The Times: Suella Braverman angers No 10 with attack on ECHR

Discipline in the Conservative Party disintegrated further after Downing Street slapped down Suella Braverman for breaking with government policy as she called for the UK to leave the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR).

The home secretary said it was her personal view and acknowledged government policy was to work within the boundaries of the convention, which is interpreted by the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.

However, her intervention is another sign of the indiscipline within Liz Truss’s administration at the Tory party conference in Birmingham.
