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 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.

  1. Rudd was the junior partner well said!
    May as Home Secretary must have set the Targets, that Rudd promised to harden….

  2. Sterling repartee, but Abbott should’ve threw in tweezer getting abu qatada deportation date wrong, too, for good measure.

    Although (as explained on t’other thread) it’d more than likely be used by the meeja to somehow ‘promote’ the ‘pearl of wisdom’ that is mizz balls…

  3. It’s very difficult to see how Theresa May can wriggle out of this, she was directly responsible for introducing these policies as HomeSec and perpetuating them as PM. TM didn’t advice or order Amber Rudd not to proceed with the 10% increase in deportations when she read AR’s memo.

  4. Do not forget entitlement to benefits,housing,healthcare and the fear that if they leave this country to attend a wedding or a funeral they may not be allowed back in.
    That is the the reality of the situation.
