Amber Rudd can do nothing to save herself. Will she quit willingly or do we have to push her?

Save your sympathy for someone better than Amber Rudd. Her downfall is entirely of her own devising.

It’s funny, and it’s true. The reason Ms Rudd didn’t grasp the scale of the Windrush scandal is obvious:

She is as vile a racist as her prime minister, Theresa May.

Does nobody remember her racist speech at the Conservative Party Conference less than two years ago (2016), when she actually used the BNP slogan, “British jobs for British workers”, and stole a leaf from Adolf Hitler’s book – seriously; the idea was in Mein Kampf – by demanding that company bosses should declare the number of migrant workers they employ?

Her speech was recorded as a “non-crime hate incident” by police after Oxford University physics professor Joshua Silver complained to the police; even though they refused to investigate (police do everything they can to avoid investigating Conservative MPs), rules endorsed by Ms Rudd demanded that the incident must be recorded.

And her comments fit perfectly with the way the government has treated migrant citizens like the Windrush Generation – bosses told to behave as border control officers; UK citizens deprived of their jobs.

This is not the only evidence, but it was an early indication that Ms Rudd is unfit for office.

The public know it – and so does Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott:

Did Ms Rudd fail to read those documents, though? Really? As minister, she sets the targets. It beggars belief that she is claiming she didn’t know about them.

So it seems that, to protect herself and Theresa May, Ms Rudd has lied repeatedly to Parliament and to the citizens of the UK. And what has been the result? Here:

But lying to Parliament and the nation is a breach of the Ministerial Code:

Ms Rudd’s excuse is that she is too lazy to read all the documents presented to her and never saw the memo stating how close the Home Office was to hitting the deportation targets that she – as secretary of state – would have set. She says she never knew about the targets despite having been the minister responsible for setting them.

Her continued position as Home Secretary is untenable, whatever she does.

The only reason she could have for remaining is to be a human shield for Theresa May, the former Home Secretary – now prime minister – who devised the racist “hostile environment” policy that caused so much unnecessary harm to so many innocent UK citizens.

But this issue is not going to go away – not when the Home Office is still carrying out mass deportations to Jamaica, in direct contradiction of claims by both Ms Rudd and Mrs May:

One way or the other, Amber Rudd must leave the government. The evidence demands her resignation and she should just get it over. Then we can turn our attention back to Theresa May.

    My money is on Teflon Theresa sacrificing Rudd after the May election results are declared on the basis that there is a strong possibility that the Tories will do badly and she will be looking to shore up her own perilous position

  2. Pat Sheehan

    Only a week or so ago I wrote to the so called ‘Prime Minister’ of the ‘zombie’ party begging them all to resign to stem the tide of lies and deceit but the tsunami of treachery and incompetence continues unabated with vicious undertones of racism that could no longer remain concealed and now another letter is required. Democracy shouldn’t and needn’t be this difficult. It’s clear to me it’s not ‘democracy’ we need in ‘government’: what’s missing is INTEGRITY!

    Why do the police protect Tories from prosecution when at least 20,000 of them have been made redundant?

    And what do they get paid for when they can’t or can’t be bothered to read their important documents? its peoples lives they’re juggling with?

  4. NMac

    These corrupt liars will cling on by the scrapings of their fingernails, but every day she remains in office keeps the Tory scandal and nastiness in the headlines and ensures it will not be forgotten.

  5. Terminator

    Rudd, Gove & May all need to quit, but not before she calls a General election. The only reason Rudd is still there is so it doesn’t come back on May

    When Thatcher declared her avowed intention of “rolling back the state” people chose to ignore it, thinking it would not affect them. Theresa May is as her previous clone David Cameron did, carrying on that agenda.

    What people do not appear to understand is how important the state is, and the failure of capitalism to achieve their promised aims. We were told that the private sector would provide better services, more efficiently, and that people would prosper. On every count the system fails yet people never seem to register that fact.

    Theresa May is not clinging on to power for the sake of this country or its people, she is carrying out the next phase in the Neo-Liberal agenda of setting up a trade deal with Trump so that American companies can have a free rein to walk in and take over our public services including the NHS. All the ground work is now in place, all it will take is the final piece of legislation to enshrine in law, the god given right for American companies sue any government that denies them the right to seek profit.

    That is what this is all about and has been over the last thirty years since Thatcher, the problem people also don’t understand that the right wing MPs in the Labour party have the same agenda, and are doing everything possible to stop Jeremy Corbyn getting Labour elected, because he and the left of the party are the only ones standing in the way of this insanity. What are the rewards for such treachery, just look at the revolving doors in Westminster and the final payoff. Blair suddenly becomes a multi millionaire and now works on the board of J.P.Morgan.

    When a political system has to rely on a corrupt media and lies through their teeth, surely there are enough sane people in this world to understand that this can’t be in their interests.
