What on Earth is ‘Security Risk Suella’ Braverman doing back in the Cabinet?

Suella Braverman: by her own admission, she is a risk to the security of the United Kingdom. So doesn’t it undermine Rishi Sunak’s claim to be putting “integrity and accountability” back into government for her to be re-appointed as Home Secretary?

One of the most vicious right-wingers in Rishi Sunak’s new Cabinet may find her tenure cut short before she’s had a chance to start – because of her own decisions.

Suella Braverman only quit the role of Home Secretary last week – most probably in order to attack Liz Truss in her resignation letter – but was re-appointed to the job by new prime minister Rishi Sunak yesterday.

The pretext for her resignation was a breach of the ministerial code in which she was said to have sent classified documents from her personal email.

Now this has come back to haunt her, because Labour has joined the Liberal Democrats in demanding an inquiry into whether she is an ongoing security risk and her appointment makes a mockery of Sunak’s claim to be putting “integrity and accountability” back into government.

Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper criticised the appointment yesterday (October 25), accusing Sunak of putting “party before country” and tweeting, “Security is too important for this irresponsible Tory chaos.”

She expanded on this in a letter to Cabinet Secretary Simon Case, calling for an urgent probe into “this and other possible security breaches”.

She added that “the public has a right to know that there are proper secure information procedures in place to cover the person who has been given charge of our national security”.

In her resignation letter last week, Braverman acknowledged the mistake, calling it a “technical infringement” and adding that much of the content in the document she emailed had already been briefed to MPs.

The claim to be putting “party before country” is justified because Braverman is from the extreme right wing of the Conservative Party. Not a natural Sunak supporter, she only announced she was backing him late on Sunday, when it became clear that Boris Johnson would not be standing as a candidate in the Tory leadership contest.

Her appointment is therefore seen as an attempt by Sunak to win support from all wings of his party. It also trumpets an intention to take a hard line on immigration by reappointing the minister who previously said it was her “dream” to see Rwanda deportation flights take off, and expressed a desire to act tough on small refugee boats crossing the English Channel.

Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesperson Alistair Carmichael said: “Suella Braverman’s appointment makes a mockery of Rishi Sunak’s claims to be bringing integrity to Number 10.

“There must be a full independent inquiry by the Cabinet Office into her appointment, including any promises Sunak made to her behind closed doors.”

He said Braverman should be sacked if it is confirmed that she “repeatedly broke the ministerial code and threatened national security”.

Her reappointment has also sparked outrage among the commentatorati, including the following from Russell Kane, which I recommend you don’t watch if you are offended by extremely strong language:

Alternatively, try this from Professor Tim Wilson who attacks Braverman’s politics, comparing Suella Braverman’s dream of “misery, contempt and insanity” with Martin Luther King’s dream of “optimism”:

Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, insisted Braverman had shown integrity by apologising for breaking the rules. He said Sunak had accepted her apology and chose to re-appoint her because she had “very, very recent” experience of the Home Office.

“Clearly the PM wants to make sure that the department can deliver from day one.”

But he didn’t sound very convincing.

It is hard to defend a minister whose brief is to focus on crime when she only admitted committing one herself – last week. Let’s look forward to watching Sunak make a stab at it in Prime Minister’s Questions.

Liz Truss to ditch Boris Johnson’s planned energy law – in postcode lottery bid to bring down bills?

Energy plan: Liz Truss wants to bring bills down – but her plan seems likely to create a postcode lottery across the UK.

Here’s an example of why politicians are infuriating.

Legislation that was intended to change energy markets in favour of the consumer – launched by Boris Johnson – looks set to be ditched in favour of a mixed bag of new measures cobbled together by Jacob Rees-Mogg.

Johnson’s Energy Bill would have changed everything from carbon dioxide transport to carbon capture and civil nuclear power production.

But the arrival of Liz Truss at 10 Downing Street means priorities have changed.

First, she wants to decouple electricity prices from the global gas price – as renewable energy is now nine times cheaper than gas. This seems a sensible policy.

