Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sacked Braverman on Monday

Suella Braverman has been praised by Ben Habib, following her dismissal as Home Secretary on Monday.

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak sacked Braverman on Monday morning, following comments made in an unauthorised op-ed, where she said the Metropolitan Police are "playing favourites" with protests in the capital.

In a brief statement, Braverman said it was "the greatest privilege of her life" being the Home Secretary.

She added: "I will have more to say in due course."

Rishi Sunak assigned James Cleverly as Braverman's replacement, moving over from his role as Foreign Secretary.

Sunak's cabinet reshuffle also saw former Prime Minister Lord David Cameron return to frontline politics, becoming the new Foreign Secretary.

Other appointments to the cabinet include Steve Barclay as the new Environment Secretary, Victoria Atkins as Health Secretary, and Richard Holden becomes the new party chairman.

Jeremy Hunt remains as Chancellor alongside the Prime Minister.

Discussing Braverman's sacking on GB News, Deputy Leader of the Reform Party Ben Habib said it was a "politically charged mega day" for the Conservatives.

Habib reacted to the move and supported the former Home Secretary, stating: "Suella Braverman, in my view, was arguably the last genuinely conservative member of cabinet.

"She spoke for traditional Conservative values. She wanted to eliminate illegal migration. She wanted to bring migration down. She was obviously at her wits end because she's been making public pronouncements, almost breaking collective responsibility for now a 12 month period.

Habib continued: "She also wanted to call out the two tier policing system, which to, you know, the common man on the Clapham omnibus, it's quite clear that certain groups of people are treated much more leniently than other groups of people."

Discussing the appointment of Lord David Cameron to the cabinet, Habib criticised Sunak's decision: "David Cameron, for the democratic reasons which are obvious, should never have been appointed Foreign Secretary for the damage it does to the morale of the Conservative Party.

"He should never been appointed Foreign Secretary for his record in foreign policy. He should never have been appointed Foreign Secretary. And then the last thing is, this is a Prime Minister who voted Remain.

"This is a gentleman who voted Remain, campaigned for Remain and had to resign as Prime Minister because of his position on Remain."

Habib continued: "The Conservative Party has always been too far left in my opinion, but it's ejected traditional Conservative values unequivocally.

"Now it's turned its back on the red wall. It is targeting Liberal Democrat seats and it's going to do all the kind of things that are going to drive Esther [McVey] mad in the job that they've just given her."
