    The worlds shittiest “smeagle cosplaying hobgoblin” is out for sharing classified documents, So we now have a Home Secretary that previously had multiple aliases and shilled get rich quick schemes?, seems appropriate for this shower of ****s masquerading as a functioning government

    Apparently, it’s over an “honest mistake” rather than policy disagreement. If this is the real reason, she must have done something pretty bloody bad!

    Such a shame. Wonder if they can find a replacement with a tiny shred of humanity this time

    As an ex-minister she doesn’t deserve any exclamation marks!!

    She has put her hand up to sending a confidential document from her personal email – but that strongly suggests that she has been work on confidential Home Office policy outside of the secure Home Office IT eco-system. This is massive no-no for anyone working on policy in civil service or Parliament both for security reasons and because it takes important discussions/documents on policy development and implementation out of the public record. These may well remain confidential for forty years but still need to be on the record for review and accountability.

    Basically she’s either very stupid or wanting to hide something – neither is a good look

    Actually I’ve just read the full statement. She was sacked for the infringement, but looks like she was not happy about being told to wind in her policy and was probably trying to get support to undermine Truss to force her own policy through.

    They Tories are broken – they have forgotten they are supposed to be run a country and its just become Tory Battle Royale

    Maybe it was suicide by email… Oops I’ve sent an official doc on my personal email, deary me I’d better confess and go..

    She didn’t say good things about the gov in her resignation letter

    A calculated act so she could write that resignation letter in that way, our Home Secretary it turns out is a suicide bomber

    Avoid information requests from a court or under the Freedom Of Information Act?

    Braverman might be a lawyer but legal stuff is complicated. It was probably just an honest mistake.

    The letter extracts just read out on the radio sounds like a pitch for pm to me.

    Is anybody else finding the reason for her resignation a little peculiar? If nothing else, it all happened a bit quick, no?

    From her letter:

    “Earlier today, I sent an official document from my personal email to a trusted parliamentary colleague as part of policy engagement, and with the aim of garnering support for government policy on migration.

    “This constitutes a technical infringement of the rules. As you know, the document was a draft Written Ministerial Statement about migration, due for publication imminently. Much of it had already been briefed to MPs. Nevertheless it is right for me to go.

    “As soon as I realised my mistake, I rapidly reported this on official channels, and informed the Cabinet Secretary. As Home Secretary I hold myself to the highest standards and my resignation is the right thing to do.

    It’s nice to have some consensus on a politics thread for a change.

    Shortest-serving UK home secretaries (May 1945 onwards)
    1. Suella Braverman, 43 days
    2. Donald Somervell, 62 days (post-WW2 caretaker)
    3. Alan Johnson, 340 days
    4. David Waddington, 398 days
    5. Kenneth Clarke, 412 days

    Full benefit package on exit. Nice.

    Either way, that’s two of the biggest loonies out the way, I am definitely breathing sigh of relief right now. Three more to go: Coffey, Rees-Mogg and Truss herself

    Yes.
    Either she decided to go for some reason and used that as an excuse to appear honourable and get a dig in at Truss and co for not resigning after their “honest mistakes” or it was used as an opportunity to force her out.

    Rees-Mogg

    I’m hoping for something along the lines of, when it’s revealed to him that it is no longer the Victorian Era, he instantly ages 150 years and turns to dust. Vampire in sunlight kind of thing.

    Yes, yes she is. Not just about becoming PM.

    Have they found something to try and kill off her leadership bid? Dishonourably booted for a mistake? Made it hard for anyone to back her in the short term?

    Note that her replacement (Professor Green or whatever he’s calling himself this week) is on the record as saying that picking the next leader should be a job for MPs only, not go to the members again. Done in a week. That also stops her having any chance of getting her hands on that job, if it goes that way.

    IMO more likely sacked. Braverman was known to be highly critical of Liz Truss’s Jeremy Hunt inspired U-turns.

    When you have 2 Prime Ministers you have got to expect chaos in government.

    She wrote she had “sent an official document from my personal email to a trusted parliamentary colleague” earlier today and insisted it was “right for me to go”.

    But in a damning two paragraphs, Ms Braverman continued: “The business of government relies upon people accepting responsibility for their mistakes. Pretending we haven’t made mistakes, carrying on as if can’t see that we have made them, and hoping that things will magically come right is not serious politics.

    “Not only have we broken key pledges that were promised to our voters, but I have had serious concerns about this Government’s commitment to honouring manifesto commitments, such as reducing overall migration numbers and stopping illegal migration, particularly the dangerous small boats crossings.”

    got to giver her two thumbs up for that piece of penmanship.
