Braverman campaigned to leave the European Union in the 2016 EU membership referendum; a majority (55%) of votes in her constituency were for leaving.

In March 2019, Suella Braverman stated in a speech for the Bruges Group that “as Conservatives, we are engaged in a battle against Cultural Marxism”. Journalists present at the event included Dawn Foster, who challenged Braverman’s use of the term “cultural Marxism”, highlighting its anti-Semitic history and its connection to the manifesto of the mass murderer Anders Breivik.

Suella Braverman responded, “Yes, I do believe that we are in a fight against cultural Marxism. We have a culture evolving from the far left which is about snuffing out freedom of speech.” Her use of the term was initially condemned as hate speech by other MPs, the Board of Deputies of British Jews and the anti-racist organization Hope Not to Hate, among other anti-racist charities.

Braverman denied that the term was an antisemitic trope, saying, “We have culture evolving from the far left which has allowed the snuffing out of freedom of speech, freedom of thought. I’m very aware of that ongoing creep of cultural Marxism, which has come from Jeremy Corbyn.” After meeting with her later, the Board of Deputies of British Jews said in a subsequent statement that she is “not in any way antisemitic”, saying it believed that she did not “intentionally use antisemitic language”, while finding that she “is clearly a good friend of the Jewish community” and that they were “sorry to see that the whole matter has caused distress”.

Attorney General

Suella Braverman was appointed as Attorney General for England and Wales and Advocate General for Northern Ireland on February 13, 2020 reshuffle, succeeding Geoffrey Cox who had been dismissed from government. She is the second female Attorney General and the first Conservative female Attorney General.

Political and legal positions

Suella Braverman stands on the right-wing of the Conservative Party, is a hardline Brexiteer, and supports sending cross-Channel migrants to Rwanda. She has said, “If I get trolled and I provoke a bad response on Twitter I know I’m doing the right thing. Twitter is a sewer of left-wing bile. The extreme left pile on is often a consequence of sound conservative values.”

Braverman has described herself as a “child of the British Empire”. Her parents, who were from Mauritius and Kenya, came to the UK “with an admiration and gratitude for what Britain did for Mauritius and Kenya, and India”. She believes that on the whole, “the British Empire was a force for good”.

She was the founding chair of governors at the Michaela Community School and supports plans to create a free school in Fareham. She sits on the advisory board of the New Schools Network, a charity that aims to support groups setting up free schools within the English state education sector.

In a December 2015 op-ed, Braverman wrote, “In essence, rights have come to fill the space once occupied by generosity.” She quotes Eric Posner’s theories on what the Brazilian state sees as its right to use torture by “the police in the name of crime prevention. They justify this by putting a general right to live free from crime and intimidation above their rights of those who are tortured.”

She closes: To correct the imbalance, perhaps we should adopt a Universal Declaration of Responsibilities and Duties, to be read in tandem with that on Human Rights? A fair, decent and reasonable society should question the dilution of our sense of duty, the demotion of our grasp of responsibility and our virtual abandonment of the spirit of civic obligation. What we do for others should matter more than the selfish assertion of personal rights and the lonely individualism to which it gives rise.

In 2020, as Attorney General, she stated the UK Government’s legal position about the possible impact of the UK Internal Market Bill on the Northern Ireland Protocol: It is an established principle of international law that a state is obliged to discharge its treaty obligations in good faith. This is and will remain, the key principle in informing the UK’s approach to international relations. However, in the difficult and highly exceptional circumstances in which we find ourselves, it is important to remember the fundamental principle of Parliamentary sovereignty.

Parliament is sovereign as a matter of domestic law and can pass legislation that is in breach of the UK’s Treaty obligations. Parliament would not be acting unconstitutionally in enacting such legislation. This ‘dualist’ approach is shared by other, similar legal systems.

In an interview with The Times, Suella Braverman said that schools do not have to accommodate requests from students who wish to change their gender, including the use of the pronouns, uniforms, lavatories and changing facilities of a different gender. She argues that, legally, under-18s are entitled to be treated only by the gender of their birth and that the “unquestioning approach” adopted by some teachers and schools is the reason different parts of the country have very different rates of children presenting as transgender. Braverman also expressed admiration for J. K. Rowling, referring to her as “a heroine” of hers.
