Home Secretary Suella Braverman is simply reflecting public opinion when she criticised police of double standards on the planned pro-Palestinian march in London on Saturday, according to Nigel Farage.
He told GB News: “I am absolutely certain that the centre of gravity on this in this country is actually right behind the Home Secretary.
“Now there are rumours swirling tonight around the bars and pubs in Westminster that a rapid reshuffle is on the way and that maybe Suella Braverman is on the way out.

“I like very much what Suella Braverman has to say, my disappointment is she never actually delivers any of it.”
He continued: “She wrote this: during Covid, why was it that lockdown objectors were given no quarter by public order police, yet Black Lives Matter demonstrators were enabled to break rules and even greeted with officers taking the knee.
“Right-wing nationalist protesters who engage in aggression are rightly met with a stern response, yet pro-Palestinian mobs displaying almost identical behaviour are largely ignored, even when clearly breaking the law…
“I have to say, I do think that when it comes to dealing with pro-Palestinian, even pro-Hamas supporters, the police have treated it with kid gloves.”
He added: ”When the English Defence League wanted to march through east London a few years ago, the march simply gets banned. I've been saying it for the last two weeks, I don't believe the police are being even handed.
“The Daily Telegraph had a snap poll on this, asking the simple question: should Suella Braverman be sacked after accusing the police of playing favourites with protesters?
“The result is pretty clear. Yes, she should be sacked say 28%, no, she should not be sacked say 72%.”
