duties and their private interests – and the speeding offence is a private matter.

In correspondence with prime minister Rishi Sunak, she has admitted asking civil servants to do that.

But Sunak has now insisted that there will be no investigation to determine whether she breached the Code.

Shades of Boris Johnson and Priti Patel!

That former prime minister let his Home Secretary off the hook after she was alleged to have bullied civil servants in three government departments. An investigation revealed that she had indeed done this but Johnson refused to accept it and his ethics adviser resigned instead.

Sunak came a decision after discussing the matter with his own ethics adviser, Sir Laurie Magnus.

Will we hear calls for Sir Laurie to go, if his judgement is so badly at fault?

    That greasy ex door to door salesman Rushi Sunak demonstrates he is just another mundane corrupt and rotten little fascist tory boy!!! As usual laws don’t apply to the fascist tories and Suella Braverman remains as a fake Home Secretary despite her deliberate attempt to avoid being fined for speeding!!

    The whole rotten and corrupt fake tory government needs to be ‘tossed in the sea’ because they are proving little england doesn’t have a democracy but we certainly have a corrupt and rotten fascist dictatorship!

      Yet more proof that MPs are above the law…Are the police bought and paid for? Is that why they are not doing their job of upholding the law, and prosecuting these MPs?
