The Conservative MP for Fareham and Waterlooville said British people need to 'stop being told they're racist'

Suella Braverman has claimed that British people are being "gaslighted" into believing they are racist, as she hit out at the concept of "white privilege".

The former Home Secretary sat down with GB News as she hit out at the "nonsense" of white privilege and "systemic anti-white discrimination" in the UK.

Speaking to Steven Edginton, Braverman declared that we should "stop branding all English people as racist" .

The former Home Secretary asserted: "We've got to stop telling the British people that they are racist. We've got to stop trying to guilt white people, and branding all English people as racist.

When asked about the rise in DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) policies in the work place and discrimination towards white employees, Braverman said that the "concept of white privilege is a nonsense".

She explained: "Say that to the white working class boys in Britain who are the most underachieving when it comes to literacy and numeracy and school outcomes.

"Say that to young girls in some northern towns who were raped and abused by gangs of largely Pakistani Muslim men. I think we need to stop gaslighting the British people."

Noting her work as Home Secretary and the backlash she received as a result of her views on issues such as immigration, Braverman said that some of what she says is "uncomfortable" for people to hear, they are "home truths" about the state of Britain today.

Braverman told GB News: "What I've sought to do over recent years and actually, even before I was a minister, is to tell the truth. And some of these truths are really uncomfortable.


"They don't earn me any favours and they don't make my life very easy. And in my party, we have a tendency to shoot the messenger."

Doubling down on her beliefs and determination not to be put off by her critics, Braverman stressed: "I'm going to keep saying these things, because people need to hear them.

"When I spoke out about grooming gangs, I was vilified. But I'll do it again, because I'll never forget meeting those young women in Rotherham and Rochdale, and those women who had been raped, abused, had their lives destroyed, and they were telling me about their experiences and how the authorities turned a blind eye.

"How the police, social workers, teachers, people who should have known better simply chose to ignore what was happening because of political correctness."

Noting her victory in the General Election, where she held her seat in Fareham and Waterlooville, Braverman told Steven she will continue to "speak out on these issues", even if she is "still vilified" by those who disagree with her.

Braverman said: "I'm going to keep speaking out on these issues, even if others will vilify me. And they will smear me, but someone's got to do it.

"And it's the least I can do for the British people and those who have voted me in."
