May broke ancient protocols to defeat Windrush transparency. What was she so desperate to hide?

The Tories have already created outrage and a great deal of suspicion by their decision to ‘whip’ Wednesday’s vote against Labour’s call for documents and communications about May’s racist ‘hostile environment’ policies that have inflicted so much damage and distress – including deportation, homelessness, denial of medical treatment – on our ‘Windrush generation’ citizens.

Video: Labour’s Butler to C4 – “May needs to resign”. C4 – “how much more can she take?”

Video: S*n pol editor calls Rudd ‘scalp’ for ‘witchhunt, no sorry, really important story’

S*n political editor Tom Newton Dunn made an interesting and possibly Freudian slip today on the BBC’s Daily Politics programme when, while describing Theresa May’s ‘insulation’ from the Windrush scandal, he described public outrage over the forced deportation, denial of medical treatment and barring from employment of UK citizens as a ‘witch-hunt‘. Newton Dunn quickly corrected […]

Video: May admits she knew about deportation targets. Her resignation must follow

Amber Rudd’s resignation this morning was inevitable when she was revealed to have misled MPs and the nation by claiming there were no Home Office deportation targets.

Video: Abbott’s response to Sky’s biased attempt to excuse Rudd raises blisters

A Sky News presenter attempted this morning to minimise Amber Rudd’s culpability for the abysmal treatment of Windrush citizens by claiming it’s hard to keep track – and snidely reminding Shadow Home Secretary that she once mixed up a number during a radio interview. Ms Abbott icily pointed out what she hadn’t done: ruin lives, deny […]

Sky try to credit Cooper – but Abbott, Butler, Lammy real architects of Rudd’s downfall

Amber Rudd and the chief drivers of her downfall The fall of the occupant of one of the ‘great offices of state’ is a major political event – and a huge scalp for the opposition.

Rudd resigns. It must only be a staging post to the real culprit

  Former Home Secretary Amber Rudd – and the real Windrush villain Amber Rudd has resigned as Home Secretary over the Home Office’s treatment of the Windrush generation.

Tory Chair Lewis slip ends Rudd’s career. Abbott applies finishing touch

Labour’s Diane Abbott and her dishonest counterpart This morning on the BBC’s Marr show, Tory party chair Brandon Lewis shamelessly attempted to cover for beleaguered Home Secretary Amber Rudd’s lies over deportation targets – which have combined with the revelation of the impact of racist Home Office policies and the miseries they have inflicted on […]
