Rishi Sunak has ‘full confidence’ in Suella Braverman, Number 10 says

Politics

The prime minister has “full confidence” in his home secretary, Suella Braverman, despite her controversial article about pro-Palestinian marches.

The prime minister’s spokesperson said it was looking into details surrounding the article by Ms Braverman, but insisted Rishi Sunak had “full confidence” in her.

In her article, Ms Braverman accused the police of “playing favourites” with how it handles controversial protests by showing a more lenient attitude to left-wing protesters than their right-wing counterparts.

She ramped up her attacks on those attending pro-Palestinian demonstrations, likening them to those in Northern Ireland – comments that were branded “wholly offensive” and “ignorant” by one former Tory cabinet minister.

Labour’s shadow business secretary Jonathan Reynolds branded Ms Braverman “out of control” and told Sky News Mr Sunak should “of course” sack her if he had not signed off on the article.
