LONDON (MandyNews) – UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has fired Suella Braverman as Interior Minister. The move is part of a broader cabinet reshuffle expected ahead of next year’s general election.
Braverman, known for her right-wing stance, faced criticism for her recent op-ed in The Times, which disregarded Downing Street’s guidance and accused London police of political bias in protests management.
Braverman’s recent op-ed in The Times, which defied Downing Street’s guidance and accused London police of political bias, was seen as a significant overstep, challenging the government’s handling of protests.
Her statement on social media, labeling homelessness a “lifestyle choice,” sparked outrage from the public and fellow politicians, highlighting a disconnect with societal issues.
Asylum Seekers and LGBTQ+ Claims
On ITV’s Peston programme, Braverman controversially claimed that many asylum seekers in the UK pretend to be gay to receive “special treatment,” igniting backlash from human rights advocates.
Grooming Gang Accusation
In an interview with Sky News, Braverman accused British-Pakistani men of being predominantly involved in grooming gangs, a claim that led to accusations of racial profiling and deepened existing societal divides.
Migrant “Invasion” Comment
Her description of the arrival of asylum seekers across the English Channel as an “invasion” drew severe criticism for its inflammatory nature, raising concerns about inciting hostility against vulnerable groups.
Rwanda Deportation Dream
As Home Secretary under Liz Truss, Braverman expressed a desire to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda, a stance that was both divisive and controversial on the international stage.
These series of controversies ultimately led to a loss of confidence within the government, prompting Prime Minister Sunak to remove Braverman from her position.
