Suella Braverman’s gay claims to get asylum in UK, during an interview last night, has been slammed as ‘full of appalling & misleading statements.’
In a speech on Tuesday, Ms Braverman claimed multiculturalism had failed and said the international asylum system needed to be changed.
Braverman also has said that: “simply being gay, or a woman, and fearful of discrimination in your country of origin”.
Speaking to ITV News yesterday, Ms Braverman said that “some people do game the system”.
She was slammed by Sir Elton John and the Labour MPs Ben Bradshaw and Sir Chris Bryant, who are both gay.
Braverman added: “They come to the UK, they purport to be homosexual in the effort to game our system, in the effort to get special treatment.
“That’s not fair, and it’s not right.
“I’m afraid we do see many instances where people purport to be gay when they’re not actually gay. But in order to get special treatment, it’s not the way our asylum system should work.”
Elton John statement
Elton John Aids Foundation, the singer and his husband David Furnish launched said in a statement : “We are very concerned about the UK home secretary’s comments stating how discrimination for being gay or a woman should not be reason enough to qualify for protection under international refugee laws.
“Nearly a third of all nations class LGBTQ+ people as criminals, and homosexuality is still punishable by death in 11 countries.
“Dismissing the very real danger LGBTQ+ communities face risks further legitimising hate and violence against them.
“Leaders need to provide more compassion, support and acceptance for those seeking a safer future.”
Suella Braverman’s gay claims
In a new film Peter Stefanovic has called out her claims and discusses the statistics to back up his argument against the Home Secretary.
Peter shared the video and wrote: “Tonight’s interview with Home Secretary Suella Braverman was absolutely shocking – full of appalling & misleading statements. I refuse to believe she speaks for the majority of people in this country.”
