Poll shows Britons blame May more than Rudd for Windrush scandal

[Composite: Sky News.]

Almost eight times as many people think Theresa May is to blame for the Windrush scandal than think Amber Rudd was responsible.

Yet Ms Rudd has resigned and Mrs May is carrying on.

Clearly, the public is not satisfied that justice has been done – nor should we be.

The only reason Ms Rudd resigned is that she was caught lying to Parliament.

Mrs May has also lied, and has allowed others to lie without intervening.

So far, nobody has been brought to account for the injustices done to thousands of UK citizens.

We know the name of the culprit: Theresa May.

She will never do the decent thing willingly. She isn’t that kind of person.

Only the weight of public opinion will force her out. So let’s bring that weight to bear.

Voters are much more inclined to blame Theresa May for the Windrush scandal than Amber Rudd, according to a Sky Data poll.

Some 31% of those surveyed think Mrs May, who was home secretary at the time, is responsible for the mistreatment of those involved, with two in three agreeing that her government is now “unstable”.

In contrast, just 4% hold Ms Rudd mostly to blame, with 24% blaming civil servants, and 18% blaming the last Labour government.

Despite this, the majority (55%) think Ms Rudd did the right thing by stepping down, against 29% who say she should have stayed.

Amber Rudd is the fourth cabinet minister to resign in six months following Michael Fallon, Priti Patel and Damian Green.

And the public appears to have noticed, with 64% describing Theresa May’s government as unstable, against 33% who think it is stable.

    I am pleased to see that the pressure is still on the dishonest May. It must be kept up because I think this rotten, stinking corrupt government could fall like a pack of cards.
