Shortly after Amber Rudd resigned as Home Secretary, Mr Hunt tweeted this:
Devastating news for all of us lucky enough to serve with @AmberRuddHR. In cabinet she was always a true statesman who spoke her mind publicly and privately irrespective of the politics. She will be missed until she is back which she will be!
— Jeremy Hunt (@Jeremy_Hunt) April 30, 2018
What a vile threat!
And what a lie. “Spoke her mind publicly and privately irrespective of the politics”? She slavishly followed Theresa May’s racist immigration policy and diverted funds from the police so protection of the law took second place to persecution of the populace.
He got short shrift on the social media:
I like the way Jeremy Hunt focuses his sympathies on the people who’ve lost jobs, health care & even their freedom as a direct consequence of the May/Rudd Home Office’s decisions. https://t.co/9LG35iIBOL

A narcissist speaks. Never mind the devastated lives… Poor Amber. https://t.co/1qxV3Gfy08

He wasn’t the only one, though.
Very telling that Tories are queuing up to praise Rudd . She a mendacious, corrupt ex-banker, just their type.

Michael Gove got on the bandwagon without realising where it was going, producing this monstrosity:
I’m so sad about Amber’s departure from government – she was a huge asset – brave, principled, thoughtful, humane, considerate and always thinking of the impact of policy on the vulnerable – I hope Amber will be back soon – we need her
— Michael Gove (@michaelgove) April 29, 2018
“Humane”? Tell that to the Windrush Generation who she persecuted brutally.
“Always thinking of the impact of policy on the vulnerable”? Tell that to the Windrush Generation who she persecuted brutally.
And of course a repeat of the vile threat that Ms Rudd may return – one presumes that will happen when the Tories think we’ve forgotten what a filthy liar she is.
So if Rudd is such a beacon of truth and light that must mean the person responsible is Theresa May. https://t.co/gfXfWuSC6s

Yes, Michael. Amber Rudd is the real victim of the #WindrushScandal.
It’s definitely not the people being threatened, detained, refused medical treatment and deported thanks to your party. https://t.co/VdeyS2O9pE

It might have been kinder to forgive Ms Rudd’s brother Roland for his loyal tweet:
So proud of my sister Amber. She is so unselfish, compassionate, kind, trustworthy wish immense integrity. She is motivated by strong sense of public duty and when dust settles will be remembered for being a great Home Secretary in hugely difficult circumstances.
— Roland Rudd (@RolandRudd) April 29, 2018
But he wasn’t:

This should be the last word on the matter:
Question: Who is this Amber Rudd that Tories are describing this morning?, Because it certainly ain't the disgraced former Home Secretary who should be grateful she isn't facing prosecution for Misconduct in Public Office
