United Kingdom Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sacked Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, for her comments on the police forces being too lenient with the pro-Palestinian, anti-Israel demonstrators.
The government informs that Braverman left her job as part of Cabinet shuffle as Sunak shakes up his top government team.
Braverman stated, “it has been the greatest privilege of my life to serve as home secretary,” adding that she would “have more to say in due course.”
She was replaced by James Cleverly, who had been foreign secretary and was one of first top global officials to visit Israel after the October 7 massacre.
Braverman, who happens to be a divisive figure popular with the authoritarian wing of the governing Conservative, was criticised and accused for heightening tensions during weeks of contentious pro-Palestinian protests in Britain. It has created pressure on Sunak.
In an article, wrote by Braverman, for Times of London, she said police “play favourites when it comes to protestors” and claimed that they have acted in a much more lenient way towards pro-Palestinians and Black Lives Matter supporters than to right-wing protestors or soccer hooligans.
