Tory Civil War Escalates as Suella Braverman Accuses Rishi Sunak of Lack of Contingency for Rwanda Migrant Policy

Tory Civil War Escalates:

The ongoing internal conflict within the Conservative Party intensified as former Minister Jacob Rees-Mogg rallied behind dismissed Home Secretary Suella Braverman.

Braverman had accused Chancellor Rishi Sunak of lacking a backup plan if the Supreme Court rejects the Rwanda migrant policy.

Braverman’s Resignation Letter

In a strongly worded resignation letter, Braverman criticized Sunak’s ‘magical thinking’ and failure to devise an alternative plan in case the Supreme Court deems the Rwanda scheme unlawful.

She expressed concern that even in victory, the policy could face prolonged legal challenges, compromising its effectiveness.

Rees-Mogg’s Support on GB News

Jacob Rees-Mogg voiced support for Suella Braverman on his GB News show, describing her letter as ‘excoriating’ and highlighting the discontent on the Tory backbenches.

He echoed Braverman’s sentiments, emphasizing the need for a credible backup plan and questioning the government’s commitment to addressing migration issues.

Chancellor’s Response and Defining Day

Chancellor Rishi Sunak, responding to the calls for a backup plan, asserted that the upcoming Autumn Statement would focus on economic growth.

The Chancellor faces a defining day as the Supreme Court prepares to rule on the legality of the Rwanda migrant policy, a pivotal element of the government’s strategy.

Economists’ Warning and Conservative Faction Dissent

Economists, assembled by Liz Truss, warned of potential decades of stagnant growth and rising taxes.

Meanwhile, the New Conservatives, a faction within the Tory party, insisted on leaving the European human rights treaty regardless of the Supreme Court ruling on the Rwanda asylum deal, showcasing internal dissent.

Conclusion

The internal strife within the Conservative Party continues to unfold, with Braverman’s resignation and Rees-Mogg’s support amplifying the discord.

The Supreme Court’s impending ruling on the Rwanda migrant policy adds uncertainty to the government’s agenda.

The factional differences on key issues, such as human rights, underscore the challenges faced by the ruling party.
