Humiliation for Tories over insensitive tweets supporting Amber Rudd

[Image from Twitter.]

It’s nice to see Jeremy Hunt sticking to his principles – even though they are all wrong.

Shortly after Amber Rudd resigned as Home Secretary, Mr Hunt tweeted this:

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:

He wasn’t the only one, though.

Michael Gove got on the bandwagon without realising where it was going, producing this monstrosity:

“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.

It might have been kinder to forgive Ms Rudd’s brother Roland for his loyal tweet:

But he wasn’t:

This should be the last word on the matter:

    Ha ha, I notice the corrupt and dishonest Hunt recognises a fellow liar. The bigger the embarrassment the better.

    They are so devoid of any form of conscience, and decency, that it certainly wouldn’t be a surprise to see Rudd recycled into another role. After all, they have done that with Graying, after failing in every role, and also McVile.

      One would think it impossible that somebody such as Rudd, who has lied to, has deliberately misled the house and nation should ever sit on the front bench again. But she will, she will. But the front bench, led by Mrs May where she herself leads a cabinet of liars – you know who they are: Gove, Johnson, Fox, Grayling, to blame but a few. Then there’s Green and his other sacked mates just biding their time until their return to the front bench, the place where, of course, they were born to be.

        The place from which they were born to be sacked.
        And they’ll never make it back to the front bench if we vote the Tories out before they have the chance.

    What’s disturbing is the thousands of like these tosspots got for their drooling sycophancy. Even two thousand Tories shows that no matter how useless they are, there are always people ugly enough inside to ignore their crimes against the nation..

    I can feel a smidgin of sympathy for Rudd, because she has taken the blame for May’s horrible, racist policies. But, she lied, quite deliberately about what she knew and didn’t know and has taken the consequences. May lied about the same things, but remains in office. She should, had the the principles and decency she claims, as a clergyman’s daughter, go, too. May has a track record going back to her days at the Home Office, of sacking people for implementing her policies. Even Rees Mugg says that people who deliberately mislead the house: i.e. by lying to it, should go.
