‘Pound shop Enoch Powell’ Suella Braverman has offended ‘just about everyone’
Telegraph says Suella Braverman has “managed to offend everyone” in Northern Ireland’s divided society, politicians from the region said after the Home Secretary appeared to compare the Orange Order to Hamas.
A number of Northern Irish politicians called on Rishi Sunak to sack Mrs Braverman after she said pro-Palestinian “hate marches” were “disturbingly reminiscent of Ulster”.
“She has managed to offend just about everyone – no mean feat in a divided society,“ said Colum Eastwood, the MP for Foyle and the leader of the nationalist SDLP, who called her a “pound shop Enoch Powell”.
“The only appropriate action now is her removal from office,” he said, accusing the Home Secretary of “ignorance of the complex history and traditions of marching and protest in Northern Ireland”.
