I’m still reeling from Rishi Sunak’s shameless, dangerous speech | Caroline Lucas

It wasn’t, as we saw from other world leaders that day, a condemnation of open gunfire against starving people trying to reach aid trucks in Gaza, or a statement of solidarity with Russian protesters against Putin.

Sunak’s performance made a new art form of rank hypocrisy, as he pretended not to know that the very extremism he criticised was being actively driven by his party and peddled in his speech.

He dared to criticise others for being divisive and separating Muslims from the rest of society, having spent the past few weeks failing to call out and condemn Islamophobia within the ranks of his own party.

He also had the audacity to point the finger at others for crushing the dreams of young people, when his party has failed this generation repeatedly – be that on affordable homes and renters’ rights, or the climate emergency that so seriously threatens their futures.

But Sunak actively chose to pour more petrol on the flames, abandoning any last semblance of responsibility, as he spoke of our streets being “hijacked” by violent extremists calling for jihad, while his own colleagues spread their dangerous no-go zone myths.

By choosing to give that inflammatory speech, Sunak has shown that he is prepared to lurch even further to the right in a bid to stop defections to the Reform UK party.
