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 senior civil servant speaking more damningly of the government he used to serve.
- dismissed the attempts of Theresa May and her team to shift blame onto civil services as ‘completely ridiculous‘
- described Tory policies as ‘gruesomely unfair‘ and ‘brutal‘
- even went as far as to say that even some ministers considered those policies as ‘reminiscent of nazi Germany‘ in their application
Watch and share:
Amber Rudd’s sheer incompetence and blame-shifting has made her position untenable – and Theresa May’s repeated lies on the subject of the ‘Windrush generation’ and her government’s handling of their cases, appeals and documents mean that she should resign for knowingly misleading the UK public and parliament alike.