Secondly, Truss wants to introduce “locational pricing”, allowing areas with significant levels of renewable energy production, such as Scotland, to purchase energy at cheaper rates.

The aim is to incentivise the private sector to build extra capacity, a change that would boost wind and solar power.

But doesn’t it seem like a way to turn yet another once-nationalised service into a postcode lottery?

Lawsuit launched against Met Police for failing to properly investigate Boris Johnson and Partygate

How will the Met Police justify this? Boris Johnson is pictured toasting departing Downing Street comms chief Lee Cain at a leaving party on November 13, 2020, that the prime minister told Parliament he never attended.

Take a look at this:

Here are the details:

We are, today, issuing formal proceedings against the Met Police for their apparent continued failure to properly investigate Boris Johnson’s attendance at three lockdown gatherings, in November and December 2020 and January 2021, and their refusal to answer our legitimate questions about how they reached this decision.

The public have a right to know what really went on inside the Partygate investigation. The Met’s actions have raised grave concerns about the deferential way in which they are policing those in power. It stands in stark contrast to how ordinary people were policed during lockdown.

It was only after we threatened to sue the Met in January 2022 that they agreed to investigate at all and the Prime Minister was eventually fined for attending a lockdown gathering in June 2020.

We’ve given the Met multiple opportunities to explain why he was reportedly not sent questionnaires regarding these three other gatherings, nor issued with fixed penalty notices for attending them, when a number of civil servants and officials who did received both.

On 15 June, we wrote to the Met, giving them a week to finally live up to their duty to be honest and upfront with the public.

Rather than work with us in a spirit of transparency, or address to the substantive issues raised in our case, their response focuses on our right to bring this action at all (known as ‘standing’). Yet even here, they haven’t properly explained themselves. We asked them who, if not us, would have standing and they refused to answer.

We strongly believe that Good Law Project and our co-claimant, former senior Met Officer Lord Paddick, have standing to represent the public interest in this matter. If we aren’t allowed to bring this claim, we don’t believe anyone else will be in a position to do so.

So now we’re forced to sue the Met for a second time.

Lord Paddick: “Members of the public will have seen Boris Johnson raising a glass at a party that he was apparently not even questioned about, and thought ‘If that had been me, I would have been fined.’ We are determined that the Prime Minister should be held to the same standard as the rest of us.”

From its failure to hold the Prime Minister and those around him to account for their lockdown breaches, to shocking reports of institutional misogyny, discrimination and sexual harassment, the public’s faith in the Met has been shaken to the core this year. This is their moment to finally begin repairing the damage their inaction has done.

Our challenge is grounded in a single, simple idea: for the law to have any meaning, it must apply equally to us all. The Met must explain their seeming lack of action in this matter. We won’t stop until the full story is uncovered.

The Met have until 22 July to respond. We will keep you updated.

Mark Drakeford attacks UK Government plan to repeal Welsh trade union law

Mark Drakeford: This Site really needs to get another image of him.

So much for devolution, eh?

Wales’ First Minister Mark Drakeford has launched a scathing attack on UK Government plans to scrap a law made in Wales on how trade unions operate in Welsh public services.

The law, brought in five years ago, banned employers from bringing in agency staff to replace striking public sector workers.

So the idea is to stop public sector workers striking in order to have enough pay to, you know, survive by making it possible for low-paid agency workers to be brought in instead. Is that right?

The UK Government’s plan would see it repeal the Trade Union Act (Wales) 2017, which applies to devolved Welsh public bodies and to trade unions in public services delivered by devolved Welsh public bodies including the Welsh NHS, local authorities, schools, fire services and Welsh Government sponsored bodies in Wales.

It says it wants trade union legislation to “apply equally across Great Britain”.

But isn’t it the point of devolution that the different countries can do things in different ways?

Mark Drakeford told the BBC Today programme that it is “absolutely disgraceful that the Westminster Government announced its intention to do this without a single word to the Welsh Government or Welsh Parliament which passed this legislation”.

