Suella Braverman urges Tories to back her in leadership fight over her love for Britain… not because of her skin colour

  • Suella Braverman urged fellow MPs to vote for her because she loves Britain
  • The Attorney General said not to vote for her for the fact she is a woman 
  • She said : ‘Vote for me because I love this country and would do anything for it’

Suella Braverman urged fellow MPs to vote for her because she loves Britain – rather than because she is ‘brown’.

In a speech delivered to a packed room in London’s Churchill War Rooms, the Attorney General said: ‘Don’t vote for me because I’m a woman. Don’t vote for me because I’m brown.

‘Vote for me because I love this country and would do anything for it.

‘Vote for me because I have a clear vision and have experience working at the top of government. But most of all, vote for me because I’m a Conservative.’

Mrs Braverman, pictured, vowed to tackle ‘stubborn’ working-age people who ‘refuse’ to get jobs to help cut the cost of government and fund a ‘radical’ plan to slash taxes.

She pledged to remove VAT from energy bills as well as reduce corporation tax in order to attract investment. To cut spending, she set out long-term public service reforms.

And the Tory leadership hopeful also pledged to tackle ‘multibillion-pound wastage’ in the way taxpayers’ money is used.

Mrs Braverman, a law graduate and former barrister, has also pledged to take the UK out of the European Convention on Human Rights in Strasbourg, saying it was ‘no longer fit for purpose’.
