247 – The UK government has taken the decision to remove a ministerial aide from his position after he spoke in favor of a ceasefire in the Gaza area, a position “which is not consistent with the government’s principles of collective responsibility”. informs BBC.

Last week, Paul Bristow, the Tory MP for Peterborough, sent a letter to the Prime Minister in which he said a “permanent ceasefire” would have the potential to save lives and allow humanitarian aid to reach the region. . .

Although the British government supported “humanitarian truces,” it did not support a complete ceasefire. Like the United States, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak asserts Israel’s right to self-defense.

Following his dismissal, Bristow, who served as parliamentary private secretary to Michelle Donelan, Secretary of State for Science, Innovation and Technology, said: “I fully understand the Prime Minister’s decision. It is regrettable that I have left the role that I have left.” “I appreciate that, but now I can publicly address an issue that is of profound importance to many of my constituents. I believe I can do that more effectively from the benches of Parliament rather than on the government payroll.”