“We discovered it tucked away in an explanatory memorandum, it just speaks volumes of the disrespectful agenda this Government has towards devolution.

“It’s nonsense, isn’t it, the idea you’ll find an agency worker capable of driving a train, an agency worker capable of operating a signal box. These are hugely safety critical roles we’re talking about. This is just a piece of nonsense dreamt up by a Tory Government.”

Geidt resigned because he wouldn’t ‘cover’ for Johnson’s law-breaking

Lord Geidt: he has spoken out to clear up confusion about his reason for resigning as Boris Johnson’s ethics advisor – and the reason is clear: Johnson is determined to continue law-breaking and Geidt wouldn’t be a part of it.

So now we know.

Lord Geidt did not resign because he objected to plans for steel tariffs that might breach international law.

He resigned because he refused to give advanced cover to the prime minister – Boris Johnson – where there is contemplation of doing anything that may breach international (or indeed national) law.

To This Writer, it seems clear that Geidt was concerned that he might be creating a precedent that would give Johnson carte blanche for unlimited law-breaking in the future.

How sad that it has taken three days since his resignation for this to be revealed.

You can find out how the story developed on the BBC by reading articles here

Here...

Here

Here

And here. They reveal much of the way the UK’s government has been trying to break the law while misleading the people about it, it seems.

And Geidt’s resignation confirms that, after Partygate, Boris Johnson is determined to continue breaking the law.

Why aren’t we seeing renewed calls for him to go?

It’s big, but neither ambitious nor impressive: Boris Johnson’s plan for new laws

On the attack: Boris Johnson has unveiled no fewer than 38 Bills and draft Bills that will clamp down hard on the people of the UK while denying any help to deal with the crises facing us.

Boris Johnson his revealed a plan for 38 new laws in the Queen’s Speech at the State Opening of Parliament, delivered in her absence by Prince Charles.

The Prince may have been mortified that it fell to him to report such a mess of half-baked ideas, attempts to dodge democracy, and above all failure to address the burning issues facing the people of the United Kingdom due to the incompetence of Johnson’s nearly three years as prime minister (and almost 12 years of Conservative failure in total).

There are no plans to address the cost-of-living crisis that is already crippling the ability of the poorest in society – millions of whom are already having to go without food on a regular basis – and threatening to harm millions more in the future as another increase in energy prices and wider-spread inflation hits families.

The government is putting forward an Energy Security Bill to “accelerate our transition to more secure, more affordable and cleaner homegrown energy supplies”. But this won’t help anybody for many years – and it includes an expansion of dirty nuclear energy that will make the UK a target for disasters like Chernobyl and Fukushima, and will fill the country with nuclear waste.

Johnson has claimed that his aim is to build a high-skills, high-pay economy, and that this will protect the population in the future. But he has been criticised for failing to draft an employment bill to protect workers’ rights, thereby leaving them open to exploitation.

On the other hand, there are plans to clamp down on political protest: the Public Order Bill would create a criminal offence, with a maximum sentence of 12 months, of “interfering with key national infrastructure” such as airports, railways and printing presses. This would also make it illegal to obstruct major transport works such as HS2.

Home Secretary Priti Patel says the changes are needed to deal with a “self-indulgent minority who seem to revel in causing mayhem and misery”. Doesn’t that more accurately describe the Conservative government of which she is a member?

And as part of what we’re told are seven Bills to capitalise on opportunities (if you can call them that) created by Brexit, a new Bill of Rights will show how Johnson intends to scrap your human rights and replace them with a series of privileges to be granted you by your Tory overlords, that may be changed whenever they feel like it. It has been suggested that this will not replace primary legislation, though.

A possibly-euphemistic Brexit Freedoms Bill will give the Tories power to change EU laws that were copied into the UK’s statute book after the country left the European Union – which should also ring alarm bells among members of the population who know that this signifies a removal, not expansion, of our freedoms.

