London: Thanasis Gavos

A rare direct and sharp attack against him British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak launches yesterday’s Home Secretary Suella Braverman in the letter that traditionally accompanies the departure of ministers in the United Kingdom.

Ms Braverman was fired after her inflammatory comments about the protests Palestine in London and his criticism of the Metropolitan Police for being biased in favor of these protesters.

The spokeswoman for the far-right Tories says, among other things, that she backed Mr Sunak for the premiership despite the fact that he had earlier been rejected by party members over Liz Truss and therefore had no “personal mandate” to govern .

He states that he has joined the government as Minister of the Interior on the basis of an agreement with the prime minister on concrete measures to reduce immigration, even with Britain’s exit from international conventions, the timely enforcement of legislative changes after Brexit and the issuing of instructions to schools in favor of a clear separation of the sexes.

“Either the distinct style of governance you have means you are incapable of doing so. Or I must surely conclude now that you never had any intention of keeping your promises,” writes Ms. Braverman.

He also speaks of “betrayal” not only of the agreement between them, but also of the promise to the citizens.

He accuses him of ignoring these commitments. “You have demonstrably and repeatedly failed to implement each of these key policies.”

He goes on to say that the prime minister has not risen to the challenge posed by anti-Semitism in the country. “I am sorry to say that your response is precarious, weak and lacking in the qualities of leadership that this country needs,” adds the former minister.

The scathing letter concludes: “Someone needs to be honest: your plan is not working, we have suffered record election defeats, your reboots have failed and we are running out of time. You must change course urgently.”
