Aberconwy MP backs 40/1 candidate Suella Braverman for Prime Minister

Aberconwy’s Robin Millar has become one of the first Conservative MPs to publicly back a leadership contender.

Millar said that he was supporting one of the least likely candidates, Suella Braverman, who enters the contest with odds of 40/1.

Suella Braverman, the Attorney General, was the first candidate to publicly declare that she was standing, doing so even before Boris Johnson had announced that he was intending to resign.

She launched an unlikely leadership bid on Robert Peston’s TV programme as support for Mr Johnson crumbled around him on Wednesday night.

So far she also has the support of Sir Desmond Swayne, Jason McCartney and Henry Smith.

Also among the declared candidates are Jake Berry, who has a home on Anglesey and who spent a large part of the first lockdown on the island.

Former Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Tom Tugendhat have also declared their candidacies, Rishi Sunak doing so with a slick video that showcased his background.

Rishi Sunak’s resignation from the cabinet on Tuesday helped trigger the mass walkout of ministers that forced Boris Johnson to stand down as Tory leader.

He announced his candidacy with five MP backers already in place, including Leader of the House of Commons Mark Spencer.

Clever tactic by the Tory party set the bar so low with Braverman, and the public will go for anyone who claims to be a centre right politician, no matter how far to the right they are. Quote from Braverman ” if I get trolled and I provoke a bad response on Twitter, I know I am doing the right thing” , says the woman who supports the Rwanda policy.

Oh dear, if you want to know what someone with lower standards than Johnson or even RT looks like, look no further, say hello to Suella Braverman (not her real name) if you don’t believe me check out what The Secret Barrister and others have to say about her. Another absolute clown that shouldn’t be anywhere near politics.

I believe you…if Sunak wins he is likely to seriously bankroll both Patel and Braverman…to make someone who believes in the natural justice of an underclass fated to live and die on the streets should not be PM…be afraid folks…

Millar is the chair of the Conservative Union Research Unit, thats 70 back bench MP’s . Ultra Unionist, as Braverman is too. Also she is gettin more backing from the right wing brextier European Research Group.
She is ultra unionist, right wing brexit and uses the word woke as a weapon . So appealing to theose in her party who favour One Nation Conservativism.

I think Braverman was the first chair of the ERG…Dear old Fat Shanks has opened a real ‘Pandora’s Box’…

By Christmas any thought of building houses and hospitals will have been abandoned and the only building work going on will be prisons and forced labour camps for striking workers and climate protesters…and Mark Francois will be a Field Marshal…

The idea that the member for Aberconwy supports Braverman is stomach turning…I still have not recovered from the shame of Nathan Gill turning his back on the European Parliament…to be rid of this curse in Wales while I still live would be a triumph…this is really a reply to the piece on the poll that predicts the almost complete removal of right wing politicians from our land.