Another Bill will set out the framework in which Nadine Dorries will be able to push through her undemocratic plan to privatise Channel 4 – after a government consultation found that 96 per cent of the population don’t want it to happen.

The list goes on and on – but most of the items on it are described in only vague terms. Many of them are plans to relegate certain forms of lawmaking to what’s known as “secondary legislation” – statutory instruments that are signed off by ministers rather than enjoying a democratic vote in Parliament. These may be seen as assaults on democracy and steps toward dictatorship.

You can spot these for yourself in the lists provided by news organisations, for example here, here and here.

Worst of all is the fact that this programme of attacks against you will continue, even if Boris Johnson is removed from power.

Johnson’s call for P&O boss to quit after illegally sacking workers could backfire on him

It makes perfect sense. If P&O has sacked 800 workers because UK employment law made them the easiest to ditch, why shouldn’t their British boss go with them?

The prime minister has backed calls for the boss of P&O Ferries to resign over the no-notice sackings of 800 staff.

Boris Johnson supported Transport Secretary Grant Shapps in urging Peter Hebblethwaite to step down after his “brazen” law breaking, No 10 said.

He admitted to MPs that he broke the law by not consulting workers but said he would do the same again if he had to.

Mr Hebblethwaite prompted further anger when he told the transport committee P&O “did choose not to consult” on the move and “did not believe there was any other way to do this”.

Of course, Boris Johnson has painted himself into a corner now.

By saying a boss should resign for breaking the law, he’ll be a hypocrite if he refuses to do the same, should police fine him for breaking lockdown rules and attending any of the now-infamous Downing Street parties.

Who’s paying Boris Johnson’s legal bills?

This Site is not the only one to comment on the carefully-worded statements made by Boris Johnson when he has come to the Commons to talk about the lockdown-busting Downing Street parties.

They sound as though they were drafted by a lawyer to be as bland, as content-less, as possible.

They certainly don’t sound like Johnson’s own work; let’s face it – he simply isn’t capable of that.

He says he isn’t using taxpayers’ money to get legal advice.

So, how is he paying for it?

It’s not only a valid question, but an important one.

Think of the trouble he caused himself by asking Lord Brownlow to find money for refurbishment work on the Downing Street flat he inhabits.

Evidence suggests that, asking for the cash, Johnson indicated that he would give consideration to Brownlow’s plan for a “Great Exhibition” to boost post-Brexit Britain.

That has led the Labour Party to submit an accusation of bribery to the police.

So perhaps it is no wonder that both Downing Street and Johnson himself are being tight-lipped about the source of his legal advice.

But he is a public servant and the public have a right to know, in order to ensure that the rule of law is not suffering further at the hands of this hooligan.

Braverman rants about ‘democracy’ to protect Johnson. What does he have to do with that?

Suella Braverman: her appearances in the Commons made her look like a child showing off in front of her elders.

It seems there’s more in need of fixing than government working practices in Downing Street – including the mental health of members of the administration.

Here’s the Attorney General, Suella Braverman, apparently having a breakdown rather than answering a simple question:

Democracy? Brexit? Covid-19?

No wonder Rupa Huq was staring at her in disbelief.

Boris Johnson trampled on democracy almost from the moment he got into Downing Street with his illegal prorogation of Parliament – as Rupa Huq mentioned in her question – that was an insult to the Queen as it dragged her into his dishonesty.

His Brexit has been so successful that it costs the UK £727 per second. That’s £63 million a day, £440 million per week, lost because of him. It was supposed to deliver UK citizens a dividend of £350 million per week so, by his own standards, Johnson has cheated us of nearly £800 million per week.

And his response to Covid-19 has caused the deaths of at least 180,000 UK citizens, according to the Office of National Statistics.

Suella Braverman is the Attorney General – supposedly the government’s most senior legal advisor. She was talking utter rubbish in response to a legitimate question – and failed to answer the question itself.

This Writer’s opinion is that – given that Parliament does not accept that the government is capable of intentionally lying – the only possible justification for that failure is some form of mental ill-health.
