London

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak fired Suella Braverman as home secretary on Monday for saying what nearly three quarters of Conservative Party voters think. In the short run, Ms. Braverman’s sacking deprives her of a platform to challenge Mr. Sunak’s leadership. But when he dares to face the voters—at some point before January 2025, according to electoral law—the Conservatives will be eviscerated. Mr. Sunak has put personal interest before party, and party before country.
