Suella Braverman’s letter does not explicitly deny her claims that Rishi Sunak broke promises he made in order to gain her support for the Tory leadership last fall. A spokesperson for No 10 stated:
Yesterday, the prime minister expressed pride in assembling a determined and cohesive team with a clear goal of serving the British people.
The prime minister prioritizes actions over words and takes pride in the government’s implementation of strict laws to address illegal migration in the country. As a result, the number of boat crossings has decreased by one-third this year. Regardless of the supreme court’s ruling tomorrow, he plans to continue this effort.
The prime minister expresses gratitude to the former secretary of the interior for her dedication.
At 5pm, you not only broke our agreement, but also reneged on your promise to the nation to take any necessary measures to prevent boats from arriving.
Throughout the legal process, I consistently advised you and your team to not assume victory. I urged you multiple times to implement legislative actions that would protect us in case of a loss. However, these arguments were ignored and you chose to rely on wishful thinking as a way to avoid difficult decisions. As a result, valuable time has been wasted and the country is now faced with an insurmountable predicament.
In the event that we do not succeed in the highest court, a possibility that I have consistently emphasized we must be ready for, a year and an Act of Parliament will have been squandered, only to end up back at square one. What’s even worse, your unrealistic optimism – thinking that you can simply will your way through this without causing any uproar – has resulted in a failure to prepare any viable alternative plan. I have communicated with you on multiple occasions, outlining what an effective Plan B would entail, and making it clear that without implementing these suggestions, there is no chance of flights before the next election. Unfortunately, I did not receive a response from you.
I can only speculate that this is due to your lack of willingness to take the necessary actions, thus indicating a lack of true commitment to fulfilling your promise to the citizens of Britain.
If we are successful in the supreme court due to the compromises made in the Illegal Migration Act, it will be difficult for the government to fulfill our partnership with Rwanda as expected by the public. The Act is not completely secure from legal challenges. The process of removing individuals will not be as swift as initially proposed. Claimants will have months to go through the process of challenging and appealing. Your insistence on rule 39 indications being binding in international law, despite differing views from top lawyers as stated by the House of Lords, puts us at risk of being hindered once again by the Strasbourg court.
At 5pm, Rishi Sunak reviewed the document mentioned in Braverman’s letter of resignation and accepted it, also taking a duplicate copy. At 2:11pm, Kruger stated:
Cameron was the head of the campaign to remain, and now he is responsible for our relationship with Europe.
As long as he continues to follow the direction of the prime minister and respects the authority we have as a government, I am not worried about his appointment.
In my opinion, the message it conveys to our voters is quite unclear. Additionally, the current structure of the government does not align with our desired vision.
Kruger expressed his belief that the reshuffle was an indication of the government reverting to a “politics of decline”. When asked to evaluate the reshuffle, he stated:
I rate it a 5 out of 10 – there were some good and great people, but I am worried that we are returning to a time of declining politics. That is our main concern.
Where can we find the drive and motivation for change that 2019 embodied? I am concerned that we are now heading in the wrong direction, despite the amazing individuals involved and our support for them.
The Autumn Statement is expected to include a reduction in business taxes. According to the Financial Times, Hunt is expected to extend the “full expensing” policy beyond 2026. This policy allows businesses to deduct the entire cost of investments in IT equipment, plants, or machinery from their profits.
Rachel Reeves, the shadow chancellor, used her speech to describe the king’s speech as a “lost opportunity”. She explained:
There are currently no laws in place to modernize the outdated planning procedures and speed up the decision-making process for vital national infrastructure projects. As a result, these planning processes are hindering progress and growth in our offshore wind industry, life sciences sector, and 5G technology.
There are currently no changes being made to pension policies that would promote the retention of British companies in the country. Instead, these companies are being compelled to seek funding abroad, leading to the UK’s economic growth remaining stagnant.
There is no significant strategy in place to lower energy bills. Instead, the energy price cap has risen by 50% during this parliamentary term.
In a statement released alongside the announcement, Cameron stated:
We will persist in utilizing all available methods to interrupt the despicable actions of this group of terrorists, collaborating with the United States and our other allies to hinder their operations and isolate them from the international community.
The people of Palestine are also suffering due to the actions of Hamas. We express our support for them and will keep advocating for temporary breaks in fighting to facilitate the delivery of much-needed aid to Gaza.
the exchanges show participants expressing alarm at the reshuffle decisions, and calling for a leadership contest. 2.11pm), he thought there were “nowhere near” enough of them to reach the threshold that would lead to such a vote happening.Suella Braverman, but are more likely than not to think that bringing back David Cameron was the wrong decision, according to new polling from Ipsos. This is from Cameron Garrett, who works for the polling company.
The complete results can be found here. Keiran Pedley, the director of politics at Ipsos, provided a statement regarding the findings.
Opinions seem to be split on the choice of David Cameron as foreign secretary, with those who voted Conservative in 2019 showing more support. However, the general public holds negative views on his tenure, particularly in regards to UK-EU relations, public services, and immigration policies under his government.
Given the circumstances, it is not unexpected that although some potential voters believe he will enhance the effectiveness of the current administration (including 40% of 2019 Liberal Democrat voters), very few think his selection will greatly benefit the Conservative party’s chances in the upcoming general election.
