Police bolster ranks for Armistice Day as Suella Braverman faces calls to quit over pro-Palestine protest remarks – latest news
The home secretary referred to the protests as 'mobs'.
Her claim that there is a perception some senior officers ‘play favourites’ was not signed off by No 10, the prime minister’s spokesperson made clear on Thursday.
Downing Street was investigating how the article containing such an inflammatory comparison between ‘pro-Palestinian mobs’ and marches in Northern Ireland was still sent to the newspaper for publication.
There was also sharp criticism from Tory MPs, with some lambasting Braverman’s intervention as ‘unhinged’.
One unnamed cabinet minister even went as far as to conclude that, ‘she is toast’.
Meanwhile, Israel has agreed to pause operations in northern Gaza for four hours a day from Thursday, the White House said.
In theory, this would allow civilians to flee along two humanitarian corridors, but Israel has consistently not kept its word and bombed areas where safety had been promised.
