PM facing tough week over Braverman and Rwanda

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak is facing a challenging week, with key issues concerning Home Secretary Suella Braverman and the government's Rwanda plan for migrants.

Braverman has been criticized for remarks about police bias, leading to speculation about her future in a potential cabinet reshuffle. This reshuffle is anticipated to be a major development, but Sunak is known for his cautious approach.

The Supreme Court is set to announce a decision on the government's plan to send asylum seekers arriving on small boats to Rwanda. This decision is a critical moment for the government, with the outcome potentially impacting Braverman's position and the government's immigration policy.

Additionally, new inflation figures will be released, which are crucial for the government's promise of halving inflation this year. This data will be important in assessing the government's economic performance.

Finally, a vote in the House of Commons, proposed by the Scottish National Party, calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, could pose a dilemma for Labour Party members. This vote, if it happens, might lead to further shadow ministerial resignations, as it conflicts with leader Sir Keir Starmer's policy.

This week is significant for both the Labour leader and the Prime Minister, as they navigate these complex and impactful issues.
