The allegations in a guest article in The Times were published without consulting the Prime Minister’s Office, a spokesman for Sunak confirmed last week. Therefore, this step was expected.

Did Braverman fire himself on purpose?

Braverman is considered a promising candidate for party leadership if, as expected, the Conservatives lose next year’s general election. The ruling Conservative Party lags far behind the opposition Labor Party in opinion polls. There was speculation that, through her criticism of the police and other right-wing populist statements, she wanted to position herself as a candidate for the party’s right wing and perhaps deliberately get her expelled.

According to estimates, Braverman’s dismissal will likely be accompanied by a major cabinet reshuffle. It is already clear that Secretary of State James Cleverly will take over for Braverman.
