Responding to comments made by the Home Secretary about a ‘hurricane of migrants’ Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Jane Dodds MS said:
“The Home Secretary doesn’t have a long list of critics because she tells the ‘blunt, unvarnished truth’.
“The Home Secretary has a long list of critics because time after time after time she’s willing to risk the lives and the safety of some of the most vulnerable people in the world in the hope of extending her political career.
“Suella Braverman and the Conservatives’ hate-driven untruths is an attempt to drive a wedge in British society, turning people against each other, demonising people who come to Britain in search of safety and a place to call home where they can rebuild their lives.
“Every time Suella Braverman intervenes, she causes untold harm to our country’s standing on the world stage, and to the people who have come to Britain and contributed and enriched our country.
“The sad truth is that the Home Secretary is more interested in stoking fears and riling Conservative members rather than real solutions to creating a fair system. She is misleading voters, and failing Britain.
“Unfortunately it appears that principled people like Andrew Boff are in short supply in the Conservative party.”
