Former Home Secretary Suella Braverman was grilled in what some are calling a particularly heated BBC interview on Radio 4’s Today programme this morning.

Suella Braverman was fired from her post as Home Secretary last month following a series of controversies including calling illegal migrant boat crossings an “invasion” and calling to question the Metropolitan Police’s handling of Palestine related demonstrations.

Despite this Braverman has remained a loud voice in parliament due to her criticism of Rishi Sunak and calls for stronger measures against illegal migration.

Nick Robinson, presenter of this morning’s Today programme asked Ms Braverman about her thoughts on the new Rwanda asylum bill which hopes to define Rwanda as a safe country – paving the way for a portion of illegal migrants in the UK to be sent to Rwanda.

She said: “This is a very litigious field and there are lots of legal frameworks that apply. The sorry truth is that it will not work – that’s my opinion having had read the bill in the past few hours.”

The MP for Fareham also mentioned the secret alternative plan that she alleges Rishi Sunak agreed to behind closed doors then never followed through on: “I want the prime minister to succeed in stopping the boats, he said he would do whatever it takes.

“I’m telling him there is a way to succeed in stopping the boats, in fulfilling that promise.”

Despite Nick Robinson pressing Suella Braverman on her statements and goals at multiple points in the interview, the following question has garnered particular attention on the social media platform X: “You’ve condemned the leader of your party as uncertain and lacking in leadership.

“You said he never had any intention of keeping his promises, you’ve accused him of betrayal and wishful thinking. You’ve attacked lawyers, judges, civil servants, the head of the Metropolitan police, people who are worried about deaths in Gaza. You’ve attacked the homeless, you’ve attacked migrants as being a part of an invasion.

“Isn’t it truth that you’re a headline grabber who does it by spreading poison even within your own party.”

Suella Braverman responded with the following: “When I served as Home Secretary I sought to be honest.

“Honest to the British people, honest for the British people. Sometimes honest is uncomfortable but I’m not going to shy away from telling people how it is and from plain speaking and if that upsets polite society then I’m sorry about that but the point is we need to be honest.”
