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.
