Tory civil war erupts as Jacob Rees-Mogg backs sacked Suella Braverman | Politics | News

Jacob Rees-Mogg has waded into the Tory civil war that has erupted after Rishi Sunak sacked Home Secretary Suella Braverman.

Braverman subsequently accused the Prime Minister of having “no plan B”, should the Supreme Court block plans to deport migrants to Rwanda. In a resignation letter, Braverman blasted the “unelected” PM and accused him of a “betrayal” over broken pledges on migration, gender policy, and Brexit.

The 43-year-old suggested Sunak could fail to “stop the boats” arriving at the English Channel even if the Rwanda policy is given the go-ahead, reports MailOnline. Rees-Mogg threw his support behind Braverman on his GB News show.

He said: “Suella Braverman’s letter is excoriating, I’ve never seen anything like, and it’s part of the sulphurous mood on the Tory backbenches.

“Suella Braverman is right – the Prime Minister has repeatedly and manifestly not delivered on his promises. Tomorrow is a defining day for the question of the Rwanda policy… even if the Government wins tomorrow, owing to the Prime Minister’s concessions, Rwanda deportations will be subject to months of appeals and legal challenges.

Suella was willing to override the ECHR to get Rwanda done. She not only knew the public didn’t want mass migration, but also that it has social and economic consequences. Sadly, this government no longer seems serious about solving illegal or even legal migration. If the government isn’t careful this will be reflected in the next election.”

In her three-page letter to the PM, which was allegedly penned days before she was finally sacked, Braverman told Sunak: “Someone needs to be honest.”

She continued: “Your plan is not working, we have endured record election defeats, your resets have failed and we are running out of time. You need to change course urgently.”

The politician claimed the policy could get knocked back by the European Court of Human Rights. James Cleverly, who has taken over at the Home Office, has reportedly been considering options should the policy work or fail.

Braverman meanwhile suggested ministers could have “wasted a year” on the policy. She claimed the Illegal Migration Act is “far from secure” against legal challenges.

She also says Sunak has “no appetite for doing what is necessary” when it comes to stopping boats. Her scathing attack on the PM comes after she was sacked following a row over a comment about pro-Palestinian marches in The Times.

Braverman’s supporters will reportedly step up their attacks in the coming days, say Tory Right sources. She is thought to be planning a leadership bid should Sunak quit.

The Supreme Court will make a decision on the Illegal Migration Act on Wednesday. The plan to send migrants to Rwanda was announced in 2022, but the proposal has been held up in the court since.
