Theresa May: This should be her police ‘mug’ shot.

It is the end of the week in which the Windrush Generation scandal was exposed – and our racist prime minister still hasn’t resigned. Why the delay?

Perhaps Theresa May has been waiting for her complicit Tory press to publish information that lets her off the hook for her many racist policies, including the racist ‘go home’ vans, the racist decision to destroy the landing documents of the people who arrived here from Commonwealth countries after 1948 and the racist decision to persecute them to deportation or death for being unable to produce these same papers in evidence to support their right to live here.

That information was published yesterday (April 19), by Mrs May’s former joint chief of staff Nick Timothy – and was proved to be a lie only hours later.

Mr Timothy, who is apparently now a columnist for the Telegraph, tweeted a link to his latest effort that – it seems – he has now deleted:

It quoted part of his column that stated: “Theresa May was criticised for the notorious “go home or face arrest” vans that were deployed in 2013. In fact, she blocked the proposal, but it was revived and approved in a communications plan while she was on holiday. She killed off the scheme later that year, but by then the damage had been done.”

Sadly for Mr Timothy, damage was about to be done to his own reputation. Firstly, nobody believed his claim:

Then evidence emerged, showing that we were right to doubt him. Read:

“Home Office emails from 2013 seen by Bloomberg show that on March 4 that year, four months before the vans were sent out, both May’s office and her special advisers, who at the time included Timothy, were sent plans for Operation Vaken, including images for the publicity.

“Far from objecting to the plan, May’s only objection at that point was that it might look too soft on illegal immigrants.”

This report suggests that Mrs May even demanded that the wording be “toughened up”:

“Emails at the time suggest May had actually discussed the vans with her advisers while away.

“And not only did she approve the proposals, May also requested that the language of the slogans was “toughened up” before the vans were rolled out.”

So now we know that, not only did Theresa May lie to Parliament and the country by saying the decision to destroy the Windrush Generation landing documents was made by the Labour government in 2009, but Mr Timothy lied about her decision to send racist vans around London that led to false complaints that UK citizens were illegal immigrants.

The racist prime minister is desperate to avoid the blame for this scandal that she planned and executed – and this is very odd, considering her own previously-broadcast opinions about ministerial responsibility:

Let’s have that again, in visible form:

Mrs May had been demanding the resignation of a Labour minister at the time (2004).

Why is she not showing the strength of her convictions by following her own advice?

We know the reason, of course – she is a hypocrite as well as a liar.

Further information is coming to light now, that shows her attitude to the so-called ‘Windrush children’ was even worse than our worst expectations:

“In a House of Commons debate, Mrs May said: “we will extend the number of non-suspensive appeals so that, where there is no risk of serious and irreversible harm, we can deport first and hear appeals later.”

Is that because the landing cards had been destroyed? Gary Barker, below, wants to know:

More damning was the revelation that thousands of people with every right to live in the UK may have been shipped out to Commonwealth countries – on secret flights:

“More than 7,600 people have been returned to countries including Pakistan, Nigeria, Ghana, Sri Lanka and Jamaica on charter flights escorted by security officials since 2010.

“The flights are controversial because little is known about their operation and passengers can be handcuffed or fitted with leg and waist restraints.

“Campaigners fear the flights could involve Commonwealth citizens being unjustly deported.

“The figures were released as the Government faces mounting pressure over the Windrush crisis. It has taken the Home Office 16 months to respond after i requested the figures in 2016.”

Michael Rosen has an important point to make:

Worse may follow. I have just received a request for me to ask how many people have been deported from our prisons, for lack of paperwork supporting their citizenship.

And yet Theresa May still clings to power.

She has done much worse than lie to Parliament.

In fact, her resignation should be just the first step in an investigation into the full extent of her cruel, immoral and possibly homicidal activities.
