Tories win vote on document release as the right betrays the Windrush generation

The Windrush arriving in 1948 The Tories have defeated a Labour motion for the release of all documents and communications concerning policies and actions affecting the UK’s Windrush citizens, by 316 votes to 221. Theresa May whipped her party to participate in a vote on a Labour motion – revealing how much she has to hide […]

Video: new Home Secretary Javid misleads House

New Home Secretary Sajid Javid – supposedly the new broom to put things right at the Home Office after the racist policies of his two predecessors caused misery for thousands of Windrush citizens – started where his immediate predecessor left off. By making a provably-untrue statement to MPs and the nation – less than ten minutes […]

We’re supposed to think Javid will end ‘hostile environment’? His record suggests not

Former Communities Secretary Sajid Javid has been appointed to replace Amber Rudd as Home Secretary. Judging by the apparently-coordinated media and social media campaign from Establishment figures, we’re supposed to think that a ‘BAME’ (black, Asian, minority ethnic) Home Secretary marks an end to the remote, callous and frankly racist policies of the ‘hostile environment’ […]

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. The Establishment will not willingly let the plaudits for such an occurrence go to anti-Establishment figures. Many ‘MSM’ outlets are […]

Woodcock DEFENDING Rudd means he’s finally “jumped the shark”

Semi-detached Labour MP John Woodcock has long looked like he was pining for the benches on the other side of the house, attacking his own leader – inaccurately – in the Commons, going on ‘secret’ jaunts to Saudi Arabia and tweeting images to defend that country’s attack on neighbour Yemen. He was even told by […]

The govt’s deportation document – for Jamaicans and only Jamaicans #Windrush

Home Secretary Amber Rudd remains under huge pressure to resign, following her admission today that the Home Office does have targets for the removal of Commonwealth and other citizens – on top of a series of scandals about the government’s abysmal, inhumane treatment of Windrush-generation citizens. The existence of a newly-discovered government document, stored on official […]

A message to Rudd from her constituency

Home Secretary Amber Rudd on General Election night 2017, when it appeared she had been unseated. Who’d have guessed that wouldn’t be her lowest point in twelve months? Floundering Home Secretary Amber Rudd is in such trouble that she has resorted to pleading ignorance about almost everything to do with her department and its treatment […]

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 […]
