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 cancer treatment and leave citizens stranded in Jamaica:
Rudd’s resignation was necessary – but she was the junior partner in the racist policies and procedures that have done such damage to our Windrush citizens. Theresa May’s departure must follow – and Rudd’s replacement, Sajid Javid, does nothing to change the malignancy at the heart of this government.
