Home Secretary dreams of deporting migrants to Rwanda
Home secretary Suella Braverman has doubled down on her calls for the UK to leave the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) so that deportation flights to Rwanda can take place.
She told a Spectator event at the Tory conference in Birmingham: “I was pretty blunt about this issue in my leadership campaign.
“My position personally is that ultimately we do need to leave the European Convention on Human Rights.
“That is not government policy, I should say, government policy is to do everything we can within the convention, within the boundaries of the convention.
“But if that doesn’t work, then we will have to consider all options.”
Earlier on Tuesday, Braverman told a conference fringe event she would “love to be here claiming victory, I would love to be having a front page of the Telegraph with a plane taking off to Rwanda, that’s my dream, that’s my obsession”.
