Direct quote from her
"“I think we have got to definitely substantially reduce the number of students, the number of work visas and in particular the number of dependants on those sorts of visas,” she said."
Her premature ministerial-obit has a fair bit in its summary...
It was not Braverman’s first unexpected intervention. At Conservative party conference, she revived calls for the government to aim for net migration of “tens of thousands” – a goal which remained out of reach for nine years under the governments of David Cameron and Boris Johnson.In an interview with the Spectator, Braverman expressed “reservations” about the multibillion-pound trade deal with the Indian government because she was concerned about making it easier for Indians to work and study in the UK. No 10 rowed back from her claim.Unfortunately ... as The Guardian puts it .. this might all be CV building to become the next PM. May be in early 2023? When the Brits go .. we tried a woman, we tried an Indian as PM ... now lets try an Indian woman.At Conservative party conference, Braverman told delegates it was her “dream” and “obsession” that one day she would as home secretary see a flight take off to Rwanda carrying people seeking refuge in the UK.

Those criticisms, contained in her last act as the 43-day home secretary, may well form the basis of another Braverman leadership bid in the near future.

I hope Sunak will reshuffle her to a lower status job if he manages to get his feet under the table.

There is nothing casual or lazy when I label some people as disgraceful.
I am going to be lazy and casually walk out of this thread... have said what I needed to and wanted to.
