One day after being dismissed as Secretary of the Interior, Suella Braverman has launched a very hard attack against the ‘premier’ Rishi Sunak, accusing him of “treason”reminding him that he has not been chosen by the British and blaming him for the recent electoral fiascos of the Conservative Party: “Someone has to be honest: the plan is not working, we are running out of time and we urgently need a change of direction.”
Braverman has also criticized Sunak for his “characteristic style of government”, for his “lack of interest and consideration” and for his disdain for “promises” contracted with the British, such as reduction in the number of illegal English Channel crossings. The former Secretary of the Interior has regretted the lack of political support to sign Brexit with the departure of the European Court of Human Rights.
Suella Braverman’s extensive three-page “farewell” letter is interpreted as a call for rebellion from the right wing and a confirmation of his aspirations as leader of the Tories. Only one Conservative MP, Andrea Jenkyns, has dared to publicly announce the sending of a letter of censure against her leader to the 1922 Committee.

Deputies Miriam Cates and Danny Kruger, from the New Conservatives group, also openly criticized Sunak this Tuesday for “the change in direction of the Government” and “the calculated departure from the agenda with which we achieved the conservative majority in 2019.”
Sunak meanwhile held the first meeting of his new cabinet on Tuesday. “I want a strong and united team,” was the warning issued by the prime minister to the members of the new Government, with the stellar presence of David Cameron in the Foreign Affairs and last minute incorporation of Esther McVey as minister without portfolio and representative of the hard wing of the Conservative Party, to compensate for the dismissal of the controversial Suella Braverman.
