A Conservative member of the London Assembly was escorted out of the Tory party conference after he appeared to heckle Suella Braverman’s speech.
Andrew Boff was led away by police after declaring “there’s no such thing as gender ideology” while the home secretary was speaking about “those who fail to conform” are “chased out of their jobs for saying that a man can’t be a woman” when “the left gets the upper hand.”
Braverman continued with her speech after Boff was led away.
Braverman used the speech to draw migration battle lines between the Conservatives and Labour ahead of the next general election.
She suggested the Human Rights Act, introduced under the last Labour government, was among a series of laws and regulations which had “enmeshed” the Government’s effort to tackle the small boats crisis in the English Channel.
Home Office figures have confirmed that more than 25,000 people have been detected crossing the Channel in small boats this year.
Addressing the main stage at the Conservative Party conference in Manchester, Braverman said the future “could bring millions more migrants to these shores, uncontrolled and unmanageable, unless the government they elect next year acts decisively to stop that happening”.
