Home Secretary Suella Braverman Calls Out ‘Collective Guilt’ and Advocates for Reduced Immigration

Braverman emphasises the need for integration and upholds British values in a bold stance against political correctness and rewriting history


Home Secretary Suella Braverman has fiercely argued against the notion of collective guilt for white people over historical slavery, declaring that “white people do not exist in a special state of sin”.

In a passionate speech, Braverman denounced political correctness and those intent on rewriting history.

“The defining feature of this country’s relationship with slavery is not that we practised it but that we led the way in abolishing it,” asserted Braverman, herself the daughter of immigrants.

She condemned the Left’s preoccupation with decolonising the curriculum and demanding reparations, stating, “We should be proud of who we are.”

The Home Secretary also addressed immigration concerns, cautioning that the UK “cannot simply” accommodate individuals who don’t commit to learning English and understanding British social norms. She added that her ultimate aspiration is to cut annual net migration to less than 100,000, emphasising the importance of controlling both legal and illegal migration.

Responding to these remarks, Rishi Sunak’s official spokesman confirmed that Braverman’s view aligns with the Government’s approach, focusing on long-term investments in the UK domestic workforce rather than relying on overseas labour.

Braverman’s comments on slavery elicited reactions from commentators. Darren Grimes echoed her sentiments, while columnist Andrew Lilico commended her for addressing “blatantly racist” views. Tory MP Marco Longhi also agreed, suggesting that the Left lacks a clear vision.

The Home Secretary’s address, however, wasn’t devoid of interruptions. A man identifying himself as a part of Extinction Rebellion and a woman were both ejected from the hall in Westminster. Earlier, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg’s address was also interrupted by a protester warning about “fascism”.

In conclusion, Braverman’s speech underscores her commitment to upholding British values, challenging political correctness, and managing immigration effectively. Her bold stand marks a critical juncture in the ongoing cultural debate and policy discourse in the UK.
