Suella Braverman comes out fighting as she condemns pro-Palestine marchers of ... trends now

Suella Braverman yesterday said pro-Palestine marches 'polluting' the streets with hate 'can't go on', following ugly scenes at the weekend.

The Home Secretary condemned the 'valorising of terrorism' on Armistice Day and said further action was needed to stop it.

More than 100 arrests were made after clashes involving far-Right groups and pro-Palestine protesters in central London on Saturday.

Mrs Braverman's intervention came as speculation rages about her political future after she clashed with Downing Street over a newspaper article, which critics said inflamed tensions.

Ahead of Saturday's protest, the Home Secretary branded it a 'hate march' and accused officers of 'playing favourites' with protesters. Last night, amid rumours of a Cabinet reshuffle, she doubled down on her comments.

In uncompromising language, Mrs Braverman tweeted that chants, placards and posters carried by some protesters were 'clearly criminal' and marked a 'new low'. 

She added: 'Anti-Semitism and other forms of racism together with the valorising of terrorism on such a scale is deeply troubling.

'This can't go on. Week by week, the streets of London are being polluted by hate, violence, and anti-Semitism. Members of the public are being mobbed and intimidated. Jewish people in particular feel threatened. Further action is necessary.'

In spite of her comments about the police, Mrs Braverman thanked them last night, saying it was an 'outrage' that nine officers were injured in the line of duty.

Hundreds of thousands took part in Saturday's rally, despite the Prime Minister describing it as 'disrespectful and provocative'. 

Ministers are understood to be urgently looking at giving the police new powers to prevent future protests after officers said they were unable to halt the latest march under existing laws.

The new laws could enable officers to take into account the cumulative effect of weeks of protests on members of the public, such as the Jewish community. Marches have taken place in London on every Saturday since the Hamas terror attacks on October 7.

While ministers believe there is a lot police can do with their existing powers, officers appear to be nervous about using them to act on slogans
