TAKING control of our borders and making our streets safe is vital for any Government.
Suella Braverman makes crystal clear that she will be remorseless in her war on criminality.
She didn’t shirk controversial decisions when she was Attorney General. Now she must take on the liberal establishment that favours the rights of thugs over ordinary citizens.
It is crucial she uses this week’s Tory Party Conference to make the law and order agenda her own.
The record numbers of illegal migrants reaching these shores is shameful.
As a priority she must close gaping loopholes in the Modern Slavery Act which, far from preventing exploitation, is too often milked by those seeking to come here illegally.
She must take to task lawyers who cynically stop these foreign criminals from being booted out, often at the last moment and at vast cost to the taxpayer.
And she must leave no stone unturned in trying to liberate us from the decisions of unelected European human rights judges who thwart British laws.
We applaud Ms Braverman’s warning to the police to halt woke virtue signalling for “common sense” policing.
