Video: Lammy makes Rudd’s position untenable – pointing out all she claims not to know

Labour back-bencher David Lammy has been widely praised for his part in Labour’s pressure on Theresa May’s ‘human shield‘ over the Windrush scandal, Home Secretary Amber Rudd – and this morning he may have driven a big nail into the coffin of her career. Just by pointing out, with calm gravitas, what she claims she […]

Video: May has a ‘Windrush problem’ – she knew they were citizens and did it anyway

Theresa May attempted to extricate herself – and her partner in crime Amber Rudd – from the scandal of the racist abuse of the Windrush generation by repeating a probably focus-grouped mantra ad nauseam: They are British. They are part of us. Perhaps she was hoping we wouldn’t notice. But as Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy pointed […]

Tories fail for year to answer for £100k raid on bereaved families. Then cancel their one appearance

Imagine being a parent of young children, then finding out not only that you are terminally ill – but that a law change introduced by the Tories a year ago is going to take £100,000 of vital support from your bereaved family.

Video: Butler accuses May and govt of racism – “an apology is not good enough”

Shadow Women’s and Equalities Minister Dawn Butler appeared on Sky News this morning to discuss Theresa May’s immigration policies and her treatment of the ‘Windrush generation’ of UK citizens, who have been shamefully hounded by May’s specific policies, which in 2014 withdrew protections they enjoyed under 1973 immigration legislation. The interview was explosive: Nailing May’s […]

Former adviser: “May on holiday at time of ‘Go Home’ vans”. Let’s see…

Former Downing Street adviser Nick Timothy has written a column in the Telegraph today, claiming that Theresa May is not responsible for the infamously loathsome ‘Go Home’ vans sent out by the government in 2013 because, allegedly, she was against them and was on holiday when they were approved. That does not appear to be […]

Video: former head of civil service damns Tories over #Windrush handling and policies

Sir Bob Kerslake, the former head of the civil service, appeared on the BBC’s Newsnight programme tonight to talk about the government’s ‘hostile environment’ immigration policies, the Tories’ attempts to blame civil servants for the huge controversy of government decisions to destroy crucial documents and their treatment of immigrants generally. It’s hard to imagine a former […]

Amid the justified fury about Theresa May’s decision to lie to MPs and the public about the decision to destroy landing cards that would have prevented ‘Windrush generation’ migrants being harrassed and even deported by the Home Office – and the BBC’s decision to cover for her – one important passage of today’s ‘PMQs’ appears […]

BBC ‘s had more time to check or qualify May’s Windrush lie. It doubles down instead

As the SKWAWKBOX published earlier, Theresa May appears to have lied outright in telling MPs and the nation that the decision to destroy landing cards – cards that would have proven the right of ‘Windrush generation’ immigrants from the Commonwealth to remain in the UK – was made by a Labour government in 2009. A Sky […]

Video: May just lied to House and nation re Windrush – and BBC is promoting it. #PMQs

Theresa May appears to have just lied outright to the House of Commons and to the whole country.
