Reform UK leader Richard Tice has called on Rishi Sunak to fire “shock and awe” into the heart of the United Nations (UN) with an ultimatum aimed at forcing their hand when it comes to Refugee Convention reform.
Braverman said the current international framework governing refugee status, including the UN according, was “contributing” to a system that was incentivising millions of asylum seekers to “try their luck”.
She called for the “definition of who qualifies for protection” under refugee laws to be “tightened”.

Speaking on GB News, Richard Tice said the Home Secretary did not go far enough, and warned the country is “on the road to ruin”, adding that he believes multiculturalism has “failed”.
“We are one fantastic British culture, we should be saying that to those who come to live here”, he said.
“Embrace it, use it, enjoy it, rather than say ‘I’m a separate culture, I’m on a separate track. That is the road to ruin.
“My view is, Sunak should back Braverman up, and say we need six months to amend this convention, otherwise, we’re out.
“I think that is the shock and awe that is needed to wake up a very complacent elite.”
Braverman concurred with Tice’s suggestion that multiculturalism has “failed” during her speech while making other controversial remarks such as offering asylum to a person because they are discriminated in their home country for being gay or a woman was not sustainable.
Braverman warned that 'seeking asylum and seeking better economic prospects are not the same thing'
