Home Secretary Amber Rudd – the person Theresa May has thrust into a leaders’ debate because she daren’t appear herself – covered herself in shame and disgrace this morning by trying to exploit last Monday’s tragedy in Manchester for the sake of a cheap smear in the desperate hope of political gain. As ITV News reported,
Home Secretary Amber Rudd has suggested a General Election victory for Labour would increase the risk of future terror attacks.
Rudd’s comments rightly provoked absolute outrage on social media, with even comedian Bill Oddie getting in on the act:
How low can they get? Amber Rudd says:" vote Corbyn, get more terrorism." And if we vote May, we wont? Do you promise? No shame Tories.

Pretty bloody low, Bill. Pretty bloody low.
If the Tories are so desperate that they’re that crass, the Telegraph’s disclosure of barely-concealed panic at Tory HQ over their disastrous campaign and Labour’s polling surge starts to look very, very believable.
The Tories are in chaos – and Amber Rudd’s sudden status as a figurehead shows just how dire things have become.
