RISHI Sunak has made a mistake by sacking Suella Braverman according to Sir Jacob Rees-Mogg.

He told GB News: “I think it's a mistake. Suella understands what the country thinks about migration, the concerns the country has, is serious about it, was determined to get it down.

“Sometimes she's spoken in a way that others are a bit squeamish about, but that's not really the point. The point is that as Home Secretary, she was committed to delivering something that the country thinks is important.”

In a discussion with Andrew Pierce and Bev Turner, he continued: “I think from the point of view of the Conservatives winning the next election, today is a mistake because Suella understood what the British voter thought and was trying to do something about it.

“It seems to me that the Prime Minister is not as well attuned to the voters’ concerns as Suella Braverman.”

He added: “Suella was a serious contender last year when Boris went, she did much better than people had expected.

“She is a formidable politician and importantly, she has her finger on what people think, she is not somebody who has been absorbed by the blob.”

On the return of David Cameron., Sir Jacob said: “David Cameron got the Brexit issue wrong in terms of the Conservative Party and indeed the country at large who voted to leave but he did give us the choice to have the vote.

“Without him we wouldn't have had that referendum. He is a highly intelligent, capable individual. But will this potentially push some people to Reform is a question for the pollsters.”
