Under-fire Suella Braverman has scratched Rishi Sunak’s back so he scratched hers – the new Prime Minister is just as guilty of unforgivably awful judgement
Imagine for one moment the howls of Conservatives demanding resignations had a Labour Prime Minister and Home Secretary jeopardised national security.
And you know what? They’d have been right to call for heads where recklessness is clear.
Liz Truss is gone as PM yet her successor Rishi Sunak is guilty of unforgivably awful judgement in returning sacked Suella Braverman to the Home Office.

Braverman scratched Sunak’s back so he scratched hers. They are as bad as each other.
