Lies, Falsehoods and Misrepresentations from Boris Johnson to Rishi Sunak

‎”The invasion on our southern coast”

Suella Braverman, Home Secretary, House of Commons

Facts

Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, speaking in the House of Commons, referred to asylum seekers entering the UK as an “invasion”.

Verdict

Suella was doubtless using “invasion” as a figure of speech. But the migrants crossing in small boats were not armed and attempting to take over Britain. This was a misleading, not to mention inflammatory, statement from Braverman. 

We emailed Suella Braverman’s office and the Home Office offering them the chance to respond. The email was received by both, but no reply.
