Political chaos in the UK is growing: Home Secretary Soyla Braverman resigns

Soella Braverman, the 42-year-old British Home Secretary, has stepped down from the government of embattled Prime Minister Liz Truss. She says she did it because she made a mistake professionally, but she also says she worries about government policy. Last week, the prime minister sacked Kwasi Kwarting, the finance minister. The political chaos in the UK is getting worse.

“It is with great regret that I have chosen to tender my resignation,” Braverman wrote in her resignation letter. The reason for this is that she used her private email address to send a document to a colleague from Parliament. She should have done so using her government email address. “This is a technical breach of the rules.”

She maintains that this mistake was the reason for her dismissal, although she also writes that she is concerned about the direction her country is heading. “Not only have we made important promises to the people, but I also have serious concerns about the government’s willingness to live up to its immigration obligations.” Earlier, Braverman had also criticized Prime Minister Truss’ leaps and bounds on the budget.

Braverman met with British Prime Minister Liz Truss on Wednesday afternoon to announce her resignation. Truss even cleared her agenda for it. She appointed Grant Shapps as the new Secretary of the Interior later in the day. A surprising choice because Boris Johnson’s former transport secretary showed himself to be a supporter of Rishi Sunak, Truss’s rival, during the election campaign.

New hit

The departure of Braverman, one of the most important figures in her government, is another blow to Liz Truss (47), who has been prime minister for only six weeks. It has been wild since its 180-degree turn in tax policy. It was seen as inevitable after unfunded tax cuts created serious turmoil in the financial markets. She fired her finance minister, Kwasi Quarting, and replaced him with Jeremy Hunt. Its popularity is well below freezing point.
