As we remember #Manchester victims, remember this. #security #cuts

As the nation remembers the victims of the Manchester bombing, with grief for those killed and admiration for those who have overcome terrible injuries, the Establishment is presenting that grief and inspiration without proper recognition of what went before. In the aftermath of the bombing a year ago, as the UK prepared for a general […]

More pressure on May to resign – she personally vetoed NHS doctor visas

Yet more pressure is piling onto Theresa May with the revelation in tonight’s Evening Standard that she personally vetoed visas for Indian doctors desperately needed by the NHS. Hospital trusts went public last week on the dangers the block – which has prevented the arrival of hundreds of doctors just since last December – has posed to NHS […]

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

Labour front-bencher Dawn Butler pulled no punches last week when telling Sky News and the Commons about Theresa May’s lie – to MPs and the nation – about the destruction of the historical landing cards of the arriving Windrush generation – an act that made it far harder for UK citizens to prove their right […]

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 […]

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. Her replacement by Sajid Javid – a minister with a dire voting record on immigration and of callous incompetence in office – bodes ill for the Windrush generation […]

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 […]

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. It is a disgrace to our politics that it took so long and so many attempted evasions before she took responsibility for her part in the scandalous treatment […]
