LONDON: Former British Home Secretary Suella Braverman has strongly criticized Prime Minister Rishi Sunak a day after he fired Suella Braverman, calling his approach “weak, uncertain,” and a betrayal of his pledges.
In a resignation letter ex-Minister published on Tuesday, she said Sunak had “manifestly and repeatedly failed to deliver” on major promises and accused that Sunak “never had any intention” of keeping his pledges.
The UK’s Prime Minister sacked her on Monday after she made a series of statements about police and pro-Palestinian protests.
UK Politics: Suella Braverman Terms Sunak as Weak Leader
“I express regret to say that your reply has been uncertain, feeble and also lacking in the qualities of a leader that the country needs,” she stated.
She had stoked controversy throughout her term, taking a hardline position on immigration in particular and regularly walking into so-called culture wars problems which are understood as dividing the electorate.
Her position became increasingly indefensible after she last week wrote a newspaper article, without Sunak’s approval. It was blamed for fueling tensions ahead of a weekend of protests over war on Gaza.
