On a walkabout in an Essex town centre, Rishi Sunak and Suella Braverman received jeers and warnings to “go away.”
A member of the public yelled at the Prime Minister and Home Secretary as they were walking down Chelmsford’s high street with three neighbourhood police officers.
One of the women said, “Let migrants into our country” and “Refugees should be allowed in Britain,” as they passed by.
The Home Secretary did not respond when the officer strolling next to Ms. Braverman turned his head in the direction of the shouting woman.
The woman yelled at Mr. Sunak and Ms. Braverman and added: : “Go away. We don’t want you here.”
Ms. Braverman carried on speaking with the police as the woman kept shouting.
After a little more than five minutes of walking, the Prime Minister was taken to the Chelmsford Boxing Club where he addressed the gathering and answered questions on his strategy for dealing with anti-social behaviour.
It occurs as the committee stage of Mr. Sunak and Ms. Braverman’s bill to combat small boats’ illegal immigration returns to the Commons for two days of discussion.
The Bill has been the subject of debate, with critics stating that the proposed legislation would put the UK in violation of its duties under international law.
The liberal and right wings of the Tory Party both have issues with Downing Street.
