Suella Braverman insists she has definitely learnt her lesson after breaching the Ministerial Code several times last week and then lying about it. Braverman said this was a "technical infringement" of the rules, but that infringement involved sending a fellow MP, Sir John Hayes, a sensitive document from her personal email account, rather than her official account - something which in itself is a serious breach of security.

Suella Braverman insists she has definitely learnt her lesson after breaching the Ministerial Code several times last week and then lying about it. Braverman said this was a "technical infringement" of the rules, but that infringement involved sending a fellow MP, Sir John Hayes, a sensitive document from her personal email account, rather than her official account - something which in itself is a serious breach of security. Then to make matters worse, Braverman thought it would be a brilliant idea to CC in John's wife who had no business whatsoever seeing this document. Only the galaxy-brained Braverman CC'd the wrong person. Instead of emailing John's wife, she emailed the aide of another Tory MP, Andrew Percy, who raised the alarm.

Well done, Suella! Impressive stuff. Bravo!

Braverman was confronted about her multiple security breaches and she denied responsibility until she was shown the undeniable evidence. It was at this point, Braverman wrote a self-righteous resignation letter, boasting that she'd taken full responsibility when she'd actually tried to worm her way out.

So she'd broken the Ministerial Code, probably the Official Secrets Act too, and presumably her own party's rules, and did it so incompetently, she incriminated herself, then she showed herself to be a liar, but tried to present herself as the grownup who could accept responsibility for her mistakes.

I have one question: how the hell did this complete and utter clown end up in one of the highest offices in the land? Actually don't answer that, I already know the answer. It's because you dipshits kept voting Tory.

Braverman is part of the crowd who yelp on about immigrants not respecting our laws and customs and yet, there she was doing exactly that. And what was her punishment?

Braverman built the nation's hopes up by resigning, enjoyed a week's holiday from work and then returned to her position as though nothing had happened. That's like a kid getting caught misbehaving, sending themselves to their room to play on their Xbox for an hour and then running off to the shop to buy themselves some sweets.

The Ministerial Code was introduced in 1997 to bring some degree of standards to the circus known as parliament and now the Tories are desperate to scrap it because they're finding it impossible to maintain those basic standards! Not only was Boris Johnson breaching the Ministerial Code every week, but Braverman's main defence is that her Tory colleagues are always doing the same. Thank you for clarifying how much you lot struggle with rules, Sue Ellen.

People are saying this shitshow demonstrates new Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, has poor judgement, like a parent thinking their little angel has learnt their lesson while they're busy plotting to burn the house down. But actually, it's more like the kid has returned with their wayward friends, tied the parent up and said we're in charge now.

The kid's gang is known as the ERG and they could tear Rishi Sunak apart at any given moment. They might have lost their leader in Liz Truss, but they do not want to relinquish their power and influence so easily. One thing will appease these far-right obsessives more than anything else, and that's putting their most vile and xenophobic member in charge of immigration. They want to be as cruel as possible and if they can't inflict that cruelty on refugees, they will turn against their own party. Lovely people.

I don't intend to sound remotely sympathetic, but Rishi Sunak is not exactly in a strong position here. He can only remain in power while he appeases the very worst elements of his party and every time he does, his hopes of winning a general election will further fall. It's quite the problem.

I'm not suggesting the public has found its moral conscience, just that they're only willing to overlook Tory cruelty for as long as their economic interests are being protected. The Tories' favourite game is projecting its failures onto refugees and other vulnerable groups, but this strategy no longer works because everybody with the intelligence level of a sea sponge (including about 1/2 of Tory voters) understands Tory policy caused this mess.

Sunak is now facing questions over whether officials warned against Braverman's reappointment, something party chair Nadhim Zahawi has refused to deny. Instead, Zahawi offered the piss-weak excuse that people deserve to be given a second chance.

Unsurprisingly, there are calls for a full investigation which could well reveal that not only did Sunak ignore officials, but that Braverman was not the only MP breaching the Ministerial Code. Let's also consider that Braverman was probed earlier this year over a national security breach involving a British spy and is suspected of being the source of multiple leaks - so much so her nickname among Whitehall officials is "Leaky Sue".

Tory MP Mark Pritchard said: "MI5 need to have confidence in the Home Secretary - whoever that might be.

"It’s a vital relationship of trust, key to the UK's security and democratic oversight of MI5. Any breakdown in that relationship is bad for the security service and the government. It needs to be sorted ASAP."

It could be time to get your popcorn out, folks!

The media sense blood and they're not going to let this one lie because they've had enough of the Tory Party embarrassing the establishment. Some of them were willing to give the "moderate" with a friendly smile a chance, but his cabinet picks were too damaging to their brand, yet Sunak cannot replace them with more palatable choices. This means the media will make sure his party is done for.
